The Los Angeles Chargers ran rampant over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 17, beating them 31-10 to move to 10-6 on the year.

Offensive spotlight: RB Austin Ekeler ran the ball just 10 times and saw just four targets in the passing game, but he was the star tonight. He racked up 122 rushing yards (12.2 YPC) and two scores, forcing two missed tackles along the way. He added 39 yards and two first downs as a pass-catcher to seal the deal for fantasy managers the nation over.

Defensive spotlight: Chargers cornerback Michael Davis continued his strong run of play, allowing just one catch for four yards across three targets. He forced an incompletion and allowed a 42.4 passer rating on throws into his coverage.

Rookie spotlight: Last week, Rams cornerback Cobie Durant made a couple of splash plays and even made PFF's Week 16 Team of the Week. This week, things didn't go quite as smoothly, as he gave up three catches for 42 yards and one first down across five targets.

Offensive line spotlight: The Chargers' offensive line did a good job of protecting their QB in this one, as they gave up just five total pressures (and no sacks) across 32 passing plays.
