On Monday Night Los Angeles overwhelms the Raiders, until now undefeated, thanks to its young quarterbrack. Here is the balance of the fourth day of football
Los Angeles counts again in football. The Chargers overwhelm the hitherto unbeaten Las Vegas Raiders 28-14 on Monday Night that closes the fourth day of the NFL and join the Rams as legitimate contenders for a long playoff journey. Justin Herbert, 23, enchants: he is the best young quarterback around.
At Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium, which will host Super Bowl 2022, the Chargers flex their muscles. They go up 3-1 as a season record, taking the lead of Afc West, tough Division. Right in front of the Raiders, who brought their home (in Oakland) to California in the recent past, an immaculate record, 3-0. Las Vegas was wiped out 21-0 in the first half, found the mental strength to get back into the game by scoring 2 tries in the 3rd quarter, taking possession to distance, but was unable to complete the comeback. The count of total yards, 380 to 213, and first downs, 25 to 13, describes the superiority of the Chargers. Herbert pitched for 3 touchdowns, making Parham, Cook and Ekeler happy in the end zones, two tight ends and a running back. The running game balanced the aerial one: 168 yards ground on the ground, 117 for Ekeler. The defense was not watching: 4 sacks, with Bosa scarecrow, and an interception, that of James who closed the game. The Raiders remain to be monitored: Waller, Renfrow and Ruggs form an intriguing target group for Carr. Jacobs has returned. Coach Gruden knows that this is the season in which we must finally proceed to cash, after having invested so much. Both in the Division will have to deal with the Chiefs, however. Uncomfortable customers for everyone.
UNIQUE UNBEATABLE ARIZONA
Just 4 days of football, yet of the 32 teams in the running only one is still undefeated. The Cardinals boast a 4-0 record embellished by success at the Rams home, yet they were pardoned by the Vikings and struggled with Jacksonville. The impression is that the big names have not yet fixed the carburetor. The season is long and it will count to be in shape from Christmas onwards for those aiming for the Super Bowl, with the shortened preseason many teams are still running in. In Arizona they thank: NFC West is the best Division in America, without teams with losing records. And Murray and Kingsbury are happy to have taken that meter of advantage at the start that could be decisive in the playoff perspective.
I RECORD DI BRADY
On “his” field, Gillette Stadium, he took the victory as a former (applauded) against the New England Patriots and the record of yards thrown every era. Drew Brees had stopped at 80.358, he climbed into the stratosphere, at 80.560. To beat the rain, Coach Belichick’s emotion and defense also needed a bit of luck. Folk hit the post on the field goal of the possible overtaking Pats with 55 ”from the end, but Tampa, decimated by injuries, nailed a precious, proud success, after the ruinous tumble against the Rams.
THE BALTIMORE RECORDS
Much more discussed and debatable. Coach Harbaugh, with an unexpected and controversial move, made Lamar Jackson run on the last action of the race, a game swept by the Ravens in Denver against the Broncos, to cross the 100 yards of team on the run, take the consecutive series beyond that threshold. to 43 games and equal the record of the Pittsburgh Steelers of the 1970s. Broncos coach Fangio, livid with rage, told his opponents everything first on the pitch and then after the match at a press conference, accusing Harbaugh of lack of sportsmanship and endangering the health of the players to chase records.
PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
In attack Tyrekee Hill, the electric receiver from Kansas City capable of accumulating 186 yards and 3 touchdown tricks against Philadelphia. For the defense Trevon Diggs, a cornerback from Dallas who intercepted Darnold twice against Carolina, bringing the season’s interceptions to 5 in 4 games.
