evaporated into Oakland's Black Hole on Thursday night — and it might have swallowed their hopes for a return to the playoffs Womens Uchenna Nwosu Jersey , too.A 26-24 defeat to the Raiders ended Los Angeles' two-game spurt and dropped the Bolts to 4-6 for the second time in three years. Now they're facing a rocky schedule and long odds of returning to the postseason a year after winning 12 games.Four of their final six games are against teams over .500. Two are against Kansas City, including a matchup Nov. 18 in Mexico City. Even if the Chargers do make a run, they aren't likely to win any tiebreaker thanks to lousy marks in the conference (2-5) and division (0-2)."We have to work our tail off to reach our goal, which is to get back to the tournament. I don't know if we can lose another game, and they understand that," coach Anthony Lynn said.Los Angeles won five of six to finish 9-7 in 2017 but was on the wrong side of a four-way tiebreaker for the two wild cards.In a two-point game, two plays loomed large — Philip Rivers' pick six in the first quarter, and missed tackles in the secondary on Josh Jacobs' go-ahead 18-yard touchdown.After the midweek loss to Oakland, the Chargers get extra time to prepare for the Chiefs, which Rivers sees as an advantage."They have a different defensive coordinator. It won't be the same that we had there for the last six or seven years. We won't be as familiar Russell Okung Jersey ," he said. "I think the rest will be good and get a little bit of a head start of preparation."WHAT'S WORKINGThe running game is back to being one of the team's strengths after two straight 100-yard games for the first time since the first two games of the season. The Chargers ran for 146 yards and averaged 4.9 yards per carry as new coordinator Shane Steichen's mantra of calling plays quickly has got the ground game back on track. Most of the yards came from Melvin Gordon, who had his first 100-yard game of the season (108 yards, 22 carries).WHAT NEEDS HELPRivers needs to get going quicker in games. Six of Rivers' 12 turnovers have come in the first quarter. He had two interceptions in the first 10 minutes against the Raiders, which led to 10 points and included a pick six."We have to figure out a way to do better because we can't keep turning over the football. That has been happening way too much this year," Lynn said.STOCK UPMelvin Ingram has 3½ sacks in the past two games. The defensive end took advantage of Oakland trying to double-team Joey Bosa with two sacks of Derek Carr, marking the fifth game of his eight-year career with two or more sacks.STOCK DOWNThe offensive line, which struggled all night against four-man pressure by Oakland's defensive line. Rookie Trey Pipkins came in at left tackle after Russell Okung suffered a groin injury during the first half and was outmatched at times.INJUREDBoth starting offensive tackles are dealing with injuries. Right tackle Sam Tevi (knee) was inactive and Okung had to depart for the second time in three games due to a groin injury. Lynn said Tevi had knee surgery Friday but is not done for the season. An MRI on Okung's groin showed no significant damage.Safeties Derwin James (knee) and Adrian Phillips (arm) remain on injured reserve but are doing work on the side and will make the team trip to Colorado Springs to practice at altitude before the Mexico City tilt. It remains unlikely both would be ready to play against Kansas City.KEY NUMBER3 — Receptions of 45 yards or more by Mike Williams in the past two games. The third-year receiver has emerged as Rivers' top target on deep passes in the same way that Tyrel Williams was last season.NEXT STEPSThe Chargers have the weekend off before heading to the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs for a week to prepare for the Chiefs.

On throws within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage http://www.thechargerslockerroom.com/authentic-kyle-emanuel-jersey , Grier was off target only 5.5% of the time – the best such figure in all of college football. As much I’ve hammered home downfield throws mattering most, that sort of pinpoint placement underneath is still a valuable skill. And it’s not like he couldn’t throw the ball down the field.2019 NFL Draft fixes for all 32 NFL teams - PFF Analysis TeamScharping performed well over the course of his college career and earned pass-blocking grades above 87.0 every season. During his entire career with the Huskies, he only allowed five sacks, and four of those sacks came in his freshman year. With players like Cody Ford and Andre Dillard likely getting taken ahead of Pick 28, the Chargers could get a good consolation in Scharping.NFL draft predictions for all 32 teams: Who's trading up, who's taking a QB and more - ESPNThe Bolts have only three defensive tackles on the roster -- Brandon Mebane, Justin Jones and T.Y. McGill -- so it should be a position they target early in the draft. They need an interior pass-rusher with a profile similar to Chris Jones of the Kansas City Chiefs -- a player who can push the pocket, helping talented edge rushers Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram get to the quarterback more consistently.NFL GM Power Rankings: John Dorsey, Kevin Colbert rank top 5 - Gregg RosenthalFew general managers have bigger hits spread across the draft ( Joey Bosa, No. 3 overall; Derwin James Womens Forrest Lamp Jersey , No. 17; Keenan Allen, No. 76; Desmond King, No. 151) and free agency ( Casey Hayward, Russell Okung) than Telesco. Then again, the organization has underperformed, considering Philip Rivers' Hall of Fame-level of play. The team's lines remain unfinished on both sides of the ball.Three reasons to be optimistic about the Los Angeles Chargers - John WozniakRivers has broken passing records for a quarterback not to have appeared in a Super Bowl. Anthony Lynn has done a great job at coaching the Chargers into a competitive team. 2019 is going to be tough, but Rivers and the Chargers’ senior squad members have what it takes to reach the playoffs. Topping the AFC West should be priority number one.Social Media Information:BFTB Facebook Page: Click here to like our pageBFTB Twitter: Follow @BFTB_ChargersThe Lightning Round Twitter: Follow @Lightning_RoundThe Lightning Round Facebook: Click here to like our pageBFTB Manager: Richard Wade: Follow @RichardWade
