The Philadelphia Eagles and the Los Angeles Chargers will clash at the StubHub Center in Carson on Sunday in an important game for both teams in Week 4 of the NFL 2017 regular season. The game has a scheduled start time of 4.05 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on the Fox network, or online through live stream (details below).
This is only the Eagles third road trip to face the Chargers since 1989, and it is their first visit to Southern California since 2009, so this one might appear on the surface a little unpredictable.
However, looking how the teams have fared over the opening three weeks of the season, this should be a solid win for the Eagles. Philadelphia come into the game on 2-1, and hope to claim a third win today to consolidate their hopeful start to the new season.
The Chargers, however, are already facing a must-win game - or as close to one you can get without it being a definitive "must-win" scenario. They are already 0-3, and if they drop to 0-4 then their hopes of qualifying for the postseason this year would become almost zero.
The Chargers must take advantage of being at home today to claim their first win, which they will be hoping can kick-start their season into life.
The Eagles will be hoping quarterback Carson Wentz can get back into form today after struggling badly in last week's game against the New York Giants. The Eagles managed to win, but Wentz only managed to pass for 176 yards, which was a big drop from the 300-plus he had been posting in the opening two games.
Earlier this week, the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears got Week 4 off to a start on NFL Thursday Night Football. However, the contest was not as competitive as most neutrals would have liked, and the Packers eased to a comfortable 35-14 victory.
Packers' quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, threw for four touchdown passes, with two finding Jordy Nelson for touchdowns.
The result moved the Packer to 3-1, which leaves them in a solid position as they look to consolidate their good start to the season over the coming month and ensure they get one hand on a postseason spot as soon as possible.
However, for the Bears the season is quickly slipping away from them, and their third loss of the season sees them drop to 1-3, and it now seems a long way back for them to even get to a level record.
The Packers were in front right from the start in Thursday's game, and quickly jumped out to a 14-0 lead following Aaron Rodgers leading them to an opening drive touchdown.
There was a 45 minute delay in the game due to a lightning strike, however, not even that could shock the Bears into life, and they limply gave up the game to a far superior side.
One major area that the Bears must fix asap is Mike Glennon; things are simply not working. Glennon gave up four turnovers on the night, with two interceptions and two lost fumbles. That simply isn't good enough and there's little hope for the Bears to get a result when they give the ball away so consistently for free. Those four turnovers directly led to 21 of the Packers' points, which shows how costly each was. Now through the opening four games of the season, Glennon has given up eight turnovers; something must be done.
