The Los Angeles Chargers have gone from an 0-4 start to now winning three consecutive games with the latest being a moral victory against the winless Cleveland Browns. The Los Angeles football club is now positioned atop the AFC West in a three-way tie with the Kansas City Chiefs and the Oakland Raiders.
“To be in this position doesn’t surprise me at all,” said Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn.”Guys have worked hard and they’re committed to the process. They never stopped believing.”
One of the players Lynn highlighted was cornerback Casey Hayward who spent the week away from the team after his brother was killed in a car accident on Monday (Nov. 27) night. Hayward rejoined his teammates for one day of practice just in time to play in Sunday’s matchup against the Browns.
The Los Angeles Chargers have now won four consecutive games with the 30-12 victory over the Washington Redskins at StubHub Center on Sunday, Dec. 12. The Los Angeles football team demonstrated dominance in all three phases and now sit above .500 for the first time in nearly two years (Sept. 2015).
“I think it’s been night and day when you look at the first quarter of the season even the second quarter, we were being dominated,” said Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn.
On the Chargers opening drive, Travis Coons made a 33-yard field goal. The following drive Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers orchestrated a 92-yard drive that ended in a touchdown pass to tight end Hunter Henry.
Jacksonville Jaguar’s linebacker Hayes Pullard hosted his 2nd Annual Youth Football Camp at his alma mater Crenshaw High School in Los Angeles. Pullard invited campers ages 8-18 years old to enjoy a free football training camp. An abundance of NFL associates and college teammates volunteered their time to inspire campers and help with the camp including Los Angeles Ram’s safety TJ McDonald, teammate at USC and on the Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee and Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson to name a few. The camp even garnered sponsorship from the Los Angeles Lakers who provided campers with SWAG.
