The San Diego Chargers are facing off against the undefeated Buffalo Bills this weekend. The team needs to step up the defense and slow down some of the quick players on their offense. Rookie WR Sammy Watkins just won the rookie of the week award. CJ Spiller is another speedster that can fly that the team will need to slow down. He won the special teams player of the week award this weekend also. The team needs to slow these dynamic players down.

Here are 3 key players on the defensive side of the ball.

Jarret Johnson

Johnson will be back on the field and could see a significant amount of time with the injuries on the outside. His ability to set the edge in the run game will be big in stopping CJ Spiller.

It will be big to have Johnson back on the field. Melvin Ingram is out for the game, so Johnson will need to provide some help in the pass rush as well.
