Chargers running back Ryan Mathews had a season-high 127 yards rushing and a touchdown. Mathews has stayed healthy this year and it’s paid off, already eclipsing 1,000 yards. He’ll never be a three-down back with Danny Woodhead in the fold but he can be productive.
Chargers rookie receiver Keenan Allen had only two catches but both were for touchdowns. He’s easily been the top rookie receiver and should hope Ken Whisenhunt sticks around as offensive coordinator.
Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan had 10 more tackles to give him 114 on the year. He’ll be just 24 entering next year and should continue to be as productive for the foreseeable future.
