This current Los Angeles Chargers team is better than the one that started the season. Melvin Gordon was missing because of a holdout and Melvin Ingram was out of action with a hamstring injury. But now the Chargers are getting their pieces back and it’s giving them some optimism with seven games remaining.
That couldn’t be more obvious than it was against the Green Bay Packers. Gordon is starting to get back in game shape and he rushed for 80 yards and 2 touchdowns against the Pack. With each rep Gordon seems to look a little more like the player he once was. You could see that against Green Bay when he hurdled a defender. Let’s be honest Gordon’s athleticism is incredible and he was such a big factor in this team’s win yesterday. Los Angeles is also improving because of Mike Williams who had over 100 receiving yards. So all of these athletes are peaking at the right time and it makes Los Angeles very dangerous from here on out. If Gordon and the rest of these guys can heat up from now until when Derwin James returns then look out. If everything goes right the Chargers could climb back into the playoffs and then go on a deep run.

There’s no doubt about it. The Los Angeles Chargers are a much better team with Melvin Gordon.
