Los Angeles Teams

ESPN Stats and Information  

Both the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers recorded shutouts Sunday. It's the first time in the Super Bowl era two teams from the same city recorded shutouts in the same week.

After starting the season 0-4, the Chargers have won three straight. And at 3-4, the Bolts still remain in the postseason conversation and therefore have reason for hope nearing the midpoint of this the 2017 campaign. Getting a win on the road next week against the defending Super Bowl Champs, the New England Patriots, would push the Chargers to .500 heading into the bye week.
