The Los Angeles Chargers woke up to overcast skies Antworten , brisk temperatures and light rain falling outside their downtown hotel.It was far from a picturesque Monday in Cleveland, but wide receiver Tyrell Williams found beauty in the classic fall conditions."There's really no other place I'd rather be," the fourth-year pro said. "I'm just having fun. It's a cool experience."We're on a road trip, we get to go to London and we play in the NFL. So if you've got complaints with that, you've got something wrong with you."Williams and the Chargers made themselves right at home on the road Sunday, blowing out the Browns 38-14 for their third straight victory.Instead of flying back to the West Coast following the win, they will spend four more days in Northeast Ohio, preparing for their Sunday game against the Titans at Wembley Stadium in England.Los Angeles' team plane won't touch down in California again until the early hours of Oct. 22."Being on the road for two weeks, it's kind of cool, like this whole gladiator mentality," said nose tackle Damion Square, who had 1陆 sacks of Cleveland rookie Baker Mayfield. "You've got to move on the run and we've got things to do, but we've still got business to handle."Williams caught a pair of touchdown passes and Melvin Gordon had a career-high three rushing scores against the Browns Joey Bosa Jersey , keeping Los Angeles as the only NFL team with three or more offensive TDs in every game this season.Philip Rivers has 15 touchdowns to three interceptions, ranks second in the league with a 115.1 passer rating and is the main reason why the Chargers are 4-2. The only AFC team with a better record is Kansas City at 5-1."People see that we ran for 246 yards yesterday, but Philip is a big part of that process," Los Angeles coach Anthony Lynn said. "First of all, he threw a number of big passes and he got us in most of those runs. Philip is a quarterback that can get you in the right front for the runs, and he does a heck of a job in the run game."The 36-year-old Rivers and his teammates won't return to the practice field until Wednesday, but took part in mandatory morning meetings before breaking off into position groups.More than a dozen players plan on using their day off to visit the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton (an hour drive to the south), while others intend to explore the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (a mile walk to the north).Lynn promises that the Chargers will do much more sightseeing in London later in the week."This can be a galvanizing experience for our football team," the coach said. "We're a pretty tight group, but it can definitely bring a team together even more."I'll give you an example. I went out to have a steak last night and I saw all of our guys having dinner there, too. Just eating lunch and hanging out together for an entire week is a real positive thing."Williams noted that staying in five-star hotels with NFL-provided per diems isn't too shabby, either."In college at Western Oregon, we always had long road trips Authentic Austin Ekeler Jersey , like a 28-hour bus ride to Utah and a 24-hour bus trip to Los Angeles," he said, breaking into a smile. "I know it takes a while to get to London, but this is a little better now." A 2-2 record after the first quarter of the season is not where Philip Rivers thought the Los Angeles Chargers would be, but it is a vast improvement compared to the past couple seasons.The Chargers got to .500 with a 29-27 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. It is the first time since 2015 they are even after four games and better than their 0-4 start to last season.If the Chargers are going to start stringing together wins, the next two weeks present a prime opportunity. They host Oakland (1-3) next Sunday and then are at Cleveland (1-2-1) on Oct. 14. The Chargers then have an Oct. 21 game at London against Tennessee (3-1) before their bye week.For a team that won six of its final nine games last season, the Chargers know that they need to position themselves well before November to make a run for their first postseason berth since 2013."We've got to go. We can't keep going win for loss the whole way there. We know what that does — that usually leaves you on the outside looking in," said Rivers, who was 25 of 39 for 250 yards with three TD passes and an interception. "Now we have a chance to win two in a row next week with the Raiders coming in."Rivers did end up reaching a couple milestones in Sunday's game. It marked the 200th game of his career and he passed John Elway for the eighth-most passing yards in NFL history. Rivers has 51,504 yards in 15 seasons.Coach Anthony Lynn and Rivers have talked all year about the versatility of the offense, and they showed it off on Sunday. Rivers completed passes to eight players while running backs Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler averaged 5.6 yards per carry against a Niners defense that was 10th against the run and allowing only 97 yards per game."I think last year when we were rolling, we were balanced. We've been that this year for the most part," said Rivers who has thrown for three or more touchdowns in five of the past six games.BEATHARD MAKES STRIDESSan Francisco's C.J. Beathard showed improvement from his rookie season. The second-year quarterback was 23 of 37 for 298 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. His 82.9 passer rating is his second highest in six career starts."I felt a lot more comfortable being out there in control. I definitely felt a lot more comfortable than last year Youth Darius Philon Jersey ," he said.Beathard's best throw of the day came on an 82-yard touchdown to George Kittle, where he found a wide open Kittle at the at the Niners' 40. Kittle, who was also a teammate of Beathard's at Iowa, caught it in stride and was able to outrun Chargers' defenders to the end zone.GROUND GORDON: Most of Gordon's big plays the first three games were as a receiver, but he had his first 100-yard rushing game of the season on Sunday with 104 yards on 15 carries. He had two carries of 15 yards or more, including a 34-yarder to the San Francisco 4 during the fourth quarter that helped set up Sturgis' go-ahead field goal."I think I had some good blocks, made some guys miss and guys kind of got lazy on the tackles, and you got to make them pay for it," Gordon said.It is the sixth 100-yard rushing game of Gordon's career and his first since last Oct. 29 against New England.GROUNDED: It was a bad day for San Francisco's running game and its run defense. Matt Breida came in tied for the league lead in rushing but he was held to 39 yards on nine carries.The defense was 10th against the run and allowing only 97 yards per game but allowed a 100-yard rusher for the first time in 11 games.KICKING WOES: Sturgis made three field goals, but he also missed two extra points and a 54-yard field goal attempt. Lynn wasn't immediately saying that Sturgis' job is in danger, but it wouldn't be a surprise if the team brought in kickers for tryouts this week.The Chargers have missed eight PATs since the start of last season, which is the most in the league.TACKLE TROUBLES? The starting left tackles for both teams ended up getting injured during the first half and did not return. San Francisco's Joe Staley suffered a knee injury midway through the second quarter and Los Angeles' Russell Okung strained a groin on the last offensive play of the first half.Follow Joe Reedy at joereedy
