Offensive spotlight: In the battle between two of the league's best running backs, it was Austin Ekeler who came out on top in Week 15. The Chargers back ran for 58 yards on 12 carries — with 41 yards coming after contact — scoring once and moving the chains four times. He forced seven missed tackles and recorded two runs of 10 or more yards.
Defensive spotlight: Chargers cornerback Michael Davis continued his strong run of play, giving up just one catch for four yards from three targets in coverage. He forced an incompletion and allowed a 42.2 passer rating on the day.
Rookie spotlight: Titans rookie cornerback Roger McCreary was solid in coverage on Sunday, allowing two catches for 19 yards across four targets.
However, he also made of the best plays of the season late in the second quarter when he leaped out of bounds and tossed an errant Justin Herbert throw back into play for teammate Joshua Kalu to pick off.
