Rivers looked great.
Ekeler and Jackson looked every bit as good as Gordon. They hit the holes harder. Gordon dances around too much. They are better at running after contact and great are both pass catchers, particularly Ekeler.
Kicking - Their kicker was out and they've had terrible kicking problems the last few years before finding Badgley, but their punter, who used to kick in the CFL was perfect, even with a brand new and first time long snapper and holder making all his extra points and a 40+ yard FG.
Pass rush - Not great, but Ingram and Bosa do put some pressure and their entire front line is solid. They were a bit tired to end the game after holding the Colts and then the punt returner fumbling the ball, so they had to stay on for two possessions in a row in the 3rd, but they held on at the end for the win.
Keenan Allen solid and reliable as usual.
Hunter Henry with a nice bounce back game after being out with injury last year.
Special teams punt rush came up with a nice block. I can't remember the last time the Chargers blocked a punt or FG, but it's been a LONG time.
Their run defense looked awful, carrying over from the Pats game in the playoffs. Missing Derwin James even hurts more here.
Offensive line is always a problem, until last year where Russell Okung helped a lot. Unfortunately he is out for at least 6 weeks and had another injury, and Trent Scott, the replacement was flat out awful, allowing people to get to Rivers all day, but everyone outside of the C is below average.
Pass D - While this is a strength with Derwin James, without him and an injury to starter Thomas Davis hurt, and they gave up too many pass plays too.
Punt returner dropped a punt and gave the Colts good field position, and kept the Chargers tired D on the field after a nice stop. Luckily the Colts came away with no points, missing a FG, but the defense was visibly more tired in the 4th because of those that.
I'll probably do the Cardinals later on down.
