Defensive end Joey Bosa sacked Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky twice Sunday, marking his second-straight game with two-plus sacks. This makes the fourth-year Pro Bowler the first Chargers player with back-to-back games with at least two sacks since linebacker Kevin Burnett did so in 2010. Bosa had a monster game against the Bears, also contributing four tackles for loss, three QB hits and seven tackles.
Tight end Hunter Henry recorded his 100th career reception Sunday, catching four passes for 47 yards. The Arkansas product now boasts six 20-plus-yard receiving plays this season in just four games, which is tied for second-most on the team.
Wide receiver Mike Williams led the Bolts in yards receiving in a game for the first time this season with 69 yards, including a 43-yard catch. The third-year wideout posted team-high receiving yard totals in three regular season games last season, as well as in the Chargers’ wild-card win in Baltimore.
Cornerback Casey Hayward recorded his 22nd career interception and second of the season Sunday. Since the start of the 2016 season, Hayward is tied for fourth in the league in interceptions.
Running back Melvin Gordon’s 19-yard touchdown in Chicago marks his longest run since returning to action four weeks ago. The scamper was his first rushing touchdown of the season and his second score in as many games.
On the Bears’ first three trips inside the Chargers’ 10-yard-line, the Bolts limited their opponents to field goals each time. Most impressively, Los Angeles kept Chicago out of the end zone after the home team had first and goal on the L.A. 1.
The Chargers posted a plus-one turnover differential Sunday against a Bears team that entered the contest tied for fifth-best in the category.
