SAN DIEGO: New head coach Mike McCoy oversaw more of a one-cut running scheme in Denver, but he'll probably adapt to the power personnel he has. He rotated a stable of backs with the Broncos, and it looks like a similar situation in San Diego. The perennially disappointing Ryan Mathews will take the bulk of the early down reps, but he'll be spelled early and often. Danny Woodhead will take most passing downs and get some take-what-they-give-you runs when teams send out extra defensive backs. Ronnie Brown's only real value is as a pass protector, and Le'Ron McClain will be primarily a lead blocker again. McCoy and new offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt both have a background based more in the vertical passing game, so the Chargers air attack shouldn't change much. Philip Rivers is at his best getting the ball deep up the seam, and Danario Alexander and Malcom Floyd should continue to see a lot of work there. McCoy plans on being more creative with Antonio Gates, who will continue to line up in a number of spots as a flex tight end. They will likely use either Eddie Royal or rookie Keenan Allen in the slot, though Rivers doesn't use slot receivers much. McCoy and Whisenhunt historically like to keep the ball on the ground in the red zone, and Mathews should get goal-line carries. The Chargers had seven defensive touchdowns last year, but in effort to generate more pressure (two sacks or less in 11 games in 2012), DE Dwight Freeney (107.5 career sacks) was signed. Bigger sack numbers are also expected from third-year pro DE Corey Liuget (7 sacks). But having the NFL's second-easiest schedule, plus adding shutdown CB Derek Cox and rookie LB Manti Te'o to incumbent standouts FS Eric Weddle and ILB Donald Butler makes defensive coordinator John Pagano's 3-4 scheme one to respect.
WASHINGTON: Only Seattle was more run-heavy than the Redskins last season, and even when he didn't keep it, everything they did was based on Robert Griffin III. It's head coach Mike Shanahan's classic zone blocking up front in the running game, but with the added threat of Griffin keeping and rolling out each time. It adds another dimension to an already excellent running scheme. Alfred Morris is a three-down workhorse and will take the overwhelming majority of the reps again. Evan Royster and Roy Helu will battle for the scraps, with Royster's versatility giving him an edge. The passing game works off the running game, using a lot of play-action and rollouts for Griffin. Pierre Garcon is the closest thing to a No. 1 receiver, getting a lot of catch-and-run and crossing opportunities, and getting a fair share of bubble screens as well. They use three receivers often, with Josh Morgan staying in the lineup because he blocks so well. He'll get only a handful of catches as a possession receiver. Leonard Hankerson will push Santana Moss for third receiver reps. While H-back Fred Davis is close to a No. 2 receiver, the backs are rarely used to catch passes. The Redskins remain run-heavy in the red zone, with RGIII running outside the pocket or Morris pounding between the tackles. Because the Redskins stuffed the run so effectively (96 YPG allowed, 5th in NFL), opponents chose to throw on them more than any NFL team (39.7 attempts per game) and piled up serious yardage. Rookie CB David Amerson and former Bucs CB E.J. Biggers should help the overworked secondary. Six different defenders scored touchdowns last year, but DE/OLB Ryan Kerrigan (8 sacks) was the only player with at least five sacks. Ageless ILB London Fletcher, 38, is still productive, and OLB Brian Orakpo is now healthy.

*Chargers-Redskins Preview* ===========================


Philip Rivers' revival has him again performing like one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

Robert Griffin III doesn't look to be anywhere close to approaching that lofty level.

Rivers and the San Diego Chargers emerge from a bye in search of their first three-game winning streak in almost two years Sunday when they visit Griffin and the struggling Washington Redskins.

The Chargers (4-3) have missed the playoffs the last three seasons, and Rivers shouldered much of the blame in the last two, throwing 35 interceptions and posting a pair of passer ratings under 90 after three straight years over 100.

Rivers is back among the elite in 2013, leading the NFL with a 73.9 completion percentage while ranking second with a 111.1 rating. He's also tossed 15 TDs to just five picks, three of which came in a 27-17 loss at Oakland in Week 5.

He hasn't thrown an interception since while leading San Diego to back-to-back wins. Rivers has connected on 44 of 59 passes for 522 yards with two scores, putting the Chargers on the brink of their first three-game winning streak since Dec. 5-18, 2011.

Rivers also is a big reason the offense ranks fourth in the league with 402.9 yards per game.

"He's been tremendous," general manager Tom Telesco told the team's official website. "I always said when your quarterback is the hardest-working player on your team, everything else falls into place. He's certainly one of those. He's a leader for us. His passion for football is off the charts.

"I can't ask for anything more than what he's done. Players follow him. He's our guy and it's fun having him as our quarterback."

The Redskins (2-5) aren't having nearly as much fun lately being led by Griffin, who has completed 59.0 percent of his passes with nine touchdowns, eight interceptions and a 79.2 rating.

He struggled again in last week's 45-21 loss at Denver, converting half of his 30 passes for a season-low 132 yards with one TD and two picks. His longest completion went for just 17 yards as he continues to have trouble building on last season's success with deep passes.

Last year, Griffin went 15 for 39 with seven touchdowns, one pick and a 115.1 rating on passes that traveled at least 21 yards through the air. He hasn't come close to being that effective in 2013, going 5 for 24 on such throws with two scores and three INTs for a 43.1 rating.

"Robert was new to the league," wide receiver Santana Moss said, "and lot of things that he did wowed people because they didn't know what the (heck) was going on. They didn't know if he was going to tuck it, if he was going to run it, they didn't know. Defenses would sit back and say, 'Hey, we got to find a way to prevent him from doing that.'

"When he's on doing that, then everything's wide open because you don't know what to stop. But when he's not, then we have to be a little more creative and say 'Hey, let's find a way to beat them without running Robert and doing the things that we did last year.'"

The Redskins may need to find some different solutions against the Chargers, who haven't allowed a touchdown in 11 consecutive quarters. The defense also has held opponents to an average of 309.5 yards in the past four games after giving up 470.7 per game over the first three.

"It's a matter of how quickly you can clean up your mistakes and not make the same mistakes," first-year coach Mike McCoy said. "That is a sign of a good football team and that is what we are doing right now."

The Redskins haven't done much of that, totaling 15 turnovers after committing five last week.

They're also still trying to find a reliable secondary receiver opposite Pierre Garcon, who hasn't reached the end zone for three straight games.

"I think we do have a second guy. Who that guy is right now, I'm not sure," coach Mike Shanahan said. "We've got to have a guy step up. We've got guys with the ability to be No. 2, but you want to take control."

Rookie Jordan Reed may be the likeliest option after catching 17 passes for 224 yards and a touchdown over the last two games.

Washington is expected to welcome Brandon Meriweather back after he was suspended for one game for multiple helmet-first hits on defenseless receivers.

The controversial safety made himself the center of attention again this week by claiming he'll need a new approach.

"I guess I've just got to take people's knees out," he said.

San Diego has won three straight versus Washington since a loss in the nation's capital on Dec. 6, 1998.
