SAN DIEGO -- It’s a physical game here where the Ravens lead the Chargers 21-16:
San Diego is moving the ball well against the Ravens’ tough defense but it had to settle for three field goals despite getting deep in Baltimore territory.
Chargers fans are not happy that Chargers coach Norv Turner opted to kick a field goal with 10 seconds remaining in the first half on third down and goal from the five instead of taking one more crack at the end zone. I have to admit, it was a curious decision.
There is a lot of hitting going on, which is expected from the Ravens. The Chargers are battered, but they are hanging in there.
Despite playing without 40 percent of their offensive line, San Diego is going well offensively.
San Diego has given up touchdown passes on broken coverage plays in both games this season. That has to change.
The Ravens are running the ball well, a clear sign that the Chargers miss defensive tackle Jamal Williams. He was put on the injured reserve Saturday with a triceps injury.
You have to love Darren Sproles. He had a beautiful 81-yard touchdown on a short pass in which he displayed his jaw-dropping speed and he had a long kick return. The kid is just special. As long as the Chargers don’t wear him out, he is a game changer.
