Chargers’ best and worst PFF grades vs. the Chiefs in Week 2

Asante Sauel Jr. played a heck of game, with or without hauling in an interception.

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

The Chargers got an incredibly gutsy — if not near dangerous — performance from Justin Herbert against the Chiefs. He ended the night with three more touchdown passes and an interception that was returned for a touchdown. But to be fair, several parties were at fault for that blunder, but it’s one of the reasons you won’t see Herbert amid this week’s top-five Pro Football Focus grades against Kansas City.

Herbert left Thursday’s loss with an overall mark of 64.0, good for 12th among offensive players. We know he played better than those numbers, but a game-shifting turnover obviously will do him no favors, no matter who ultimately deserves most of the blame.

Overall there were several notable performers on both sides of the ball with the defense earning the team’s highest grade among all players.
