He isn’t sure exactly how long it will take for Los Angeles to truly feel like home for the Chargers.
However, Melvin Gordon does know he never again wants to experience the way his team started the season in its new surroundings.

It sucks being 0-4 and walking around the facility and everyone’s swagger is just not the same, Gordon told co-host Gil Brandt and me Wednesday on SiriusXM NFL Radio. We wanted some change, so we knew we had to go in there and find a way.
The Chargers did just that with last Sunday’s 27-22 road upset of the Giants. And they leaned most heavily on Gordon to carry the offensive load.
Another Newton interception led to another touchdown pass from Wentz to Ertz, this time from 17 yards out. Newton was picked off for a third time, but Rodney McLeod’s interception was negated by an Eagles pass interference penalty. The 40-yard penalty moved the Panthers to the Eagles 25-yard line to set up Graham Gano’s 20-yard field goal.

The third-year running back responded with his best game of the season, reaching triple digits on the ground for the first time in 2017 with 105 yards on 20 carries. Gordon was equally effective as a receiver with a team-high six catches for 58 yards, including two that went for touchdowns.
It just wasn’t the O-line. I think everyone played a part, said Gordon, who was named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts. Everyone was just calmed down and focusing on their assignments, and they definitely helped open up some things for me.
