The Chargers’ efforts against the Cowboys were notable. Players like Derwin James, Mike Williams, and Austin Ekeler fought like hell to keep the game close while enduring the numerous penalties committed by the rest of the team.

Unsurprisingly, those players named above were graded out as some of the best from their week two loss. At the same time, some of the team’s players that must be relied upon to help them turn this thing around didn’t shine all that brightly, either. Captain Corey Linsley was underwhelming in pass protection and starting linebacker Kenneth Murray and Kyzir White weren’t good enough in their responsibilities to limit damage up the middle.

Like every week, there’s both good and bad. Let’s take a look at who stepped up against the Cowboys and who couldn’t rise to the occasion.
