Last week heading into the game the question everyone was asking was “Will the Chargers go after Richard Sherman ?”

Well unlike Aaron Rodgers in Week One, the Chargers according to Philip Rivers completed five passes in Richard Sherman’s direction for a total of 60 yards.

After the game Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen told that Sherman’s not a “shutdown corner”.

"“He’s just a normal guy,” Keenan Allen said of Sherman. “We can go at him. We took some shots at him. We are not going to shy away from him. He’s not really a shutdown corner. We definitely wanted to come out and show we could go any way we wanted to and that we were in control of the game.”"

Keenan Allen who was matched one-on-one with Sherman throughout the game and had five catches for 55 yards, many of them coming on 3rd downs that kept the Chargers offense on the field.
