Ryan Mathews ran for 102 yards on 22 carries, it was his first 100-yard game of the season.
Monday marked the first time Mathews surpassed the century mark in yards since December 12th, 2011, the third to last game that year. Mathews rushed for more than 80 yards just once all of last season. So this output is a pleasant surprise, especially if you consider his longest run was only 15 yards. The Chargers have one of the more favorable schedules going forward, so the possibility looms that there could be more games like this in the future for Mathews, if he can stay healthy of course.
