The Morning Charge

Canceling out Rivers: The odds are good that San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, who’s got record passing yardage through eight games, will be able to move the ball against Houston’s porous pass defense. Rivers should succeed even with injuries at receiver and to Antonio Gates.

The Texans’ career scoring leader may have trouble finding the correct dressing room at Reliant Stadium on Sunday.
Kicker Kris Brown will be excused if he turns right rather than left for the visiting dressing room when the San Diego Chargers arrive for their game against his former team.

If the San Diego Chargers are going to leave Reliant Stadium in Houston on Sunday with a win over the Texans, they’re going to have to do it with a depleted squad.

No Chargers player listed as doubtful for a game this season has played in that game.

On Friday, tight end Antonio Gates was one of four Chargers listed as “doubtful” for Sunday’s game at Houston.

Coming from Norv Turner, the words actually felt quiet. Intense, yes, full of urgency. Yet calm. Considering how many times the head coach had hollered at rookie wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu over the past few months, it was almost a whisper.
