San Diego Chargers
Every game this weekend has fascinating plots, from Cincinnati trying to break their playoff futility to the Frozen Tundra earning its sobriquet with a 30-below wind chill expected Sunday.
The Cincinnati Bengals had an unexpectedly successful season with an AFC North crown and a trip to the playoffs. Now, they’re facing off with a San Diego Chargers team they beat just a few weeks ago, but they may be facing them without a number of players.
If you ask many people around the NFL to give you a prediction for this weekend’s San Diego-Cincinnati AFC Wild Card game, most folks would lean towards the Bengals.
Eli Manning famously shunned the city of San Diego in the 2004 NFL Draft after publicly stating that he would NOT play in San Diego if drafted. He was welcomed back on Sunday.
The Cowboys announced Tuesday they have signed defensive end Jarius Wynn and released defensive tackle David Carter and cornerback Chris Greenwood.
Dallas is near the bottom in pass defense and likely to be tied for the league lead with 10 TD passes allowed with Manning set for his first visit to the Cowboys’ stadium after throwing for 16 scores in the first four games.
The visitor’s locker-room door at Qualcomm Stadium featured thick iron bars and a coat of blood-red paint. Following Sunday’s 30-21 loss to the Chargers, there seemed symbolism in that door.
The Dallas Cowboys off-and-on season continues, as the Cowboys lost to the San Diego Chargers in Week 4. Here is a look at the Cowboys team grades for the fourth game of the NFL season.
Philip Rivers and the rest of the Chargers team made sure that they did not let a fourth-quarter lead slip away against the Cowboys, rallying to win 30-21 on Sunday.
Inactive for the Cowboys are wide receiver Miles Austin, cornerback Chris Greenwood, guard David Arkin, center Phil Costa, tackle Darrion Weems, tight end Andre Smith and defensive end Caesar Rayford.
The only game the Dallas Cowboys lost is the only one in which Anthony Spencer played. That sure doesn’t mean they wish it was his last of 2013.
The Dallas Cowboys stand accused of having long suffered from what Jimmy Johnson calls “optimistic infection.’ Does optimism cause a football team to overlook its weaknesses? Or does it help a football team overcome them?
