SAN DIEGO -- A look at San Diego Chargers players who were “up” and those who were “down” in Monday’s 22-19 loss to the Chicago Bears:


Danny Woodhead: He finished with 111 yards from scrimmage, including a 14-yard reception for a score. However, Woodhead did have two uncharacteristic drops on the night.

Philip Rivers: You can pretty much put him on this list every week. He finished 26-of-42 for 280 yards and a touchdown pass to Woodhead. Rivers was sacked twice during the final drive, but finished without an interception for the second straight game.

Eric Weddle: In his first game back since suffering a groin injury, Weddle led the Chargers with 13 combined tackles and also finished with a fumble recovery.


D.J. Fluker: The Chargers finished with eight accepted penalties for 54 yards. Fluker had three of them, including an ineligible player downfield call that negated an Antonio Gates touchdown. The Chargers had to settle for a Josh Lambo 22-yard field goal.

Stevie Johnson: He spiked the ball in frustration after failing to break a tackle on an in route to get into the end zone. Instead of first-and-goal from the 4-yard line, the Chargers received a delay of game penalty and the ball marked five yards back on Chicago’s 9. San Diego settled for a field goal on the drive. With Keenan Allen out, Johnson totaled seven receptions for 68 yards.
