Chargers: Five reasons they still make the playoffs - Alexander Insdorf
In Anthony Lynn’s first two seasons as the head coach, the Chargers have been a team that’s improved as the season has gone on as opposed to a team red-hot from the beginning. In 2017, the team started 0-4 before finishing 9-7. In 2018 the Chargers found themselves at 2-2 and finished 12-4. That puts Lynn at a combined 19-5 over the last 12 games in his first two seasons.

Tillery had the chance to shine against the Dolphins’ woeful offensive line, but yet again, he was unable to make an impact as a pass-rusher. He ended the game with just one pressure on 18 pass-rushing snaps — a pursuit sack that backed Josh Rosen up a couple of yards on third down.

Nwosu had one of his best games as a pro on Sunday despite the Chargers coming up short against the Broncos. He racked up a sack, a hit and three hurries from just 23 pass-rushing snaps and finished the game with another three tackles resulting in a defensive stop and adding a forced fumble.
