Amari Cooper on slow start: 'The ball will find me'

12 Octubre 2017

"They lost their last two after winning their first two". "We expected to have a different start these first five games". Under Gus Bradley, he's lining up with his hand on the ground and he's ranked second in the NFL with 7 1/2 sacks.

"When you fall to 2-2, you have to get things going", Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace said. "When something like that happens and then someone tells you what it really is, you just sit there and think you're fortunate, you're blessed".

"My heart really goes out to the families", quarterback Derek Carr said.

That's a luxury that Jack Del Rio's team likely won't have Sunday. While Derek Carr's back injury hasn't helped, Cooper's lack of production has been an issue as well. Defensively, Oakland is allowing 21.8 points and 351.2 yards per game. Keenan Allen and Tyrell Williams have combined for 661 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Travis Benjamin has 13 receptions. During Oakland's three-game losing streak, blitzes have been very effective against the Raiders' quarterbacks. Philip Rivers is completing 59.8 percent of his passes for 1,365 yards, nine touchdowns and five interceptions. Rivers completed less than half of his 44 attempts for 258 yards and threw one interception.

"(He's) a rangy athlete that can make some crazy plays on the ball", Bosa said.

It will be incumbent on left tackle Donald Penn and right tackle Marshall Newhouse to be prepared for both styles, whether it's Bosa as a non-stop brawler or Ingram as a more elusive speed rusher. Tight end Lee Smith (knee) and fullback Jamize Olawale (concussion), two players who would assume those kinds of responsibilities, did not practice Wednesday. "Just like everybody in the NFL right now". Manuel was sacked 3 times. "The Beast Quake" was famously imposed on a weak New Orleans defense, earning Lynch the nickname "Beast Mode", as he knocked down defensive backs like bowling pins en route to a score and unprecedented upset of the favored Saints.

With a trip to Oakland on the horizon, the Chargers could completely turn their season around. The stoppable force of the Raiders rushing attack will meet the movable object that is the Chargers run defense next weekend.
