The San Diego Chargers had a rough 5-11 season that included a five-game losing streak to close the year.
Though the season ended on a sour note and the future of the franchise is uncertain, several players stepped up and had big games this season.
Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman played well in the absence of Keenan Allen and Stevie Johnson who were both basically out for the entire season. Joey Bosa was excellent once he finally got on the field and even a guy like Korey Toomer showed that he has a place on the team in the future.
Much like last season, the Chargers lost a lot of close games that had they won, the record at the end of the season would have looked much better. Still, we can’t cry over spilled milk. What we can do is look back at the season that was and point out some of those top performances that made fans of the Chargers cheer loudly and provide hope for the team.
I went back and looked at every game played this season. Though it was tough to narrow it down to five, here are the top five individual performances from the 2016 season in San Diego, ranked in order.
