2. The LA Chargers have fixed the offensive line... finally!

A big reason why the LA Chargers offense was operating on all cylinders was because of the protection that Justin Herbert was getting. This is definitely the most protected Herbert has been in his NFL career as this new-look offensive line looked great.

It was by no means perfect but the offensive line did a really good job holding up against one of the best pass-rushes in the entire league. The play designs were meant to get the ball out fast and that helped but that still cannot work with a bad offensive line.

Bryan Bulaga did not play the second half because of a lower back injury and while Storm Norton had some bad moments, overall, he was fine as a backup tackle. As far as the rest of the line goes, they held pretty strong and gave Herbert time to operate.

Improving the offensive line was one of the biggest storylines of the offseason and while it looked good on paper, we had to see it in a real game before fully buying in on this being a fixed offensive line.

We have seen it. This starting offensive line group is solid and for now, the problem has been fixed.

Verdict: Not an overreaction
