Herbert was responsible for all three Chargers touchdowns — one passing and two rushing — for his first career multi-touchdown rushing game. Tackle Foster Sarell played two offensive snaps an extra lineman.

— Joshua Palmer led all receivers in snaps with 56 and receiving yards with 77, none bigger than his 51-yard reception with under two minutes left that sealed the game for the Bolts. Keenan Allen, who was coming off a historic performance last week, played 49 snaps and caught his third touchdown pass of the season. A pair of rookies were next in line in snaps played, as first-rounder Quentin Johnston played his highest number of snaps yet (33) and fourth-round rookie Derius Davis played 12. Keelan Doss, who was elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's game, rounded out the group with five offensive snaps.

— The Bolts defense had three players play all 73 defensive snaps: linebacker Kenneth Murray, Jr., Raheem Layne and Dean Marlowe. Both Layne and Marlowe stepped up in a big way at the safety position with the absence of Derwin James, Jr., Alohi Gilman and JT Woods.

— Michael Davis and Asante Samuel, Jr. were close to playing every defensive snap, but finished the day just shy at 72. Davis was tied with a team-high eight tackles, while Samuel had one of the biggest plays of the game intercepting a pass near the goal line that put the Bolts in a prime position to finish the game. Ja'Sir Taylor was the other cornerback to get in on the action, playing 50 defensive snaps in Sunday's win.

— What a day it was for Khalil Mack, who finished with a franchise-record 6.0 sacks while also forcing two fumbles, one of which was recovered by the defense. Mack, along with rookie Tuli Tuipulotu, led all outside linebackers in snaps with 63, as they had to step up for Joey Bosa, who did not play in Week 4. Chris Rumph II played 16 snaps, recovering a fumble that would led to a touchdown drive. Andrew Farmer, who was elevated from the practice squad, played 10 defensive snaps as well.

— Linebacker Eric Kendricks made his return to the field Sunday and played 50 snaps, registering six combined tackles in his first game since Week 1. Nick Niemann also saw some action, playing 17 defensive snaps, while rookie Daiyan Henley rounded out the group playing one snap.
