NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Buffalo Bills Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

5 takeaways from a Chargers’ blowout vs. Buffalo Bills - Alexander Insdorf
Derwin James was a human wrecking ball on the field, getting to Josh Allen with sacks, as well as playing some great pass defense. Kyzir White transitioned nicely into a linebacker role and made some great plays, including a great interception to seal the game. Uchenna Nwosu got a great sack in the first quarter and got four tackles to go along with it.

Los Angeles Chargers Head Coach Anthony Lynn Requires Discipline and Accountability - Ernie Padaon
This likely was a soft call for the refs, but King was caught and penalized. Lynn was not having it. Lynn could have went right after the refs, but instead he went to his player and let him know that you cannot allow little mistakes like that in key positions. We were playing the Bills this time, but when you start playing the top teams in the league, these things matter!

Melvin Ingram, Derwin James fill void left by Joey Bosa's absence - Eric Williams
“I feel like we got good pressure, but we can always have more,” Ingram said. “We have to get back in the lab and keep practicing. We still have to try and get to the quarterback. If every passing play isn’t a sack, we can always get more.”

PFF's Week 2 NFL Team of the Week - Gordon McGuinness
Transitioning to linebacker with the Chargers, White is clearly taking to the move well, earning a spot in our Team of the Week. Showing off his ability as a playmaker, he had a pass breakup and an interception in coverage.

Fantasy stats to know from Week 2 - Scott Barrett
Through two weeks, Ekeler is our single-highest-graded running back. Ekeler has 24 more rushing yards than Gordon on eight fewer carries. Ekeler is averaging more yards after contact per attempt (4.5) than Gordon is averaging in general (3.8). Ekeler has only 32 fewer receiving yards than Gordon but on 11 fewer targets (and two fewer dropped passes). Gordon has been much maligned for his career 3.80 yards per carry average, and though I think it’s unlikely, it is possible Ekeler turns this into a committee at some point in the season.
