Vincent Jackson will be in the well. the running game is controlled,who knows how Rex pulled off that trick, after losing KJ. I'm impressed beyond belief.

We have the best D left in the playoffs, but who stops gates. Especially when we bring the house. That's a matchup problem.

Then again to have the #1 defense with Pouha starting, i'm never surprised anymore.

Gates? I'll telll you what to to with Gates. What you've got to do is cut the hamstring on the back of his leg right at the bottom.

He'll never play football again because his weight displacement goes back all his weight is on his right foot and he'll push everything off to the right.

He'll never come through on anything. He'll quit the game.

He'll have to give up football, but on his death bed he will receive total consciousness.

they will more than likely try some type of bracket coverage on Gates and will probably give a lot of responsibility to....Rhodes ugh

That clown can't be the primary reason for a loss Sunday. Rex has to change the coverage if it isn't stopping Gates.

Ravens Beat Chargers 31-26

A game that seemingly was going to be decided by Philip Rivers instead was sealed by Ray Lewis.

The star linebacker met Darren Sproles head-on on fourth-and-2 in the closing seconds. Brute strength won out over speed and shiftiness, and Lewis' big play saved a 31-26 win for the Baltimore Ravens over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.

"That was probably one of the greatest plays of my career because of my team, because of what we did as a team," said Lewis, a former Super Bowl MVP, 10-time Pro Bowler and two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

The Chargers needed a touchdown to win and had the ball on Baltimore's 15 with 33 seconds left. Lewis came in unblocked and slammed the little running back to the ground for a 5-yard loss, and the Ravens (2-0) ran out the clock.

The Chargers ran the play earlier, but Lewis missed making the tackle. Knowing the consequences of letting the Chargers convert, Lewis said he needed to shoot the gap -- and find the ball carrier.

"When the game was on the line, as soon as Philip dropped down, I shot and he was there. He was there, man," Lewis said.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said the Chargers know how to win games at the end.

"I guess Ray Lewis knows a little more, he knows a little better," Harbaugh said. "He made the greatest football play I've ever seen."

Rivers almost single-handedly kept the short-handed Chargers (1-1) in the game, throwing for a career-high 436 yards and two touchdowns. But he also had two interceptions, and San Diego had to settle for field goals four times when it had the ball at the Ravens 10 or closer.

Rivers said the Chargers ran the play they felt gave them the best chance for a first down.

"You can't keep throwing it, throwing it and throwing it -- well, you can," Rivers said. "It was a play that we didn't execute. It's tough to end that way."

Rivers tied Hall of Famer Dan Fouts for third-most passing yards in a game.

A week after amassing a franchise-record 501 yards in a win against Kansas City, the Ravens couldn't quite put away the Chargers. San Diego was missing running back LaDainian Tomlinson, enter Nick Hardwick and right guard Louis Vasquez due to injuries, and on Saturday put defensive tackle Jamal Williams on injured reserve, meaning his season is over.

Baltimore's Joe Flacco threw two touchdown passes, and Willis McGahee ran for two more.

The killers for the Chargers were their inability to score touchdowns and a bad decision by Rivers.

The Chargers got to the Ravens 5, 2 and 1 in the first half, and settled for field goals by Kaeding each time. Trailing 21-13, the Chargers got to the 1-yard line on a 24-yard pass from Rivers to Vincent Jackson. The play was upheld by replay, and the Chargers were called for delay of game. Rivers threw two incompletions, and coach Norv Turner's decision to kick on third down with 10 seconds left drew plenty of boos.

Kaeding made the 23-yarder to pull to 21-16. He also had kicks of 29 and 22 yards.

It happened again midway through the fourth quarter, after Flacco was hit by Shawne Merriman and intercepted by Antoine Cason. The Chargers moved to the Ravens 10, bogged down -- including another delay penalty -- and got a 25-yard field goal from Kaeding to make it 28-26.

"They pressure down there so you're trying to sort things out of how to block," Rivers said. "They brought as many as they could bring on some of them. I think it was more a lack of execution than anything, and those delays that killed us."

Baltimore's Steve Hauschka kicked a 33-yarder with 2:54 left. One of Rivers' TD passes was an 81-yarder to Sproles in the first quarter.

A week after throwing for a career-high 307 yards, Flacco was 17 of 26 for 190 yards.

At least he's got that going for him.

Cover him, if he has the football tackle him. If he is so inclined to put the football on the floor for us. Thank him for his kindness and run it in for the score.

LOL - I was going to go this same route since there has been a thread on this topic already.

Has any TE had a big game against us this year? I don't have time to check and don't remember off the top of my head. I know Fasano had a big TD against us in the first match but he didn't do **** all in the second. Gonzalez had one as well but other then that I'm not sure.

Gonzales was the difference maker, but he really didn't have that big of a day. 3 catches for 32 yards and a TD.

Unfortunately, because of our offensive ineptitude, the TD was the game winner. But, I'd sign up for those numbers from Gates right now.

Switch off between Rhodes and Harris, utilize their strengths and make Gates constantly switch up what he's forced to do in order to get open. Jam him up at the line and get him off his usual tempo. Nothing we haven't done with 1,000 other TE's this year.

this..

i'm more worried about sproles sneaking out into the flat or underneath routes though..

That, and Lowery's health. Any word on what his status is? Jets need him specifically to be 100% in the worst way for this game. He's been really, really good in these types of matchups. My biggest fear going into Sunday is having to rely on Sheppard and Coleman too heavily and Rivers exploiting the heck out of it. These are exactly the type of receivers that Lito can't cover at all.
