— Quarterback Justin Herbert and the starting offensive line — left tackle Rashawn Slater, left guard Zion Johnson, center Will Clapp, right guard Jamaree Salyer and right tackle Trey Pipkins III — played all 58 offensive snaps during Monday night's win. Herbert did not have his biggest game statistically, but kept the ball out of harms way and didn't turn it over. Jordan McFadden played a pair of snaps lining up at fullback for a second consecutive week, while Foster Sarell came in for one snap as an extra offensive lineman.

— Wide receiver Keenan Allen led his position in snaps with 50 during his historic game where he became the second player in Chargers history to surpass the 10,000 receiving yard mark. Allen finished leading the team with eight receptions for 77 yards in the win. Rookie Quentin Johnston played the second-most snaps at 48, while Jalen Guyton played 33 snaps in his first game action since Week 3 of last season. Rookie Derius Davis (eight snaps) and Simi Fehoko (four snaps) rounded out the group.
