5 Good Stats: San Diego Chargers at Jacksonville Jaguars

Philip Rivers - 22/28, 294 yards, 3 TDs, 0 turnovers, 0 sacks
An old-school performance by El Capitan of the San Diego Chargers. It was really nice to see Rivers set his feet once he realized he didn't have to worry about the pass-rush getting to him, and I think he surprised himself with how accurate he still can be on all of his passes (including long downfield throws).

Ryan Mathews - 13 carries, 112 rush yards, 1 TD, 0 turnovers
This entire offense, including Mathews, seems to have playmakers that are great when healthy but get injured far too often. Bam Bam showed in the first 5-6 weeks of the season how effective he can be, then slowed down do to injury, and in the last two games he's back to showing that he has MVP-like talent if he can manage to stay healthy and hold onto the football.

Malcom Floyd - 4 catches, 108 yards, 1 TD
Ladies and gentlemen, Malcom Floyd! I was certain that there was no way Malcom was the Charger in 2012. The team has to be tired of naming him a starter and then spending half of the season waiting for him to get healthy. Then he gets on the field and dominates whoever he's matched up against, and you start thinking "We can't just cut this guy, right?" Right.

Vincent Jackson - 4 catches, 72 yards, 1 TD
Are you seeing a pattern yet? The Jaguars were bad at covering WRs, so the Chargers WRs got open often and made plays.

Eric Weddle - 4 tackles, 1 defended pass, 1 Interception
Eric Weddle, the Philip Rivers of the San Diego defense, has exploded into a playmaker this season. When he signed his large contract in the offseason, the room seemed split on people that thought he was ready to blow and people that thought he was drastically overpaid.

Last night, at a critical time in the game, Weddle swung the momentum San Diego's way with his 6th interception of the season. His previous high was 2 interceptions in a season. He's currently on pace to finish with 8 interceptions on the season, which is Ed Reed territory. Congratulations, Eric. You're proving that contract and A.J. Smith right. You are one of the best Safeties in the league.
