Corey Liuget Recognized For His Defensive Effort On Thursday

San Diego Chargers DE Corey Liuget has been recognized for his play on Thursday against the Denver Broncos. He was selected as one of Peter King’s defensive players of the week on his MMQB article.

Here is what King said about Liuget:

Corey Liuget, defensive tackle, San Diego. His rush through a double-team with less than six minutes to play at Denver, knocking Peyton Manning’s right arm off course, gave San Diego an easy interception and clinched a huge Thursday night upset. Liuget wants attention for his play, and for the play of the Charger defensive front, and he certainly deserves it based on his performance over the past three months.

Liuget has been playing well of late. He has been beating double teams and getting to the quarterback. It would be nice to see how he would do with a legit nose tackle standing next to him.

    Way to go Corey. You sealed that game for us, and didn’t let another one of those soul-crushing comebacks become a reality. Thank you so much.
