The LA Chargers had some standout performances in the win over the New York Jets.
The LA Chargers got back in the win column in Week 11 with a 34-28 victory over the New York Jets. It felt ugly, as the Chargers allowed the winless Jets to hang around longer than we hoped for, but a win is a win.
The main takeaway from this game is the absolutely stellar showing from Justin Herbert and Keenan Allen. Herbert wound up throwing for 366 yards and three touchdowns while Allen broke the franchise record for receptions in a game with 16. He went for 145 yards and a touchdown.
There were more standouts outside of just Hebert and Allen that we would like to focus on. Here are those three players that deserve a little bit of love following the win.
1. Tevaughn Campbell
Tevaughn Campbell had to play slot corner for the LA Chargers and there was a lot of room for disaster as he has not played slot corner in his short professional career. This was only the second start of his career and was the biggest workload he was given as he played 95% of the defensive snaps.
The highlight of Campbell’s day was the pick-six on Joe Flacco in the first quarter. The Chargers got off to an absolutely terrible start with a blocked punt and fumble at the one-yard line and Campbell’s pick-six helped re-right the ship and keep the game from getting way out of hand fast.
He was targeted just four times in this game, allowing two receptions for only 23 yards. He also had the final pass break-up for the Chargers as Joe Flacco took a shot at the endzone on fourth and nine only down eight.
Campbell was there to make the play on Denzel Mims and had a big impact on the Bolts winning this game.
