The Los Angeles Chargers and Tennessee Titans were even for most of this Week 15 clash, but in the end, quarterback Justin Herbert led his Chargers on a game-winning drive to seal a 17-14 win.

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.

Offensive line spotlight: The Chargers line came out on top in this one. They gave up two sacks but allowed only one hit and three hurries outside of those plays. In all, they gave up six total pressures across 45 pass-blocking snaps on first review.
