After a historic comeback victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, a handful of Bolts were named to Pro Football Focus’ Team of the Week, which recognizes players who were among the best at their position through all of the week 13 contests.
The first Charger to be recognized was wide receiver Keenan Allen who hauled in 14 catches for 148 yards and a touchdown on a whopping 19 targets. All those numbers were also season-highs for the Slayer as he single-handedly kept the chains moving all night long.
Left tackle Russell Okung was the other Boltnamed to the offensive team after he received a grade 82.9, good for second-best among the five offensive linemen named to the team.
Okung was rock-solid on the night as he played a major role in keeping Philip Rivers fairly clean throughout the night.
