Chargers vs. Redskins - 1st Half analysis. It’s been more of a defensive game so far and the Redskins have been plagued by freak miscues. And the Chargers have the lead thanks to a tipped ball interception for a touchdown.
- The Redskins defense starts well by getting the Chargers offense of the field early.
- The Redskins offense opened up the game with a long drive, but it ended with a blocked kick, another special teams blunder.
- Rookie TE Jordan Reed looking good again early.
- So far Philip Rivers has been methodical and the Redskins are doing a good job of keeping things in front of them.
- The Chargers defense is doing a good job of keeping Alfred Morris contained.
- The Redskins haven’t been able to get to Rivers early, they need to pick up the pass rush.
- The Redskins offense looks stagnant again. Things are slow developing
- Ryan Matthews is running hard for the Chargers. The Redskins defensive line isn’t having much of an impact so far.
- A freak interception for the Chargers results in a touchdown in the end zone.
- The Redskins are starting to get some pressure on Philip Rivers, as he’s looked uncomfortable on some throws.
- Rivers continues to look a little skittish as he he’s intercepted by E.J.. Biggers.
- The Redskins open things up a little as RGII hits Leonard Hankerson on nice pass. But the passing game still looks passive and not aggressive.
- Alfred Morris is starting to get going, as the Redskins get their running game going.
- Rivers is doing a good job of evading the pass rush. The Redskins lost contain and that’s inexcusable on a non-mobile QB like Rivers.
- The offense still looks passive, and the Redskins seem afraid to pass the ball. Not sure what Kyle Shanahan is waiting on.
- 14-7 Chargers lead.
