The San Diego Chargers built off of their game from last week and are over the .500 mark for the first time in the Mike McCoy era. The Chargers offense controlled the clock and moved the football up and down the field with Philip Rivers tossing the ball out to all of his receivers. Ryan Mathews had another good game on the ground for the Chargers. He passed that 100 yard mark and was picking up big chunks again for the Chargers. He looks more and more comfortable finding the running lanes in the last couple of games. The Chargers offensive line was strong and made holes for Ryan and protected Philip the whole day. That was after the Chargers lost both their left tackles in the game. King Dunlap and Mike Remmers both were lost for the game and D.J. Fluker had to move over to the left side and Jeromey Clary played on the right side.
The Chargers defense was strong for the second straight game for the Chargers. Thomas Keiser was beating his lineman the whole day and got to Chad Henne a multiple of times. Keiser was a beast for the defensive line. The defense has been strong for the last couple of games. The team made sure to keep eyes on Justin Blackmon the whole game and had players all over him.
Great game by the Chargers again. 4-3 going into the BYE week and we will get to rest some of those injuries.
