Chargers Grades: Continued
Offensive Line: A
ONLY ONE SACK. OK, it’s the Dolphins. This entire article comes with that disclaimer: very, VERY little from this game should be taken with any more than a grain of salt. That being said, it was very encouraging to see the impressive and relatively mistake-free contest that was had by the Chargers’ much-maligned line.
Also, Forrest Lamp sighting! If I could use the confetti emoji in the middle of an article I absolutely would. Significant concerns about the line still exist, especially as the team faces the Denver Broncos this week (albeit without Bradley Chubb). Next week’s article should have some very important thoughts about the play of the line against Denver.
Defensive Line: B+
Hey, Jerry Tillery sighting! Tillery and Lamp AND Nasir Adderley all playing somewhat significant minutes in the same game? It’s a fan’s dream as Anthony Lynn and his staff were able to get some of the younger guys some in-game looks toward the final ticks against an inferior opponent.
Tillery picked up two tackles and a half a sack. Joey Bosa was his usual dominant self. The sack numbers aren’t there yet, probably because of the attention he brings. Double and triple teams are the norm for Bosa and despite all that he is still playing the best football perhaps of his career.
