nts out of the end zone in their first four games.But Los Angeles is hoping that Sunday's 26-10 victory over Oakland signals a change for the rest of the season.The Chargers sacked the Raiders' Derek Carr three times and allowed only one touchdown. They had allowed the fifth-most points in the league and were ranked in the bottom half of the league in sacks and quarterback pressures after the first quarter of the season."A game like that should give them a lot of confidence. Our defense is getting better [url=http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/john-johnson-jersey]Authentic John Johnson Jersey[/url] ," coach Anthony Lynn said Monday.The Chargers (3-2) have not been at full strength defensively all season, but they are starting to get some valuable players back. Defensive tackle Corey Liuget returned from his four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance enhancers, which helped free up the number of times that Melvin Ingram was double-teamed.Ingram, who struggled during the first three games, has played better in the past two. Ingram tied for the team lead in tackles with seven along with a sack and his first regular-season interception.Philip Rivers and the offense converted both Raiders' turnovers into touchdowns."If we can create turnovers and get our offense the ball, we got one of the most high-powered offenses in this league, so we are trying to get them the ball every time we can," Ingram said.Another reason for the Chargers' success against the Raiders was that they were stingy on third down. They came into the Oakland game allowing the fourth-highest conversion rate on third down (46.8 percent), but the Raiders converted just one of six during the first half and four of 11 for the game.One area where the Chargers have done well the first five weeks is stopping the run. Oakland's Marshawn Lynch came into the game fourth in the league in rushing [url=http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/cooper-kupp-jersey]Authentic Cooper Kupp Jersey[/url] , but was held to 31 yards on nine carries.Los Angeles has allowed only 100-yard rusher all season (the Rams' Todd Gurley) despite also facing Kansas City's Kareem Hunt, Buffalo's LeSean McCoy and San Francisco's Matt Breida. Six running backs went over the century mark against the Chargers last season, including Hunt twice.They will face a big challenge this week against Cleveland (2-2-1), which is No. 2 in the league in rushing offense with Carlos Hyde, Nick Chubb and mobile quarterback Baker Mayfield.Lynn said that defensive end Joey Bosa, who has missed all five games because of a foot injury, could practice this week in a limited capacity. Even if Bosa isn't back until after the Oct. 28 bye week, Lynn is seeing his unit make more progress in making plays without Bosa."We're starting to get more comfortable with the different schemes we are doing," Lynn said. "We are doing some different things with coverages and also bringing different people on blitzes."NOTES: Lynn said that Caleb Sturgis will be the kicker against the Browns despite missing his fourth extra point on Sunday. Sturgis is likely to remain the kicker for at least two more games [url=http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/rob-havenstein-jersey]Authentic Rob Havenstein Jersey[/url] , but needs to gain consistency if he is going to keep his job. ... Right tackle Joe Barksdale could return to practice this week but will be limited. Barksdale has missed the past four games after suffering a knee injury in the Sept. 9 opener against Kansas City.Follow Joe Reedy at s://joereedy The Chargers and Rams will meet on the field on Sunday, but both teams are trying to achieve a common goal off it — trying to reignite Los Angeles' passion for the NFL.The progress so far mirrors the tour of the LA Stadium at the Hollywood Park site in Inglewood — a slow build."The wheel is starting to spin faster, and it is heading in the right direction. We understand that it is going to take time," said Chargers chief marketing and strategy officer Jeffrey Pollack."The live NFL experience took a 20-year hiatus from Los Angeles. What we both share is trying to reignite the love for the live NFL experience."Sunday's game at the LA Memorial Coliseum marks the sixth time that two Los Angeles teams will meet. The previous time was Nov. 13, 1994, when the Raiders defeated the Rams 20-17 at Anaheim Stadium.Both teams cite increased season ticket and single-game sales, but the TV ratings remain low. The Nielsen rating for the Chargers' game in Buffalo last Sunday was 7.9 while the Rams' game against the Cardinals drew a 5.6 locally.That was a big drop from Week 1, when the Monday Night game against the Raiders drew a 16.7.The Chargers averaged a 6.0 locally last season in their first season back in Los Angeles. The bigger concern might be the Rams, who averaged a 9.0 when they moved to LA in 2016 but fell to 8.0 last season despite winning the NFC West.For both teams [url=http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/robert-woods-jersey]Womens Robert Woods Jersey[/url] , the ratings aren't close to what they averaged in their former homes. The Rams had a 19.7 rating in St. Louis in 2015 and the Chargers a 24.4 in San Diego in 2016.Both teams though are quick to point out that the television measuring audience in LA compared to the other two markets is more than five times as large.Despite the low TV ratings, Rams Chief Operating Officer Kevin Demoff sees signs of growth elsewhere. He pointed out that attendance at training camp in Irvine increased this season and that fans were more engaged at last week's Cardinals game despite the Rams putting it away at halftime."Whether it is seeing more T-shirts at the farmer's market or hats at the beach it is great to see this team growing in the collective subconscious," he said.Both teams are building their hopes toward 2020, when they move into the new stadium. Tuesday's tour was the first opportunity reporters and most team executives got to see construction from the floor of the stadium, which is half completed. Installation of the massive roof panels has already started.The new stadium will seat 70,240, including 260 luxury suites and 13,000 premium seats."It looks like a stadium now," Chargers President of Business Operations A.G. Spanos said. "To be inside the bowl and see the shape of it you can visualize what it is going to look like."Sunday's game between the Chargers (1-1) and Rams (2-0) at the LA Memorial Coliseum will be another barometer in how much growth remains not only for the rest of this season [url=http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/johnny-hekker-jersey]http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/johnny-hekker-jersey[/url] , but in being able to draw fans to the new stadium.Both teams are considered playoff contenders, and it's possible they could meet in Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta.In a sports marketplace that will only get more crowded next month with a probable Dodgers' postseason appearance and LeBron James debut with the Lakers, Rams coach Sean McVay sees room for everyone."I think there's a lot of opportunities because of the fans and because of all the different resources at our disposal that there's enough room for two good football teams," he said."That's what we want to try to do — continue to try to put out a product that our fans can be proud of and something that they want to come out and support."Follow Joe Reedy at joereedy
