Chargers' defense laments lack of pass rush in loss to Rams

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Chargers have been short-handed the first three weeks of the season without their top two pass rushers. On Sunday, that lack of a pass rush was one of the biggest reasons why they lost to their cross-town rivals.

The Chargers were only able to get one sack against Jared Goff in a 35-23 loss to the Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. A non-existent pass rush allowed Goff to pick the Chargers apart, throwing for 354 yards and three touchdowns.

"We couldn't get off the field. I think the first half, he completed 90 percent of his passes," Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said. "We have to figure out how to get pressure on the quarterback."
