“I think defensively, we have really started to become comfortable with this defense,” linebacker Kyle Emanuel said on the team’s website. “I think it took a little bit, but we are playing well.

Chargers* have an advantage over Chiefs in showdown - Tom Krasovic
At this critical position, the Chargers* have held up perhaps better than any other NFL tandem. Standouts Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram have stayed off the injury report, set personal marks for snaps in a game and maintained a high level of effort and energy.

Top fantasy takeaways from Week 14's action - Jeff Ratcliffe
With one of the toughest matchups on this week’s slate, Cousins struggled mightily and managed just 151 yards and a score.
