Chargers sign CB Davontae Harris

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Harris spent time with Renaldo Hill in Denver.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Chargers announced the signing of cornerback Davontae Harris to the active roster whom they snagged off the 49ers practice squad. He'll immediately add depth to a position in dire need of it.

Harris was originally a fifth-round pick out of Illinois State by Bengals back in 2018. He's also seen time with the Ravens and Broncos with his stint in Denver being his most productive of...

Chargers Week 13 Power Rankings Roundup

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Bolts are barely hanging on to the top-16.

A loss to the Broncos understandably dropped the Chargers quite a bit across the media’s power rankings. After the primetime win over the Steelers, they were barely hanging onto their status of a fringe top-10 team. Now after the loss to Denver, they’re barely hanging on to a place in the top half of the league.

At 6-5, the Bolts still have a decent shot at making the playoffs, but a game against the...

Best and worst Chargers PFF grades vs. the Broncos

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The left side of the offensive line is simply crushing it.

Sunday’s contest in Denver may be the game that challenges the performance against the Ravens as the ugliest outing for the Chargers this season. They needed a victory to stay ahead in the division and to keep some distance between them and the bottom two teams in the division. The Chargers responded to the challenge by dropping the game by 15 points and leaving Mile High with a fairly...

Chargers Daily Links: What are the Chargers top 3 draft needs?

Joshua L. Jones via Imagn Content Services, LLC

Your source for all Chargers and NFL news from around the web.

Good morning, Chargers fans!

Today, we’re starting the day off with a discussion on what you believe to be the Chargers’ top-three needs in this upcoming draft. After recent weeks where several positions groups were throttled due to injuries and/or players being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, we’ve all gotten to see just how shallow this roster is.

I think if I...

Chargers Week 12 ‘Surge or Static?’: James, Allen were rock-steady in frustrating loss to Broncos

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Who stood out, and who floundered against the Broncos?

Games like that one always make writing this up incredibly difficult.

First, it leaves me with few to no good choices for our “Surge” section. Secondly, it gives me too many choices to pick from for the “Static” section. I always want to balance this article as best as possible, but sometimes the product we’re forced to work off of is just...unfortunate.

But like we always do, we press...

On the trip to Denver, who was on the field for the loss to the Broncos

The Los Angeles Chargers started too flat in their trip to Denver to take on the division opponent Broncos this week. After a pretty miserable first half, and two costly interceptions, the Chargers were unable to overcome the deficit.

Lets dive into who played and how much.

Offense

With starting left guard Matt Feiler out due to an ankle injury, the Chargers staff decided to start...

Chargers fail to show up against Broncos, earn abysmal game grade

Pain.

It was a must that the Chargers go into Denver and come out with a victory if they wanted to keep some form of distance between them and the Raiders and Broncos that are both hot on their heels in the AFC West.

I always make it clear that games in the division are competitive, but that’s actually not what this was at all. It was a self-inflicted a**-whooping. The Broncos offense really only left the field when they wanted to. They went...

It’s early as I’m typing this up and the sting from yesterday is still alive and well.

Brandon Staley said following the game that they lost as a team and I definitely have to agree with him. Offense, defense, and special teams were all bad and underwhelmed greatly. These types of losses are always the worst since you cannot truly feel the catharsis that comes with finding the one...

Chargers open as 2.5-point underdogs on road against Bengals

No surprise after what just happened in Denver.

Following a surprisingly-lopsided loss to the Broncos, the 6-5 Chargers have opened as 2.5-point underdogs on the road next week against the 7-4 Bengals, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The over/under is currently set at 51.

The Bengals are coming off their own lop-sided game against the Steelers in which they dismantled Pittsburgh to the tune of a 41-10 drumming. Joe Burrow only needed to throw for...

Chargers Final Score: Chargers 13, Broncos 28

Alright, I think it’s OK to start panicking.

The Chargers got off to an unusually rough start on Sunday, beginning the game with back-to-back three-and-outs while they watched the Broncos build up an early 14-0 lead. The Chargers finally got on the board with a touchdown prior to halftime but failed to score any points in the third quarter where they held the ball for the entire period aside from three plays. On the first play of the fourth quarter,...

Finish strong!

The Chargers needed that spark. Derwin James is a monster and Justin Herbert can still bounce back from adversity.

Time to finish strong and get the damn job done.

Keenan Allen ties Antonio Brown for fastest to 7,000 career receptions

That’s our WR1.

While the Chargers fought back from a 14-0 deficit against the Broncos, wide receiver Keenan Allen crossed another receptions record off his list. In the first half, Keenan Allen caught his 7,000th reception in his 111th career game. That mark ties current Tampa Bay wideout Antonio Brown’s record for the fastest player to 700 receptions in a career. Other notable receivers who hit 7,000 receptions after their 111th game were...

It’s game day, Chargers fans. It’s been awhile since the team’s last divisional matchup and they’ve got a great opportunity to stay undefeated against a Broncos team that’s currently decimated by injuries at several key positions, including both of their starting offensive tackles.

Can this be a massive day for guys like Joey Bosa and Uchenna Nwosu?

Chargers Week 12 Inactives: Feiler, Rountree out against Broncos

Feiler tried to make it happen but ultimately will be sidelined in Denver.

In some rather unfortunate news, starting offensive guard Matt Feiler will be inactive today against the Broncos after testing out the injured ankle and quickly determining it just isn’t possible to go today. In his place, expect either veteran Senio Kelemete or rookie Brenden Jaimes make their first career start for the Chargers.

In another surprise move, rookie running...

3 things to watch for against the Broncos

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Gordon isn't going home happy today. Not if the Bolts have anything to say about it.

A stiff Broncos defense is on tap for the Bolts in what should be a decently hostile environment at Mile High. The Chargers should have all the motivation they need today as they look to keep from falling into the divisional scrum behind the Chiefs.

This game likely has the most original storylines of any contest the Chargers have played this season due to a number...

Both offensive guard Matt Feiler and safety Trey Marshall are questionable while cornerback Asante Samuel Jr. and safety Alohi Gilman have both been ruled out.
