Falcons vs. Chargers: Instant Grades and Analysis for San Diego's Week 3 Game

The San Diego Chargers laid an egg in their 27-3 loss against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

After a buildup centered on a showdown between two elite quarterbacks, Matt Ryan clearly established his dominance over Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers. The Atlanta quarterback finished the day with 275 yards passing and two touchdowns while Rivers produced just 173 yards passing and two interceptions.

Another disappointing result of Sunday's game was the performance of Ryan Mathews in his regular season debut for the Chargers. The third-year back had 10 carries for 44 yards, but a fumble in the red zone in the first half ruined any chance of the Chargers gaining momentum back in this one. 

Overall, it was just a poor showing for the Chargers in what should have been a close game. San Diego had all the tools to stay with Atlanta, but Ryan's big night put an end to their unbeaten streak.
