PFF Grade: 63.5 overall, 72.5 pass blocking, 55.7 run blocking
Stats: No sacks, six total pressures, no penalties
Schofield rose from the ashes of a bad preseason to have the highest overall pass-blocking grade of any starting Chargers lineman. Again, Forrest Lamp (more on him later) is being impeded by some average-to-good play from the guards in front of him. Schofield has done enough to hold onto his job.
PFF Grade: 58.2 overall, 61.0 pass blocking, 57.9 run blocking

To be honest, this one may have been set up to fail in my mind from the beginning. I didn’t want Tevi out there, reviewing 2018 games supported my opinion, and the opportunity to draft a tackle in the first round seemed too easy a decision…which they didn’t make.
Tevi has been…exactly as expected. Rivers deserves better than this, but it appears the coaching staff has absolutely no problem having him out there for the rest of the season. Tevi is not going to hold up once defenses start getting tougher, and his three sacks allowed against J.J. Watt and the Texans are proof of that.
PFF Grade: 66.0
Stats: Four receptions, 60 yards, no touchdowns, 118.8 passer rating when targeted
Henry was everything the Chargers hoped he would be in his debut: A reliable target and a great run-blocker. Unfortunately, he also became what the Chargers have known him to be: An injured player. Hopefully No. 86 returns soon.
Grade: n/a (not enough games)
