Chargers player heard venting 'Every game's an away game!

Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood rushed 10 times for 34 yards and a touchdown, while adding 4-of-6 catches for 45 yards through the air in the Eagles' Week 4 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Defense - without Fletcher Cox - came up big on the first possession of the game when a rolling Philip Rivers was stripped from behind by Chris Long to quickly put the Eagles offense on the field.

If the Eagles can control the tempo in this game, they should be in good shape of returning from the West Coast victorious.

These were the skills that prompted Reid to give Pederson a resounding endorsement before the Eagles hired him last January, and they are the skills that now have them sitting at 3-1 on the season and 10-10 in Pederson's career.

The Eagles rookie cornerback has been solid so far this season, but Sunday wasn't his best performance.

But for the second week in a row, Wentz quarterbacked the Eagles over another backs-against-the-wall winless opponent. So when Tyrell Williams burst past Rasul Douglas at the line, Rivers knew where to go.

It was Blount who loomed as a ghost just two games prior, failing to notch a carry against the Chiefs as onlookers openly questioned his role.

Philadelphia picked up four first downs on the ensuing drive, running out the clock.

The corners came up big for the Eagles in the red zone - and got away with some contact - to force the Chargers to kick a field goal. A kick from rookie Younghoe Koo would edge up the Chargers to 10 points right before halftime. It should hold true for Pederson, too (it's also worth mentioning that, one week after the Eagles beat the Redskins on the road, the Rams lost to them at home).

The Eagles do not have a great defense and the Chargers should be able to have some success against them on Sunday.

The Eagles figure to have a hard time having their cake and eating it this week.

The Eagles offensive line dominated. Carson Wentz hit Zach Ertz with another gorgeous pass - this time t Zach Ertz for 38 yards.

Last week's hero Jake Elliott was a flawless 4-for-4 on field goals and 2-for-2 on extra points, and despite the defense giving up a combined 38 points in the fourth quarter the last two weeks, the Eagles didn't need any last-second heroics this week.

Be cautiously optimistic. Philadelphia is allowing just 75 yards per contest to opposing running games through three weeks.

The Eagles answered quickly with a big run of their own. When LeGarrette Blount rumbled for a 68-yard gain, it erupted again. "Look, we had 74 [offensive] plays yesterday to our defense's 53".

The Chargers are led by quarterback Phillip Rivers, running back Melvin Gordon and wide receiver Keenan Allen.

The Chargers, who are playing their first season back in Los Angeles after 56 years in San Diego, have been struggling to attract support in their new home. Moments later, the call was reversed and ruled a touchdown, as the Bolts trailed 26-24 to the Eagles.

The contrast was so stark that it even became a focus of the broadcast, with sideline reporter Shannon Spake explaining that she'd heard "GO EAGLES" chants throughout the day.
