Chargers best and worst PFF grades vs. the Browns

Who managed to stand out in a game full of questionable play?

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Los Angeles Chargers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

When Brandon Staley talks about “telling the truth” about their recent performance, he’s referring to the notion that just because they won, doesn’t mean they played a good football game.

When you look at this week’s grades for the Chargers from Pro Football Focus, you start to see what he’s talking about a bit better.

The Bolts played a heck of a game. That’s for certain. But it was far from a shimmering outing.

Justin Herbert, who scored five touchdowns without turning the ball over once, finished with a team-high grade of 83.0. That was the Chargers’ only mark above an 80.0 On defense, Chris Harris Jr. led the way with a 76.9, one of only two grades above 70.0 on that side of the ball.

With that being said, let’s take a look at the rest of the best, and worst, grades from this Sunday’s game.
