After playing at home in Week 3, the Philadelphia Eagles are back on the road for their third away game in a four week span. The Eagles are set to face the Los Angeles Chargers.
The Chargers are 0-3 through the first three games of the 2017 season. They kept things close in the first two weeks before the Chiefs comfortably beat them last Sunday.
One would think the Chargers are desperate to get on the board with their first win. That might be the case. Then again, this is a team that’s playing in a market that doesn’t seem to really care about them. The fans the Chargers had in San Diego feel alienated from their former favorite team.
Los Angeles has a number of talented players on their roster. Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram combine to form a fearsome pass rushing duo. Former first-round running back Melvin Gordon is more skilled than his career stats might suggest.
Overall, though, it’s not like this team is stacked. Dating back to last season, the Chargers have lost eight games in a row. They’re 10-29 going back to their last four games of the 2014 season.
This is a winnable game for the Eagles. The travel factor is also something to consider, but it’s not like the Birds will be playing in some hostile environment. If Philadelphia wants to contend for the playoffs, they’re going to need to take care of business against lesser teams. The Chargers are a lesser team right now. The Eagles need to show they mean business.
Here's everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
