With two straight wins, Khalil Mack and the Los Angeles Chargers defense have their confidence back.
Sunday’s opponent though will provide a better indicator if they have turned the corner.
The Chargers host Jared Goff and Detroit on Sunday. The Lions (6-2) are coming off the bye and have the league’s second-most productive offense.
“We have an expectation to go out and play dominant defense every week, regardless of who the opponent is,” said Mack, whose nine sacks are tied for fifth most in the league.
The Chargers held the Jets without a touchdown in Monday’s 27-6 win and led throughout in a 30-13 victory over Chicago to get back to .500 at 4-4.
Those victories though came with Zach Wilson and Tyson Bagent as the opposing quarterbacks. Goff and Detroit’s offense should offer a bigger challenge.
The Lions come into the game as one of only two teams ranked in the top six in both rushing and passing.
Goff is fifth in the league, averaging 271.4 yards per game. He is tied for second with 35 completions of at least 20 yards and faces a Chargers defense that has allowed 35 passes of 20 or more yards, fifth most in the league.
Wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown has three straight 100-yard games with 31 receptions for 334 yards and a touchdown.
Chargers coach Brandon Staley, who had to go against Goff daily in practices when we was the Rams defensive coordinator in 2020, has not been surprised with the way Goff has played with the Lions.
“The things that make him a special quarterback are the things that he’s doing right now. He’s really tough. He’s smart. He’s really accurate with the football,” Staley said.
Goff is making his second trip back to SoFi Stadium since he was traded by the Rams in 2021. He threw for 268 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in a 28-19 loss to the Rams two years ago.
If Los Angeles is going to win its third straight, the pass rush is going to have to deliver again. The Chargers have four players with at least four sacks on the season and are coming off a game where they took down Wilson eight times.
The Lions rank 25th in the league on offense in the red zone, scoring touchdowns less than half the time, and are 27th on defense when teams drive to their 20 or closer to the end zone.
The Lions, first-place in the NFC North, bounced back nicely from their humbling at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens, recording a nice win over the Las Vegas Raiders before heading into their Week 9 bye.
Week 10 brings another AFC West opponent for the Lions, this time a trip to take on the Los Angeles Chargers, who have revived their season after a 2-4 start and come into this encounter riding on a two-game winning streak consisted of convincing wins over the lowly Chicago Bears and New York Jets.
Detroit is aiming for its first postseason appearance since 2016 after jumping to the top of the NFC North standings with a 6-2 record. The Lions are certainly in a strong position, but coach Dan Campbell understands the second half of the schedule will present bigger challenges, starting with a Chargers team that is going for its third straight win.
