Sunday’s five most valuable players, Week 11 - MJD
The Chargers fell to the Bears, but Vincent Jackson did his part. In fact, you could argue that he kept the Chargers in the game. More than half of Philip Rivers' passing yards went to Jackson -- seven receptions for 165 yards and a touchdown. If he had one-on-one on the outside, Chicago just didn't have anyone that could handle him. Of course, the San Diego defense didn't have anyone that could handle anyone on the Chicago offense, either, but that's another story.
