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

Chargers hold Cowboys scoreless in first half for first time in 18 years on Thanksgiving

"I do. Now we all know that it has to get better, has to get together".

That said, take a look at three takeaways for the 'Bolts in their game against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving day.

The Cowboys need help at the linebacker position desperately.

They've now scored fewer than 10 points in three consecutive regular season games for the first time in the team's history. His ability to adjust to the pressures Dallas was attempting to bring was outstanding pre-snap, but it was what he did after the ball got into his hands that was truly special Sunday. Jones had six catches for 109 yards and two TDs. We can be a good team.

What's the NFL to do? He's three feet away from the daggum net!

The Chargers* had been underachieving, a point belabored under this byline dating to the season opener.

That's not even a chip shot, it's a tap in, a lay up. The pass rush is terrifying and the offense is cooking with napalm. The others are JaMarcus Russell, Brady Quinn and Mettenberger.

It's not just Rivers that makes this Chargers team so scary. It doesn't have to be that way.

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.

The defensive struggles have been just as worrisome. Based on Jones's comments Thursday, Garrett seems safe, but what happens after the Cowboys miss the playoffs for the fifth time in his tenure?

The passing game is a mess.

The Cowboys have desperately missed left tackle Tyron Smith during their two-game skid.

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers played arguably one of the best games of his hall of fame worthy NFL career.

On the season, Prescott has been intercepted nine times. It's also dangerous for Garrett. Prescott said. "I've gone seasons without that many". That player so far has not turned out to be Bryant, or quarterback Dak Prescott.

With back-to-back wins in less than a week, the Chargers climbed right back into the AFC Wild Card hunt.

The deadline to flex out the Cowboys-Raiders is Dec. 5, just five days after Washington (5-6) visits the Cowboys (5-6).

Xavier Rhodes ended Detroit's comeback hopes with an interception at the Detroit 37 late in the game. I really think this coaching staff is tops. We got some success but we weren't able to convert those third downs to keep those drives alive. We all knew that the Cowboys had been struggling on defense, but I don't think any of us thought the veteran gun-slinger would throw for over 400 yards on Thursday afternoon. The Lions were held to a total of 53 yards rushing.

"He's our future", Jones said. "That's what is great about this game".
