Chargers vs. Bills: Joey Bosa could make Derwin James even better

Garrett Sisti and Jamie Hoyle are back with a brand new episode of the Lightning Round Podcast.

The Chargers get their first win of the young 2018 season with a 31-20 win over the Buffalo Bills. Garrett and Jamie are here to discuss three important storylines from their win on the road. They take some questions about the Chargers secondary, their run defense and the “confidence” the defense is playing with through two weeks. The guys discuss the rookies, Philip Rivers excellent...

Los Angeles Chargers TE Virgil Green proving valuable in front of Antonio Gates

Antonio Gates is a nice option behind Virgil Green on the Los Angeles Chargers offense. Right now he is depth and a 3rd down tight end. It is nice to have Antonio Gates back on the roster to bring depth at the tight end position. He gets to fill that role of a 3rd down […] Los Angeles Chargers TE Virgil Green proving valuable in front of Antonio Gates - Bolt Beat - Bolt Beat - A Los Angeles Chargers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Offensive observations from the Chargers’ 31-20 win over the Bills

The Los Angeles Charger took care of business in Buffalo. It wasn’t exactly what you’d call a picture-perfect win, but they made the cross-country trek, played a solid first half of football, and rode a 22-point halftime lead all the way to a victory.

On the one hand, the team bounced back from a humiliating loss to Kansas City by winning a game we all expected them to win. They controlled it from the jump, scored 28 first-half points, and got Austin Ekeler more involved. That, in and of...

Surge or Static: Have a day, Rookies!

The future is looking oh-so bright for the Chargers rookie class.

Man, does it feel good to write this up following a win, and after a pretty solid one, at that.

The Chargers came out and, at least in the first half, did what everyone expected of them. Putting up four touchdowns and strolling into halftime with a 28-6 lead that they would never relinquish.

We are only two games into the 2018 regular season and the Chargers’ rookie class has already exceeded most people’s short-term...

5 takeaways from a Chargers’ blowout vs. Buffalo Bills - Alexander Insdorf
Derwin James was a human wrecking ball on the field, getting to Josh Allen with sacks, as well as playing some great pass defense. Kyzir White transitioned nicely into a linebacker role and made some great plays, including a great interception to seal the game. Uchenna Nwosu got a great sack in the first quarter and got four tackles to go along...

Rules analysis: How was that not a safety?

And what the heck is impetus?

In the middle of the 3rd quarter of the game yesterday, there was a play that was/is confusing to many football fans. If you’re a Chargers fan, you’re probably wondering why the team was not awarded a safety. Bills fans probably wonder why Nwosu wasn’t ejected for his devastating and injuring hit on Taiwan Jones. I’m not going to touch the latter question as it is likely going to be split down party lines whether you think it was a dangerous play, or an...

Three Drink Minimum podcast #2: Chargers are going to the Super Bowl Baby!

More instant reaction and hot takes!

Back for another instant reaction pod following the Chargers comfortable win. I know the final was 31-20, but the game really wasn’t close at all. You could tell it was going to be an easy victory very early on in the game. The Bills first possession ended with a sack. The Chargers scored a touchdown on their next four possessions. Here’s the audio:

The only bad I really noticed from yesterday was Russell Okung and Antonio Gates. Okung was 1-on-1 for...

Chargers-Bills final score: Los Angeles Chargers defeat the Buffalo Bills 31-20

The Chargers started the game on offense with Philip Rivers working with an empty backfield. He was flushed from the pocket and picked up 7 yards on the ground. They tried a jet sweep to J.J. Jones on 2nd down, but it was easily stopped by the Bills. Melvin Gordon caught a pass in the flat and only had to get by one guy to get the easy 1st down, but in a surprise to nobody at all he lost his feet and fell. That brought on the punt team.

Josh Allen’s first drive as a starter was ended by...

Watch: Josh Allen shows off ridiculous arm strength on deep pass

Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen made his first career NFL start in Sunday’s game against the Chargers, and it didn’t go very well.The Bills defense really did Allen no favors, unfortunately, as the Chargers jumped out to a 28-3 lead. Philip Rivers picked the Bills' defense apart, often utilizing playmaking running back Melvin Gordon.Allen, did, to his credit, show off how strong his arm is on one particular play, uncorking a an absolute bomb to Zay Jones that traveled nearly 65...

REPORT: Chargers safety Derwin James will return kicks against Bills

UPDATE: After one kickoff and one punt there is no sign of Derwin James. This was a fun idea while it lasted, I guess.

During today’s pregame show on CBS, the announcers casually mentioned that Los Angeles Chargers rookie safety Derwin James will be returning kicks today against the Buffalo Bills. With Travis Benjamin sidelined by injury and J.J. Jones having made one of the worst return blunders you’ll ever see last week, this makes sense. James is a dynamic playmaker and it is smart...

Chargers vs. Bills Open Thread

The Los Angeles Chargers (0-1) have traveled to Orchard Park, New York, to take on the Buffalo Bills (0-1). Both teams are still looking for their first win of the 2018 NFL regular season and if the Vegas odds are right then the Chargers should be the ones to find theirs. The Bills are starting their rookie quarterback, Josh Allen, whom they originally intended to redshirt this year. Unfortunately, Nathan Peterman was so awful last week that they were unable or unwilling to follow through on...
