The Chargers put together their most complete game of the season on Sunday. The offense was on point and Philip Rivers was able to take an early rest in the game. He threw for 3 touchdowns and had the offense rolling on all cylinders. Keenan Allen hurt his shoulder in the game, but still was able to fight through the game and finish with a couple of touchdowns. Ryan Mathews kept running the ball with authority. Danny Woodhead continued his great play on offense.
The Chargers defense stepped up in a big way today. Jarret Johnson and Melvin Ingram returned to the lineup and both made an impact on the roster. Ingram only played in a handful of plays, but he was able to force a fumble for a turnover in his limited action. Shareece Wright got his first interception of his career and did an excellent job of covering Victor Cruz. Donald Butler also had an interception. The defense was hitting hard and getting their hands on any loose ball.
It was good to see the team step up and make some plays on both sides of the ball. It was well needed. The team has to turn right around and play on Thursday against the Denver Broncos. It is going to be another battle.
