Don’t Give Up If the Chargers fall behind in this game, Chip Kelly’s offense will allow us to get right back in the game. Just look at how close Washington came to bringing that ballgame back on Monday Night. The Chargers can pull off the comeback this time if they need to.

Protect Philip Rivers
The Eagles are aggressive on defense and will be sending the blitz from all angles. They will send 6 or 7 players on that blitz and the Chargers will need to make sure to pick up the guys that are coming through. They also better be prepared with the hot read on some plays. Danny Woodhead could be a huge player in this passing game out of the backfield for the team.

NO TURNOVERS!! We have to protect that football. The interception last week was death. Ryan Mathews did a good job of holding onto the football, even with the Texans ripping away hard at the football all game long. The Eagles and everyone else in the league will have that same gameplan. Hold onto the football.
