Chargers hoping to establish run game early against Rams

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Chargers haven't needed to rely too much on their run game during their first two games, but that might change on Sunday against the unbeaten Rams.

The Chargers (1-1) have called runs on 37.5 percent of their plays the first two weeks, which is the fifth-lowest percentage in the AFC. Despite that, they are averaging 116 yards, which is above the league average of 104 yards.

In other words, Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler aren't getting a lot of carries, but they are making the most of their plays.
