    The Chargers host the Falcons on Sunday. If you are somehow able to get around the blackout and watch the game, here are three Bolts to keep an eye on.

    1) Louis Vasquez. The Chargers right guard will have to deal with Atlanta's human mountain named Jonathan Babineaux. The 6'2", 300-pound tackle leads the Falcons with two sacks and is good at collapsing pockets. Control him on the interior line (along with left guard Tyronne Green) and you have a good chance at controlling the line of scrimmage.

    2) Donald Butler. The middle linebacker will see his fair share of time guarding the ageless Tony Gonzalez. Butler is big and athletic enough to run with the future Hall of Famer, but is giving up a decade of experience. Gonzalez is Matt Ryan's safety net. Making it harder to connect with him will slow down Atlanta's offense.

    3) Dante Rosario. The tight end had a career game with three touchdown catches against the Titans. But, Antonio Gates is back. Rosario proved last week he has the ability to impact a game, and Philip Rivers trusts him. There's been a lot of talk about the Bolts going to a 3-tight end formation to confuse opponents. Rosario's emergence presents a great time to test it out.
