RB Ronnie Brown - San Diego Chargers
|6-1, 223||Born: 12-12-1981||College: Auburn||Drafted: Round 1, pick 2|
Week 16: at San Francisco 49ers
Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Ryan Mathews missed the practice on Tuesday, so early indications are that he's not likely to appear on Saturday at Levi's Stadium as his problematic ankle continues to slow him. That means more of the sad-sack committee of Braden Oliver (12/26/0 rushing with 4/44/0 receiving), Donald Brown (5/18/0 rushing with 4/38/0 receiving) and Ronnie Brown (2/9/0 rushing) that we saw getting stuffed by the Broncos' rush D last week. The 49ers are good at stuffing opposing backs, ranking eighth in the NFL averaging 101.1 rushing yards allowed per game, with only seven rushing scores given up over 14 games. Last week, Seattle managed 32/152/1 rushing vs. San Francisco, while Oakland had 31/85/0 rushing two games back. The Chargers may wish they had Marshawn Lynch on their team, but they don't - advantage, San Francisco.

2014 Week 15 vs DEN (2 / 9 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
With Ryan Mathews on the shelf, Brown actually saw the field for a couple of plays, both of them fairly important. The first was a handoff on a draw play in the first half that put the team into field goal range, and the second was a 3rd and 1 carry that they converted for a first down. Aside from those two plays, however, Brown gave way to Branden Oliver and Donald Brown for the other 25 touches given to running backs.
