Even though it feels like it just started, we are more than halfway through the 2019 season. The San Francisco 49ers are the only remaining undefeated team as the New England Patriots loss on Sunday while the Cincinnati Bengals are the only remaining winless team as the Miami Dolphins got their first win of the season against the New York Jets. Last week’s Thursday night game was closer than many expected between the 49ers and Arizona Cardinals. Hopefully, tonight’s game is similar. In a division matchup between the Los Angles Chargers and Oakland Raiders, as both teams enter tonight’s game needing a win in the tight AFC Wild Card race.
Well here’s to hoping you didn’t lose Saquon Barkley, but if you did don’t feel defeated yet. You aren’t the only one and some of our writers did as well. It’s a painful experience as if you were hurt alongside him, but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.

Green, and other key players return.
Last week was interesting, to say the least. It wasn’t a good week, but it wasn’t a terrible week.

The 2018 season for the Los Angeles Chargers and Head Coach Anthony Lynn was a pleasant surprise. In 2018 the offense and defense clicked, which culminated in a 12-4 record with seven Pro Bowl selections. Despite losing in the divisional round of the playoffs, and the ongoing contract saga of Melvin Gordon (more on that later), expectations for 2019 in Los Angeles are now even higher, with talk of even a possible Super Bowl appearance, which would be the franchise’s first super bowl appearance since 1994.

If you love to watch top-notch scoring and three-point shooting, this game was for you. Stephen Curry led the Golden State Warriors with 42 points, including going 10-20 from behind the arc. Buddy Hield did his best to keep the Sacramento Kings in it, exploding for 32 points and setting a new career high with 8 triples in 13 tries. Justin Jackson set a new career high with 28 points, shooting 10-14 from the field. The Warriors continue their quest to break seemingly every three-point record there is, combining with the Kings to make 41 for the game, a new NBA milestone.
