Result Last Week: Took out frustration in the win over the Jaguars in San Diego, but lost rookie Ryan Mathews to an ankle injury.
This Week: Travel to Seattle to face the Seahawks (1-1) in hopes of avoiding another devastating road loss early in the season.
Why They Are Ranked No. 11: Philip Rivers struggled in the season opener against the Chiefs, but seemed to find his way against the Jaguars defense in Sunday's win by throwing for 334 yards. San Diego's defense won't be great this season, but should be good enough to get the job done if the offense can produce.
Why They Are Rising: The Chargers have the most talented team in the AFC West, even without Marcus McNeill, Vincent Jackson, and possibly Mathews.
Prediction For Week 3: San Diego takes a lesson from the 49ers and comes ready to play Sunday in Seattle. The Chargers win in a close game.
