3. Denzel Perryman is a tackling stud.
All hail Denzel Perryman!
“The Hammer” is back, and in one game he flipped the script on the entire Chargers’ rushing defense. Going up last week against an incredibly tough back in Leonard Fournette, the Bolts’ regularly porous defense allowed him to rush for just 33 yards on 17 carries, a 1.9 yards per carry average. 90% of that was Denzel Perryman.
I’m not sure when was the last time I could remember a Chargers linebacker firing into the line of scrimmage and making plays on a consistent basis. On a limited basis, Perryman led the Chargers in tackles with ten. This Sunday, the Bolts are tasked with slowing down LeSean McCoy. Look for Perryman to be active again, and maybe even lead the team in tackles in just his second game back from injury. If 52 can play well and limit McCoy, the Chargers have a great shot of winning.
