Denver Broncos @ Los Angeles Chargers – CBS, 4:05 PM

Keenum is at his best downfield

Case Keenum has been great on throws traveling 30+ yards downfield, ranking first in completions, yards, and passer rating on such throws.

Lindsay thriving on outside zone

Philip Lindsay has emerged as one of the best young running backs in football. Part of that is due to his dominance on outside zone plays, where he ranks second in yards per attempt (6.7).

Harris being Harris

Chris Harris Jr. is still arguably the best slot corner in the NFL.

Live by the sword…

The Broncos' defense has been torched in man coverage this season, ranking 28th in yards allowed per attempt and 27th in passer rating allowed. Despite that, the Broncos still use man defense at the fourth-highest rate in the NFL.

Rivers handling the rush

Philip Rivers has been unbothered by pass-rushers this season and currently ranks first in passer rating under pressure.

Gordon making 'em miss

Melvin Gordon has forced multiple missed tackles on seven carries this year. No other running back has more than five such runs.

James of all trades

As a rookie, Derwin James is leading all safeties with 14 pressures this season.

Chargers playing best where it matters most

One way to measure a great defense is by its performance in the red zone. The Chargers' defense has allowed a passer rating of just 65.4 in the red zone, which ranks 3rd in the NFL.
