Chargers vs. Kansas City Chiefs: How they match up

CHARGERS (0-2) VS. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (2-0) When Chargers have the ball It’s a little baffling that the Chargers have been unable to get Melvin Gordon and the rushing attack into a rhythm through the first two games, considering coach Anthony Lynn’s pedigree. Against Miami, the Chargers took

For UCLA, it’s Love and loss at Stanford

It was more of the same in a series that seems stuck on repeat. UCLA had some momentum and some hope against Stanford. Then things fell apart in a big way. Crucial mistakes by Bruins receivers and a badly faltering defense were at the center of the lat…

UCLA announcer Josh Lewin still has hectic schedule, even without Chargers

Josh Lewin has Sundays off now. Well, unless he’s calling a game involving UCLA. Or the New York Mets. The Bruins opened their season against Texas A&M on a Sunday and Lewin tries to make it to every Mets game he can during fall Sundays whenever UCLA’s schedule allows. But there will be no more

With Ronald Jones II out, Stephen Carr gets plenty of touches, and he loves it

A USC staffer knocked on the hotel room door of running back Stephen Carr at 10 p.m. Friday night to make a bed check. Carr reported in, went to his mattress and promptly fell asleep. “I slept pretty good,” Carr said with a shrug. The first start of the freshman running back’s career would come

West Coast wins Pennsylvania Derby easily; Irap breaks down after race

Trainer Bob Baffert refers to Mike Smith as “Big Money Mike” for the Hall of Fame jockey’s uncanny ability to deliver one smart ride after another when purse money and pressure are equally as great. After Smith threw in a rare clunker in the $1-million Cotillion Stakes on Saturday at Parx Racing,

Sammy Watkins filled a void in Rams’ offense and has drawn comparisons to DeSean Jackson

The missing piece did not arrive until training camp, and it came via a trade that made NFL observers take notice. First-year Rams coach Sean McVay had gained a reputation as an up-and-coming offensive guru with the Washington Redskins, but one who ach…

Despite his age, Larry Nance Jr. is taking leadership role with Lakers

At the casual suggestion of the Lakers coaches, forward Larry Nance Jr. took some initiative this summer. Paintball would help break the ice, he thought, so he gathered the team’s rookies and his sidekick, second-year center Ivica Zubac, for some bonding. “It’s one of those things that are really

A healthy Giancarlo Stanton ignites talk of chasing the home run record

There is a fanciful notion that legitimacy is conferred by a line in the record book, as black and white as the type on the page or the line on the screen. Legitimacy is in the eye of the beholder. You can read that Barry Bonds holds the legitimate hom…

The NFL is always full of surprises, and 2017 has provided plenty

Football is a game of misdirection, so we can’t always believe our eyes. It’s only Week 3 of the NFL season, so we’re still going to see a lot of developments that seem like trends but turn out to be hiccups. Lots of false starts, if you will. Still, there are some surprises in this young

Three up, three down: Joey Votto and Alcides Escobar are the MLB’s iron men

A look at what’s trending in MLB: THREE UP Iron men: There are two players who have started every game this year — curiously, the one with the highest on-base-plus-slugging percentage and the one with the lowest OPS, among the 86 players with at least 500 at-bats through Friday. The OPS leader: first

No Ronald Jones II or Steven Mitchell Jr. for USC in warmups

The big pregame development for USC is the absence of two of its best offensive players, at least in warmups: running back Ronald Jones II and receiver Steven Mitchell Jr. Jones, who has a thigh contusion, has not practiced this week. If he is a scratc…

Chargers put their confidence in kicker Yunghoe Koo in hopes it will help push the turnaround

The phone rang at Michael Husted’s home in late October 1997, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker thought he knew what it meant. Problems in his personal life — his mother was dying of cancer — started to follow him onto the field when he’d pace the three steps back and two steps left before

Loyola spoils the party in win at Notre Dame

Jacob McBride, 5 feet 6, 170 pounds, is an outside linebacker for Los Angeles Loyola. Walking around campus, you’d never guess he plays football. “I try to wear tight fitting shirts to look bigger,” he said with a chuckle. McBride is one of the unsung players who has helped Loyola win four of its
