Interestingly enough, the San Diego Chargers have either lost by three points or won by three points, in the three games that have been played. At one point, the Chargers have also led each of their three games and sits sternly in third place in the AFC West. The Chargers also finished the game against the Tennessee Titans without three of their starters on the offensive line, D.J Fluker with a concussion prior to the game and losing two more starters in King Dunlap and Chad Rinehart. At the start of the match, the team was missing five starters, three of which are defensive players:Malcom FloydD.J. FlukerDonald ButlerManti Te’oShareece Wright
The three most susceptible players to miss the battle against the Dallas Cowboys is looking to be Fluker, Dunlap and (the obvious) Floyd.
The hope is that the Chargers break the trend of three and not allow the next possible three to occur, which would be our third loss in four games after they play the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Dallas has a demanding run defense and San Diego will rely heavily on the aerial attack to win this game, let’s hope the offensive line can quickly get healthy and provide the protection needed to win this one.
