Yes, the Los Angeles Chargers are for real — AFC West

Whether it was a blown coverage, a jump ball or a third-and-short situation, Rod Marinelli's defense just could not get stops when it mattered most.

And let's not sleep on the Cowboys here either: they have played a team that lost a kicker to injury for two straight weeks (Eagles kicker Jake Elliott also went down in Week 11) and haven't managed to benefit at all from it. That may be a product of the Cowboys' season circling the drain as we speak.

At 5-6, the Cowboys trail NFC East-leading Philadelphia by 4 1/2 games and will need a serious rally over the final month of the season to catch wild-card contenders, including the Panthers, Falcons and Seahawks.

Press the pencil lightly, and bear in mind that injuries can derail any NFL team, and duly note that the lightning-bolt club just might "Chargers" itself.

While Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram get a lot of credit for their role in the defense's surge, Hayward is every bit as responsible.

And still, Jones believes. "We all know it shouldn't be".

But he's still optimistic that the team can turn it around. "So we've got to adjust again".

Fast forward to Week 12, the Chargers are in the hunt for the playoffs after an impressive win over the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day. The others are JaMarcus Russell, Brady Quinn and Mettenberger. With the Cowboys offense struggling to find traction, Jones was asked to punt the ball away five times and minimize the opportunity for the Chargers offense. "It's not fun to be in".

The run game has not been as prolific as it was with Elliott, but it has not been terrible.

What would a Chargers* game be without comic relief from the kick team? He completed 27 of 33 passes for 434 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. In the past two games, he has more interceptions (five) than he had all of 2016.

For Rivers, it was a dazzling Thanksgiving, by golly. No lie, it was a struggle to come up with something positive to say, and even more of a struggle to narrow down the latter two categories. Prescott said. "I've gone seasons without that many". "I look at our schedule, I look at where we are with our talent". A pass rush that started out the season looking like one of the league's best didn't land a single sack on Rivers all day. Prescott appeared to be pressing too much to make plays, an understandable reaction when playing from behind as the Cowboys so often have been lately, and without the security of a running back like Elliott.

As for the Chargers* defense, it maintained its roll.

Last year, with a dominant line and Elliott getting things done on the ground, the Cowboys were able to control the clock and rely on the defense to do just enough. "We weren't able to sustain things throughout the ballgame". The playoff race in the NFC is a tight one.

With the team having scored fewer than 10 points in each game during its three-game losing streak, we're starting to hear some rumblings that Jason Garrett should lose his job. People were sort of freaking out too.

While some want to question Prescott, Jones is not abandoning him in this difficult time.
