Andrew Luck was bad, and then he was hurt, and the rest of the team fell apart. In what ways, if any, are the Chargers a better team this season?

That hasn't exactly been the case. But after the Raiders allowed 396 passing yards and three touchdowns to Matt Ryan and the Falcons last week, they may be the team that fantasy owners start all their players against this season. The problem is that the Colts around him are doing very little to actually help him.

But that's what we have seen from the Indianapolis Colts, who have allowed a combined 73 points in setbacks to the Detroit Lions and Denver Broncos.

COLTS start season 0-2 for third straight year after 34-20 loss to Broncos in Denver. Luck was by no stretch of the imagination "great", but did, for a period of time, give his team a chance to win. Expect him to be utilized on deep post routes and underneath drag routes to try to get behind the defense and beat them with his speed. For the Indianapolis Colts, Week 3 is as much of a must-win as it gets this early in the season. Will Stefon Diggs repeat his awesome performance from Week 2 this week against Carolina? While the Chargers will take their lumps offensively, the Colts will continue to find their footing with a mind-bogglingly depleted defensive unit that will be without two of their top three cornerbacks as they take the field on Sunday.

The chess match between two teams better known for their high-scoring acts and franchise quarterbacks could evolve into a good old-fashioned game of smashmouth football. Off the field, the team's ownership uses its leverage of simply being an National Football League franchise against the city of San Diego, threatening to move to a new city. Wide receiver Keenan Allen and running back Danny Woodhead suffered torn ACLs in the first two weeks. Rivers, meanwhile, has a depleted offensive cast with key target tight end Antonio Gates dealing with a hamstring issue. His 159 yards rank No. 7 in the league, and he's coming off his first career 100-yard game, a 102-yard effort last week in the rout of Jacksonville. At age 34 and in his 13th season, Rivers now is third in the league in hasn't showed any sign of slowing, now ranking third in the league in passer rating and leading the No. 2 scoring offense (32.5 ppg). The game takes place from CenturyLink Field in Seattle and has a start time of 4.05 p.m. ET. Unfortunately, this means Jets vs. Chiefs free live streaming options are limited. Kevin Harlan and Rich Gannon will serve as the announcers for the contest.

Here are five things to watch for in Sunday's matchup between the Chargers and Colts.
