The 4-3 San Diego Chargers are chewing up the the 2013 NFL schedule of late while the Washington Redskins are miraculously still not out in their division despite a poor 2-5 record. Either the Chargers will affirm their winning ways or the Redskins take a baby step up the NFC East standings in week 9 when we watch San Diego Chargers vs Washington Redskins game online free live streaming football on CBS by following the links presented below.
For the first time in the past four seasons, Chargers starting quarterback Philip Rivers is playing up to his potential and what his fans and team expect from him. He has completed 73.9 percent of his passes, second to none in the league, and his 111.1 quarterback rating is behind only Peyton Manning. Unlike year’s past where interceptions haunted him, Phillips has tossed only five this season versus 15 touchdowns, and three picks came in the same game.
Digging a little deeper in Rivers’ resurgence, he hasn’t thrown an interception since the trio against the Raiders back in week 5. Over the past two games, Rivers has thrown for 522 total yards and a pair of touchdown passes. His GM is behind him, his coach is behind him, and for the first time in awhile there’s cause for optimism in San Diego that they can finally make a trip to the playoffs.
The Redskins tasted the postseason last year but have been a shell of that team this season. Quarterback Robert Griffin III (RG3) hasn’t been the same since returning from his ACL injury suffered in the playoffs. Last week was more evidence of a struggling RG3 as he completed only half of his passes and threw for a measly 132 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. As has been the theme all season, RG3 hasn’t been able to connect with his receivers on long passes down the field.
Now Griffin III, running back Alfred Morris and the rest of the Redskins offense must find ways to put points on the board against a defense that hasn’t given up a touchdown in nearly three straight games when we watch Chargers vs Redskins online free live streaming today. After a slow start, the Chargers defense has allowed just over 300 yards of offense per game over their past four games. Meanwhile the Redskins defense continues to be one of the poorest in the league after giving up 45 points to the Broncos last week.
The Redskins defense will get a small boost with Brandon Meriweather returning after being suspended last week for drilling receivers with helmet-to-helmet hits. We’ll find out if he learned his lesson or targets Chargers receivers when we watch Chargers vs Redskins live today.
