Going into week 3 the Chargers defense had yet recorded a sack, that changed in a hurry as they sacked Lawson 5 times en route to a 21-0 victory. Only allowing 31 total offense, while constantly forcing Lawson to make untimely passes, Chargers head coach Kris Mims was quoted "The boys stepped up today, offensively we were effective on the ground. However our defense set the tone" Scoring in each of the first 3 quarters, San Diego mounted drives of 11 plays, 12 plays and 8 plays in their scoring opportunities. Another effective day for journeymen QB Matt Barkley, who completed only 50% of his passes, however connecting on 2 touch downs and no turnovers. Ryan Matthews added over 100 yards on the ground as he continues to be a monster to tackle.
