San Diego Chargers’ status as a top team: Last week, the Chargers were one of six 2-0 teams. They looked terrific on both sides of the ball after early-season wins over the Oakland Raiders and the Tennessee Titans. However, now they look ordinary team after being whipped 27-3 at home by Atlanta. The Falcons are one of the best teams in the NFL and they toyed with the Chargers. San Diego did not belong on the same field as Atlanta.
The lowdown: The Chargers last week became the third AFC West team in a Peach State three-pack of losses last week. The Falcons are now one of just three 3-0 teams in the league because they waltzed through most of the AFC West (wins over Kansas City, Denver and San Diego).
