The Chargers defense has played a single high coverage 76% (104/170) of the opponents drop backs. They will also be forced to stack the box due to RB Doug Martin’s presence.

Of all the things that came out of the ugly loss on Sunday by the Ravens, it’s that they have some issues that need to be fixed. Ravens coach John Harbaugh was pretty blunt with how everything should be looked at after the Texans beat them down. And as DT Haloti Ngata told me about the defense, “Right now, we’re at the bottom.” They’ve lost LB Ray Lewis, they’ve lost CB Lardarius Webb, Ed Reed has a torn labrum, and Ngata pointed out, “Today I was… I wasn’t 100 percent.” Duh.

We arrived in Houston last night for the Packers-Texans game, expecting to see a showcase of one of the NFL’s heavyweights. We did. Except, it wasn’t the Texans. QB Aaron Rodgers put on a show, a six touchdown masterpiece in a 42-24 beat-down of the Texans. All those offensive struggles, the inaccuracy from Rodgers, the up-and-down play? Not last night. Instead, it was the Texans shooting themselves in the foot. As for Rodgers, he put the team on his back. And, as I learned in the Packers locker room, it’s exactly what he told his team would happen. He wanted to be a leader, and he led. “It was time for our offense to make a statement,” center Jeff Saturday told […]
