Gore rushed for 144 yards on 25 carries. He averaged 5.8 yards per attempt. Gore was constantly moving the chains forward, with only two of his carries going for negative yards. He was also able to show some speed, breaking off two runs that went for at least 20 yards. He wasn't much of a threat in the passing game, picking up two receptions for 5 yards.
With the performance, Gore went over 1,000 yards rushing for the eighth time in his career. He also became the 20th player to reach 11,000 rushing yards over his career. Gore finished with 1,106 rushing yards and four touchdowns.
With Hyde out, veteran
Going against a defense that was strong against the pass but weak against the run, the
Of course, the increased workload may have had something to do with the absence of backup Carlos Hyde, who had been cutting into Gore's carries in recent weeks, with moderate effectiveness. Hyde is sidelined for an unspecified amount of time with an ankle injury.
Gore's performance may have earned him a bigger workload Week 17 against Arizona regardless. The Cardinals defense is kind of the opposite of the Chargers, though. It's much more effective against the run than the pass.
If nothing else, you at least have some hope for Gore making a relevant contribution in Week 17, but because the matchup isn't as favorable, he's still probably a sit in typical 12-team leagues.
Both numbers represent season highs for Gore, who hasn't had a better rushing day since the 2009 season. He set the tone early, shaking off would-be tacklers en route to a 52-yard score less than two minutes into the game. Gore continually proved difficult to tackle, as he would have managed his third 100-yard game of the season even without the long touchdown.
Gore is now up to 962 rushing yards and four rushing scores on 230 carries. He has a reasonable shot at cracking the 1,000-yard mark in his team's Week 17 matchup with the Cardinals.
Both players were listed as questionable on the team's final injury report, though it was reported early Saturday that Gore would in fact suit up for the game. Crabtree has yet to miss a game this season.
