The Los Angeles Chargers put out their best performance since the victory over Green Bay, resulting in a huge win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Besides the bizarre healthy scratches of promising rookies Jerry Tillery and Trey Pipkins, there is nothing for Chargers fans to complain about from Sunday’s performance. For the second time this season, everything went the Chargers way. The offense was creative and explosive. The defense was disruptive and dominant. This led to a 45-10 Chargers win, on future Hall of Fame quarterback Philip Rivers’ birthday no less.

As was the case in the win over the Packers, it is tough to pinpoint who exactly deserves a game ball. Running back Austin Ekeler is one clear choice, but Scott Quessenberry and Brandon Facyson will also be getting a game ball for their efforts.

Though a case could certainly be made for Rivers, Derek Watt, Drue Tranquill and Joey Bosa, it takes a team effort to have a game like that.

While the star players certainly did their part on Sunday, and Ekeler really did have a legendary performance, the “other” players played excellent too.
