The Chargers are certainly the “other” team in Los Angeles right now but they can’t be discounted just yet. On offense they are led by one of the most savvy quarterbacks in the league making them a threat in almost every game, especially on the road.
Don’t get too excited but the Browns have two wins on the season after beating Baltimore in a game that saw only one touchdown scored. I guess Baker Mayfield is not going to revolutionize offense in the NFL over night.
Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers did not have much trouble with the Raiders over the weekend but they find themselves already two full games behind the Chiefs in the AFC West. Sure they can make that up in head to head meetings but that is only if they are able to keep them in sight.
Against Oakland Philip Rivers was his customary efficient self, 22-27 for 339. The Chargers still struggle with the ground game from week to week but at least Melvin Gordon is a threat when he has the ball and they stick with it just enough that makes playaction actually a thing for this group.
The defense is not as strong as the offense and is awaiting the healthy return of Joey Bosa. He is their biggest difference maker and gives them a strong pass rush from both sides. Forced to get creative they are using rookie safety Derwin James all over the field and he has already collected three sacks and one interception. The Browns will have to know where he is on every down.
If the Chargers are going to be a real contender in the AFC this is a game they have to get. There is no doubt that Rivers can outplay Mayfield and the line is such that they do not have to dominate for everyone to go home a winner.
The Browns are hardly playing great football but their fans will take it – two wins already and they have not lost a game at home, 2-0-1. The reality is that until they slip below .500 you have to consider them a contender in the AFC North. Sorry Baltimore, I am not sure what that loss says about you.
The top story after the fact that the team is actually winning is Baker Mayfield. This was his third game and in each one he has set a new high in yards. The current record is 342 and that might stick for a little while. What is obvious is that he provides energy to the team and they are willing to let him take some chances.
Any game where the defense doesn’t yield a touchdown is pretty good. Baltimore was able to get into the red zone three times and all three times they were forced to attempt a field goal. That gave their own offense the ability to win the game in overtime.
Taking on the Chargers at home is going to be a real challenge. This Cleveland team rightfully has more confidence than anyone in the last five years or more but the way the Chargers score points Mayfield is going to have to generate some as well.
