Week 12: vs St. Louis Rams
Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Ryan Mathews returned to give the Chargers a respectable rushing attack against the Oakland Raiders last week, knocking off some rust from his long layoff as he put up 16/70/0 rushing and 1/5/0 receiving during the contest. Backup Branden Oliver posted 13/36/0 rushing with 1/3/0 receiving in a complimentary role. Mathews was reported to limp in the locker room after the game, but there is no indication from the team that he took any sort of significant injury against the Raiders. We'll see what he can do in this contest against a surging St. Louis D.
The Rams shocked the world by holding the Broncos to seven points last week - they only gave up 10/28/0 rushing to the Broncos during the game, after limiting Arizona to 22/28/1 rushing two games ago. Forget the season averages - the Rams' defensive front has suddenly asserted dominance in this phase of the game.
Mathews and Oliver face a bad matchup in this game.
