Chargers last game ball

Joey Bosa is a prime example of the stat sheet not telling the whole story. He has been hyper active in the run game, taking on double and sometimes triple teams, as well as stellar at pressuring opposing quarterbacks.

On Sunday, he put out as dominant a game as ever. He finished the game with four total tackles, two tackles for loss, two quarterback hits, and one crucial sack. When he finally got a one-on-one matchup, he showed off his great strength and body control as he rushed past the offensive tackle and finished the job for a big loss. The sack was vintage Bosa, and this game was a great way to remind everyone just how good he truly is.

Another play that stood out on Sunday happened when he started to rush the passer and noticed that running back Philip Lindsay was leaking out as receiver. Bosa stopped mid-rush, turned, and chased the running back down after a gain of a few yards. That, and several other plays throughout the year, have shown just how tuned in he is as a defender these days.

Next. Do Chargers grades change after Week 5 loss?

Amidst all the injuries and disappointing losses, the Chargers have been able to lean on Bosa as a consistent producer. On the season he is now up to 20 total pressures and 24 total tackles, and his 17 run stops are second-most in the NFL. His consistent intensity has led to him having one of the highest pass rush win-rates in the league. Bosa has faith that the team will be able to turn things around, and long as he is playing at this current level, there should be little reason to doubt that.
