Eagles latest to try to take Chargers' home-field advantage

The Rams are suffering a historic attendance decline
In the world of sports, a desperate team is the most risky thing you will find. His missed a potential game-winning attempt from 44 yards in a 19-17 loss to Miami in the Chargers' home opener two weeks ago. Check out our latest staff picks. Last week, North Star earned a victory in this column by going against the Chargers.
- Joel Embiid showed up at Sixers media day and says his X-rays are clear, which means he's only about six months away from returning to action. Fans can see the Eagles-Chargers game on FOX with kickoff set for 4:05 p.m.
Alexander Insdorf (1-2): "It's a touch matchup to call for me, as it usually is".
- Jake Elliott's 61-yard field goal against the Giants was the longest in franchise history. The Eagles should win this one handily but do not be surprised if it is one of those unusual afternoons where the Eagles just never get going.
"There's been times where there has been a game like that and it would have been 35 to nothing when I have a span like I had for 15 minutes there", Rivers said.
Quarterback Philip Rivers has struggled this season, and the team has followed his lead.
Backup defensive tackle Destiny Vaeao (sprained wrist), and safeties Corey Graham (strained hamstring) and Jaylen Watkins (strained hamstring) also will stay home. The loss of Sproles will change how the Eagles use their running backs. Opposing running backs have been targeted 16 times and have 12 catches for 117 yards (9.7 per catch) and one TD.
The Eagles are catching Rivers after he threw three interceptions and no touchdowns with a 37.2 quarterback rating against Kansas City last week.
Tyler Schoon (1-2): "The Eagles have quite a few injuries, and appear to be lacking in areas the Chargers can exploit".
Royal continued his strong play midway through the third quarter and the Chargers took a 10-point lead on a 24-yard score. After a successful first year back in L.A., the Rams are on pace for the biggest year-to-year drop in attendance of any National Football League team in the last 25 years, according to FiveThirtyEight's Daniel Levitt. The Eagles racked up 511 total yards while the Chargers put up 539.
With a now 0-3 record, a partly-filled stadium that only seats 27,000 people, and a money-grubber of an owner, failure seems imminent for this Los Angeles team. The Chargers will keep it close but will find a way to lose another close one late. "Eagles win 21-14".
Philadelphia, which began last season at 3-0, will present a challenge for the Bolts on several fronts.
NEW DIGS, OLD PROBLEM: The Chargers have lost 26 of their last 35 games dating to the start of the 2015 season.
I think the Eagles have the defense to nearly never get blown out this season, but I have a bad feeling about this one. "Chargers win 24-20".
All-Pro defensive tackle Fletcher Cox won't make the trip to the West Coast for the Eagles' game with the Los Angeles Chargers this weekend. Is the season already over for the Bolts? According to Reich, the Eagles are preparing to face off against one of the NFL's most-proven veteran signal-callers.
