Remember that DeMarcus Ware vs Mike Harris matchup that never came to fruition? This Friday is another chance for Mike Harris to go up against a big time pass rusher.

This week’s matchup for the undrafted rookie: Minnesota Vikings DE Jared Allen.

Allen was last season’s NFL sack leader, finishing with 22 sacks. He has finished with double-digit sacks in the last 5 seasons.

Harris had his share of issues against the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys didn’t even have their best pass rushers available for that game. How will he do against the very best?

The Chargers will have to give help of the left side of the line to keep Allen off of Philip Rivers’ back. Maybe we should just line up another tackle at tight end position to make sure Philip gets out of this game unscathed. We don’t need another injury!
