Blaine Gabbert - 19/33, 195 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT
Of course the Jacksonville Jaguars' rookie QB would have his first ever multiple-TD game against the San Diego Chargers. Once the Jaguars fell behind big, their defense unable to stop the Chargers' offense, and had to rely on Gabbert, things got awfully bad awfully quick for the Jags.

Maurice Jones-Drew - 20 carries, 97 rush yards, 6 catches, 91 rec yards, 1 TD
The good thing about facing an offense that only has one good player is that you can still win when that good player has an outstanding game. Make no mistake about it. MJD was a one-man wrecking crew last night and looked like he could be the MVP of this season if only his team had a QB that could take advantage of the opportunities downfield.

Guy Whimper - 1 catch, 17 yards
Look, Eric Weddle....I know Guy Whimper is a big dude with a ridiculous name. He's probably lived a life not unlike the life led by A Boy Named Sue. I know I wouldn't want to tackle him, but if I were an NFL player I'd attempt to tackle a steamroller if he had the ball in his hands on third down.

Kassim Osgood (no stats)
Would've been nice to see Kassim get a catch in front of his old team. I never had an issue with Kassim and wish he were still on the Chargers. The whole Jaguars thing doesn't appear to be working out as planned, for him or them, and it's just sad at this point.

Bront Bird - 1 tackle, 1 defended pass
If I never see Bront Bird play another down at ILB for the Chargers in a regular season or playoff game for as long as I live, it'll still be too soon.
