1. Jamaal Williams
One player who did not lack any energy or effort was Jamaal Williams. Williams ran hard, and through people during this game.
Williams was his usual enthusiastic self on Sunday, dancing after the Packers’ lone touchdown, getting excited about a first down and being one of the few players who didn’t seem out of sorts.
A week after his breakout game, Aaron Jones couldn’t get going in this one on the ground nor as a receiver. In a game and on a day where almost everyone else seemed to just be going through the motions, Williams gave all he could.
Williams may have even had a run of the year candidate in the fourth quarter when he caught a pass in the flat and ran over three defenders as he refused to go down.
Williams was second on the team in receptions with six, while chipping in 39 yards and one touchdown. He only had two rush attempts but the Packers were chasing the Chargers for most of the game while also being stuck in long down-and-distances, so the lack of attempts is not on Williams.
Jones is getting most of the attention, and rightfully so, but Williams is proving to be just as important of a player.
