Despite putting up 41 points against a solid Bengals defense, the Chargers offense didn’t grade out all that well by Pro Football Focus. In fact, not a single offensive player received a game grade higher than an 80.0. To the surprise of many, wide receiver Jalen Guyton was the offense’s highest-graded player with a 77.6.

In the end, four of the Chargers’ highest-graded players against the Bengals came on the defensive side of the ball, which is actually pretty good news when you consider that’s been the bigger problem for most of the season.
