Eagles vs. Chargers 2013: Game time, TV schedule, online streaming and more

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles are flying following their impressive Week 1 victory over the Redskins in Landover, Maryland. Philadelphia will now host the Chargers, who are traveling across the country after an extremely disappointing loss to the Texans in their home-opener. While Philip Rivers and San Diego's offense proved that they could put up points, their defense allowed 24-straight points from the Texans in the second-half of their game. They would go on to lose to Houston by the score of 31-28.

LeSean McCoy will get the ball early and often on offense, and that should set up the pass for Michael Vick and DeSean Jackson. Tight ends Brent Celek and Zach Ertz should also see some more targets.

While the Eagles will test the Chargers secondary and linebackers while on offense, on defense they will attack San Diego's offensive line. Defensive coordinator Bill Davis will likely continue to blitz from everywhere on the field and force Rivers to make quick decisions. Hopefully, the Eagles can continue to force turnovers.

This could be a very long day for the Chargers' play-callers.
