r Henry’s breakout season?Dec 3 Tyrell Williams Color Rush Jersey , 2017; Carson, CA, USA; Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry (86) reacts after a first down catch during the first quarter against the Cleveland Browns at StubHub Center. Mandatory Credit: Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY SportsOrlando Ramirez-USA TODAY SportsBy all accounts, Henry was ready to take a big step forward before tearing his ACL last offseason, and there is no reason to think that is not still the case heading into this coming season thanks to the high rates at which elite athletes return from ACL injuries to continue at their previously high levels. The idea of Henry taking a big step forward should strike fear into the hearts of opposing defenses for two reasons.The first reason is that Henry was already borderline dominant in 2017. He was the third-most productive and fourth-most efficient tight end that season trailing the likes of Travis Kelce and the now-retired (or perhaps that should read the for-now-retired) Rob Gronkowski. Drafted in 2016, the Chargers’ tight end was immediately one of the most balanced players at his position, and he did not have a long way to go from where he started to be in the conversation for best in the NFL. It’s honestly a difficult to envision what a step forward even looks like for a player as good as he already was.The second reason is that the Los Angeles offense in the 2018-19 NFL season was incredible. They were the clearcut #3 unit behind only the Rams and the Kansas City Chiefs. And as a passing offense they were only looking up at the Chiefs. Where they were slightly less effective than that ranking was in the redzone where they were admittedly still very good, ranking 8th in touchdown percentage. That is where Henry can instantly represent a huge improvement. The 6’5” former Razorback is an obvious weapon by the goal line. In 29 career games, he has hauled in 12 touchdowns. He will take pressure off Melvin Gordon and Mike Williams who shouldered much of the load in his absence this past year.Anthony Lynn’s Chargers were already one of the NFL’s best teams in 2018 Derek Watt Color Rush Jersey , and with Henry they are both more dangerous and more consistent. Henry is also valuable be the 20s and will feature an especially important role on 3rd downs where his large frame and sure hands can fairly be expected to keep drives going and keep the defense resting on the sidelines. Ten years after their first trip to London, Los Angeles Chargers veterans Phillip Rivers and Antonio Gates are keen to see how much the British audience has learned about the American version of football.Rivers and Gates took part in the second regular-season game played at Wembley back in 2008, when the NFL was still a bit of a curiosity and large parts of the crowd didn’t quite understand the sport.“I remember like if it was yesterday,” Gates said. “The ball would be punted in the air and the crowd would be making noise. We were like, ‘what are you making noise about?’ But it was just their way. They’re used to watching soccer, and the chants and things of that nature. It was foreign to us, just like we were foreign to them.“And now I think over the years, they’ve learned to grasp a little bit more a better concept of the game of American football. Most people understand it now here.”That was the goal behind the NFL’s decision to stage annual games in London — to grow the interest and understanding of the game overseas. When the Chargers (4-2) host the Tennessee Titans (3-3) at Wembley on Sunday, it will be the 23rd game played in London since 2007.“I’m interested to see again the atmosphere in the stadium Travis Benjamin Color Rush Jersey ,” Rivers said. “Last week, I hear it was an unbelievable crowd for Oakland and Seattle. I remember there being a great crowd 10 years. I just remember so many different jerseys from so many different teams represented. The energy was in there. A long pass, or a ball getting kicked, all those things got the crowd going pretty good.”The Chargers arrived in London on Friday morning after spending the week in Cleveland following a win over the Browns, a move aimed to shorten the trip and make it easier to adjust to the time difference.It also helped the players bond while spending that time together, coach Anthony Lynn said.“We did have a team-building activity and 100 percent participation. And I thought the guys liked it a lot,” Lynn said. “I left it up to my sports psychologists. The coaches get the hell out of the room and let the players talk and do their own thing. But everyone says it went really well.”The shorter flight didn’t completely help Rivers stave off the jet lag.“Today was one of those days where I don’t think anything could help. It got to the point where that third, fourth cup of coffee wasn’t working at all,” the quarterback said after finishing a training session in North London at 8 a.m. California time. “But it’s not bad. I think if we can push through and get to 8 Keenan Allen Color Rush Jersey , 9 o’clock tonight, we should be OK.”Running back Melvin Gordon was limited in the practice session, but Lynn said it was mainly a precaution after the long trip.“He was just sore. Long plane ride. Probably didn’t drink enough water,” Lynn said. “We were being extra cautious with him.”For those European fans who have really studied the game since the Chargers’ last visit, Rivers did have some disappointing news. The Alabama native won’t be wearing his famous bolo tie after the game, although he does plan on sporting his traditional cowboy boots.“I did not bring the bolo tie. I’ve got the cowboy boots,” Rivers said. “I always make sure to have those with me on game day. The same boots I probably wore here in 2008, I’ve had them for that long. They’re almost like slippers now.”
