Chargers’ best and worst PFF grades vs. the Cardinals

The grades won’t show, but the Chargers got big-time performances from several players against the Cardinals.

For what felt like the majority of the game, both the offense and defense of the Chargers left much on the table. The offense was non-existent in the first quarter before coming alive in the second — like they usually do — and then disappeared once more before putting together the game-winning drive.

Defensively, they didn’t force a punt until the fourth quarter. However, they strung three consecutive three-and-outs together to allow Justin Herbert and the offense one last opportunity to go down and win the game.

They did just that.

It was a complete team effort in the end and every deserves some semblance of praise.

But how did they all shake out in the eyes of Pro Football Focus? Let’s take a look at how the Chargers graded out against the Cardinals in week 12.
