Keenan Allen is eighth in the league with 643 receiving yards after gaining 69 on eight receptions last week. The 31-year-old hauled in 16 passes for 145 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers’ 34-28 victory against the Jets in 2020.
Allen is tied with tight end Donald Parham Jr. for the team lead with four TD receptions this season.

Los Angeles entered Week 9 tied for ninth in the league with 23 sacks, with linebacker Khalil Mack ranking seventh in the league with seven and defensive end Morgan Fox, who is questionable with an oblique injury, notching five in as many games this year.

Why the Jets can coverBreece Hall will try to bounce back from two straight unproductive rushing performances in which he gained a total of 56 yards. Prior to the slump, the 22-year-old running back ran for 177 yards and a touchdown in the Jets’ 31-21 victory at Denver in Week 5. Hall has contributed to the team’s passing attack over the last two weeks, however, making five catches for 54 yards in a win over Philadelphia while hauling in six passes for 76 yards and a TD last week against the Giants.
The receiving score was a 50-yarder for Hall, making him the third player since 1991 with five 50-yard plays through his first 15 NFL contests. On the other side of the ball, safety Jordan Whitehead is tied for third in the league with a career-high three interceptions. Linebacker Quincy Williams has notched 55 solo tackles this season, the third-most in the NFL, and earned AFC Defensive Player of the Month honors for October after registering 45 tackles and two sacks over four games.
