Lambo's field goal as time expires lifts Bolts over Browns

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- San Diego Chargers rookie Josh Lambo pushed a 39-yard field-goal attempt wide right with 2 seconds left and the Cleveland Browns jumped up and down, thinking they'd forced overtime. Not so quick, fellas. Cleveland's Tramon Williams was whistled for offside, giving Lambo another chance. He sent a 34-yarder through the uprights, his third of the game, to lift Philip...

Cleveland Browns at San Diego Chargers: 2015 Week 4 NFL Pick

Cleveland Browns (1-2) at San Diego Chargers (1-2) The Chargers are 1-2, but their losses both came on the road against Cincinnati and Minnesota, a pair of solid teams.

**** Norv 2

There wasn’t as much “Norv beat the Chargers” talk as I feared after Sunday’s game.  I did respond to a Tweet I saw by Merriman suggesting that Norv was doing a great job against his old team.  Norv had nothing to with that game.  No one has ever disputed that he’s a good coordinator.  He’s just a ****** coach.  The same can be said for Wade Phillips (who is once...

Chargers could be missing four starting offensive linemen in Week 4

Don’t expect that trend to be reversed on Sunday when the 1-2 Bolts welcome the 1-2 Cleveland Browns to town.

Chargers QB Philip Rivers to challenge struggling Browns defense

The Cleveland Browns defense has had a rough start to the 2015 season, and things don’t figure to get any easier as they get set to square off against Philip Rivers and the Chargers in San Diego. Rivers, the No. 4 overall pick of the 2004 draft, isn’t quite in the super-duper-top tier of quarterbacks like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, but he has been among the league’s best...
