Happy Thanksgiving! This is where the season goes into the dog days and every win is crazy important. Let’s rock and roll.
This was a flat out shit show. The offense did not convert a 3rd down until late in the 4th quarter. Derek Carr was 19 of 27 (70.3%) for 215 yards with a touchdown a interceptions and a lost fumble. Josh Jacobs had 9 carries for 37 yards with 5 receptions for 24 yards. Darren Waller had 7 receptions for 116 yards. The defense had 3 sacks and 7 tackles for loss. Daniel Carlson was 2 for 2 on fieldgoals and 1 for 1 on extra points. At least the Raiders are consistent, they find a way to fold after a great start year in and year out.
The offense was just ok in this game but Chris Jones and the defense was flat out insane. Patrick Mahomes was 23 of 37 (62.1%) for 260 yards with a interception and lost fumble. Clyde Edwards-Helaire had 12 carries for 63 yards and touchdown with 2 receptions for 13 yards. Tyreek Hill had 9 receptions for 77 yards. The defense had 5 sacks and 5 tackles for loss with 2 interceptions and 2 forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. Harrison Butker was 2 for 3 on fieldgoals and 1 for 2 on extra points. This marks 4 wins in a row and taking the division lead.
Talk about a shootout, WOW. The Chargers had a offensive explosion. Justin Herbert was 30 of 41 (73.1%) for 382 yards and 3 touchdowns and a interception with 9 carries for 90 yards. Austin Ekeler had 11 carries for 50 yards and 2 touchdowns with 6 receptions for 65 yards and 2 touchdowns. Keenan Allen had 9 receptions for 112 yards. The defense had 3 sacks and 3 tackles for loss. Dustin Hopkins was 2 for 2 on fieldgoals and 5 for 5 on extra points. This was a big win.
