TE David Johnson - San Diego Chargers
|6-3, 260||Born: 8-26-1987||College: Arkansas State||Drafted: Round 7|
Week 16: at San Francisco 49ers
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Philip Rivers threw 24/41 for 232 yards passing, one TD and two interceptions vs. Denver last week - he did find Antonio Gates for a TD (seven targets for 6/54/1 receiving), but watched Keenan Allen get carted off the field with a broken collarbone (he's almost surely out for several weeks). Michael Floyd (seven for 3/34/0 last week) and Eddie Royal (four for 3/27/0) will have to pick up the slack for Allen over the final two weeks of the season. The Chargers' passing attack is suffering injury attrition (Rivers is battling a sore chest and ribs to stay in the games as well). San Francisco limited Seattle to 12/24 for 138 net yards passing, one TD and one interception last week, and sacked Russell Wilson five times for -30 yards. Two weeks ago, Derek Carr ambushed the 49ers in the Black Hole, throwing 22/28 for 245 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions (with one sack taken for -9 yards). Most weeks, teams have a harder time throwing the ball on San Francisco than Carr did - they average 206.0 net passing yards allowed per game (third in the NFL) with 23 passing scores given out vs. 17 interceptions (tied-fifth) and 32 sacks (tied-19th) generated to date. This is a tough matchup for the visiting Chargers.
