Denzel Perryman up, Melvin Ingram down in Chargers' win

JACKSONVILLE, Fla -- A look at San Diego Chargers players who were “up” and those who were “down” in Sunday’s 31-25 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars:


Denzel Perryman: In his second career start, the rookie out of Miami led the Chargers with seven combined tackles and played very physically against the Jacksonville running game.

Philip Rivers: He completed 29 of 43 passes for 300 yards and four touchdowns. He also accomplished a couple of impressive milestones on Sunday. Rivers became the 17th quarterback in NFL history with 40,000 career passing yards, and also moved into 12th all time in passing touchdowns with 274. Rivers, who climbed past Hall of Famer Joe Montana with three touchdown passes in the first half, now has 40,166 career passing yards.

Antonio Gates: He finished with four catches for 53 yards, including two touchdowns.


Melvin Ingram: San Diego’s best pass-rusher played most of the game, but finished without a tackle or sack.

Trevor Robinson: He struggled in pass coverage and run blocking. At times Robinson was bowled over by Jacksonville nose tackle Roy Miller.

Eric Weddle: Playing with a pulled groin, Weddle was limited in his movement. Weddle battled, but he gave up a couple of big plays, including a 21-yard touchdown pass to Jacksonville tight end Julius Thomas. Weddle finished with four combined tackles.
