Mathews carried 21 times for 110 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Chargers' win over Jacksonville. He was not targeted in the passing game, making three straight weeks he has been without a reception.
Mathews suddenly has back-to-back 100-yard rushing performances and found the end zone for the first time in five weeks. The former first round pick is now averaging 4.0 yards per carry and has 446 rushing yards this season. He and the Chargers have a bye in Week 8, but will return to action in Week 9 against the Redskins' vulnerable defense.
