Best Play- Tyrell Williams beats 3 Browns

You know when a quarterback has complete confidence in his guy? When he’s willing to throw a ball up for grabs when he is in triple coverage. That’s exactly what happen on this play, the best play of the first half of the season for the Chargers.

Carrying a 7-3 lead over the Cleveland Browns in the second quarter, Philip Rivers dropped back and had plenty of time to throw. Seeing Tyrell Williams heading toward the end zone, he flung it up despite three guys in orange and white being in the area. Williams and one of the Browns’ defenders got their hands on the ball almost simultaneously, but it was Williams who was able to wrestle it away on the ground as the referee signaled for a touchdown.

It seemed to jumpstart the season for Williams, as he had been pretty quiet up to that point. However, he caught another touchdown pass in that game and then the following week against the Tennesee Titans, he caught a 75-yard touchdown pass on the Chargers’ first offensive play.

Williams gives the Chargers another weapon to go with Keenan Allen and Mike Williams in the passing game, one that can take the top off of the defense.
