Bengals vs. Chargers: PFF news and notes

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Taking a look at some of the news and notes on Sunday's game between the Bengals and Chargers from Pro Football Focus.

Tyler Eifert's report on the end of the season rookie report for first-rounders.

Analysis: Saw a lot of action in two tight end sets, with Jermaine Gresham doing the heavy lifting with the in line work and Eifert moving around more often. Unfortunately he looked lightweight in the run game and didn’t offset that with the kind of receiving production the team would have been hoping for. A mismatch that didn’t take advantage of that often enough.

From 32 observations:

Bengals

Wide receiver A.J. Green led the league in Deep Passing Yards at 586. He also led the league in Deep Passing Touchdowns at eight. He did this all on just 15 catches.

Chargers

Quarterback Philip Rivers led the league in Accuracy Percentage at 79.0%

  • In the four weeks since the Bengals played the Chargers, offensive tackle King Dunlap has dominated the running game to an overall grade of 14.9. D.J. Fluker has also significant improved since plyaing the Bengals, grading at +7.4 down the stretch.
  • Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton finished the season tacking sacks on just 18 percent of the time that he was pressured this year. Compare that to last year when he was sacked a league-worst 29.4 percent of the time when pressured.
  • Of Andy Dalton's 20 interceptions this year, 12 came on passes targeting A.J. Green. With only 11 touchdowns and 12 picks, Dalton's passer rating when throwing to A.J. Green was 76.8.
  • When Dalton targeted Marvin Jones, he threw 10 touchdowns and only three interceptions for a passer rating of 119.2.
  • Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap finished fifth in total pressures among all 4-3 defensive ends this season with 69. However, his pass rushing productivity score (pressures per rush) was 16th in the NFL at his position. Michael Johnson finished 24th.
