Not many people would confuse the players who make up the San Diego Chargers defense as superstars, but there are a few emerging playmakers along the defensive line.
Defensive end Corey Liuget leads that group in tackles with 32 and batted passes with six. Rookie defensive end Kendall Reyes leads the defensive line in quarterback pressures with 10 and quarterback hits with seven. And both players have two sacks each.
That’s why Ravens right guard Marshal Yanda wasn’t simply focusing on Liuget during the week of preparation for the Chargers.
“He’s a good player, but they’ve got a good front,” Yanda said. “I say it almost every Sunday, but they’ve got a good front, they’ve got a good group of linebackers. So we’ll have to do a good job of playing good football and executing.”Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
