Chargers' defense rising to occasion by forcing takeaways

Justin Herbert has continued to earn the lion's share of attention for the Los Angeles Chargers during their 2-1 start. The defense also deserves its share of the credit as well.

The Chargers lead the league with 30 points off takeaways. Three of their four touchdowns in Sunday's 30-24 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs came off turnovers.

Los Angeles is tied for third with six takeaways. That is also its most in the first three games since 2016, which was also six.
