Chargers’ best and worst PFF grades vs. the Colts

The secondary and pass rush had a field day against the Colts.

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Indianapolis Colts Robert Scheer-USA TODAY Sports

The Chargers’ win over the Colts on Monday night was spurred on by another strong defensive effort led by a ferocious pass rush. Six players recorded at least one sack, with Morgan Fox notching a pair.

In fact, that side of the ball was so dominant that four of their top-five graded players finished with a grade of 84.3 or higher. For context, 90.0 is considered “elite” by Pro Football Focus’ standards.

The 20-3 win was also only the second double-digit victory posted by the Chargers this season, so there’s no surprise to see names like Corey Linsley and Austin Ekeler up near the top for that side of the ball.

That said, here are this week’s best and worst-graded players from the Chargers’ week 16 win over the Colts.
