Colin Cowherd had no choice but to raise the Los Angeles Chargers and lower the LA Rams in his weekly Herd Hierarchy after Week 9 in the NFL brought about some change in the Fight for Los Angeles. While the Chargers convincingly beat the Seattle Seahawks, the Rams felt their own shock in a brutal loss to the New Orleans Saints.

“Even when I had [the Rams] at number 1, I said they don’t have a consistent pass rush,” Cowherd said. “I don’t like this Dante Fowler move, he’s a me guy, he’s kind of doing his own thing…he doesn’t solve their pass rush problem.”
Cowherd believes their pass rush problem continues to look significant, especially as they were unable to muster a sack against the Saints.

On the other end, Cowherd believes the Chargers are legitimate Super Bowl contenders and that their win against the ‘Hawks was more favorable than the 25-17 score would suggest.
The Rams will now play the Seahawks on Sunday at 1:25p, while the Chargers play the Raiders at the same time on FOX.
