Mathews had seven carries for 34 yards Sunday against the Washington Redskins. He was once again not a factor in the passing game, as he was held without a catch for the fourth time in as many games.
Mathews had appeared to turn a corner, posting back-to-game games with more than 100 yards before the Chargers bye, but regressed to the pre-Week 7 version of Mathews. Things do not get much better in Week 10 for Mathews, as San Diego hosts Denver and will presumably have to throw the ball to stay in the game with Peyton Manning and company.
