Anthony Lynn saw firsthand the hard work Tyrell Williams put in from his office window at the team’s headquarters in Costa Mesa, California.

“He’s developing into a complete receiver,” Lynn said. “And he works at it. His work ethic is about as good as anyone on this team.”

Drops and winning contested catches were issues for Williams in 2017, something he worked diligently to correct during the offseason.

“I’m still working on it every day, being one of the things I really wanted to get better at,” Williams said. “I’ll continue to work on that as it’s nice to see it come to fruition in the game.”

The Chargers drafted Mike Williams in the first round last year. Tyrell Williams is in a contract year and looking to put his best foot forward this season.

Speaking of Mike Williams, he also showed up in a big way, catching a 55-yard corner route for his fourth touchdown of the season.

With Gordon out, the Chargers struggled to run the football, finishing with just 48 rushing yards.

Philip Rivers did a good job of managing the offense and creating big plays down the field, finishing 19 of 26 for 306 passing yards, two touchdown passes and no interceptions.
