Melvin Gordon tackles current game Chargers to hurt


The Chargers lost Sunday as, when they wanted, they couldn't get one yard on the ground.

It was not convinced that the original courtyard of the yards that were compatible with the Bears also did not help out there.

For the third week in a row – all from the beginning Melvin Gordon back from his contractual possession – the Bears were struggling with their current game.

“We can throw the ball against anyone who is tight, our wide residents, our quarter coach,” Anthony Lynn said. “We need to find out how best to run the ball. We need to get chemistry with the line of attacks and we must do a better job. ”

When they have lost their three matches, the Chargers have scored 51 times for 106 yards.

Gordon, who lost the first four weeks, has 81 yards on 36 behavior, average 2.25-yard. He still received no more than seven yards of any carriage.

Against the Titans, the Bears really went back. They finished with 39 yards on 21 tries. Only two of the first 24 downs emerged.

“We still need the current game,” aggressive line man Dan Feeney said. “We are still there. We are better ahead. We start these plays so Mel can score more easily. ”

Already not cope with them Russell Okung and center Mike Pouncey, the Chargers lost another offensive linear man Sunday Forrest Lamp He went down with an ankle injury.

The Bears had no update on their status after the match, leaving the lamp in the beginning.

Quessenberry Scott instead of the Lamp and moved to the center. Feeney, who started at the center, moved to a left guard.

“It's a terrible man to lose,” Feeney said. “It's always hard to come in cold. I thought Scott did a good job while trying to control the huddle. He is a young man, so we tried to help him. I think he did a good incoming job. ”

Okung lost the first seven games after having pulmonary embolism in June. It was cleared to return to practice last week and it could play Sunday against Chicago.

Pouncey is out for the season because neck surgery was needed. The Chargers are not sure whether he will be able to resume his career.

“It is always the worst feeling when someone goes down,” Feeney said. “But the game continues. We get a solution. We need to find an algorithm to win. This week, we certainly need to continue studying and working. ”

Pick the teamer

In spite of this defeat to the Bears, there was a lifetime highlight for safety Roderic Teamer.

The first intercepted career by the unapproved rookie from Tulane, picking out her Ryan Tannehill pass was deflected by edge rushes Uchenna Nwosu.

“It's a great feeling,” said Teamer. “It's an exciting time, which you dream of as a child. I am just having a hard pastime now enjoying, as you can imagine. ”

Teamer emerged during a training camp and the preliminary season to capture the attention of Chargers. He moved into the front lineup after Adrian Phillips He had a broken hand against Detroit in Week 2. Teamer finished Sunday with six to fight, including one for a loss.

The play looked as a result was interrupted as the Titans were being run soon. Back road Casey Hayward he warned Teamer that Tennessee would probably try the play again.

“When they made the same offer, I was expecting it,” said Teamer. “I like it if the ball wasn't stuck, you would still have chosen it, to be honest.”

While some of the Chargers wanted to say that they lost the similarity they had with the one they suffered on Sunday, Teamer said that he had received the same loss in college.

During his junior season, Tulane collapsed on his territory – and a chance to go to a bowl game – when the fourth round did not rule up to the victory at the end of the goal.

“I think it came into this day,” said Teamer. “It was that L's difficult to take. This was worse today. It strengthens a lot more. It's tough. ”

Watch out

Among the failures made by Chargers against the Titans, it was very acute in the first quarter when they were victimized by a false pound.

On a quarter and eight offline 43 Chargers' yard, Tennessee punter Brett Kern took the snap and passed it Kevin Byard, the team begins for free safety, out of 11-yard gain. The trickery placed a 45-yard field goal up Cody Parkey your first points of the game.


Philip Rivers, which ended 24 out of 38 for 329 yards and two back, moved down Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger to sixth place in the NFL current register of passports. … Tight end Hunter Henry the way it is expected the 2-5 Chargers are now responding: “A group of fighters is here. I think you saw that at the end today. We are not going to give up. ”
