The Chargers fall to 1-1 on the season with a loss to the Lions. Here’s what went right and what went horribly wrong in this game.

Well, that was something. The Chargers lose on the road, falling to the Lions in what was a frustrating game with a disappointing conclusion.

Let’s just get right into it: Here’s what went right and wrong for the Chargers today.

Chargers: What went right on offense

Keenan Allen

That was one of the most elite performances not to crack 100 yards. Keenan Allen abused Darius Slay through the entire game, and was unfortunately let down by a poor decision leading to an interception. Otherwise, it would have been one heck of a dominant performance from No. 13, who now has 16 catches for 221 yards through two games.

Mike Williams

Mike Williams could have potentially missed this game; if he had, what would the score have been? Travis Benjamin was a non-factor here, and Dontrelle Inman contributed very little. Massive props to No. 81 for making some of the best catches of the game, including this one:

Williams will need to be as available next week as the Chargers host a team with one of the best receivers in football.
