30 PFF Stats To Know For NFL Week 10 - Nathan Jahnke
After a disappointing rookie season, Chargers RB Melvin Gordon has been among the most-improved players in the NFL. After not scoring a rushing touchdown in 2015, he has nine after nine weeks this year, tied for the most in the NFL. He is doing well despite sub-par run blocking in front of him, mainly because he’s been able to make defenders miss. This week, Gordon faces a Miami team whose strength is fighting the run, thanks to players like Ndamukong Suh, Mario Williams, and Andre Branch. The Dolphins have faced some of the better rushing attacks in the league this season, but have been inconsistent when it comes to stopping them.

"Obviously, (Gordon) finishing the game was pretty special," Whisenhunt said. "… It goes a long way towards building a mentality with your football team. It’s easy to say you should finish it off every week like that. It’s not easy. It’s hard to do that. Our guys were in a groove, they worked hard and it was really good to be able to finish that way for a change."
