The Los Angeles Chargers suffered a crushing loss Thursday night, but don’t blame former South Carolina Gamecock Melvin Ingram.
Eight years into his career, the two-time Pro Bowler keeps showing why the Chargers took him 18th overall in the 2012 draft.
Ingram was a nuisance all night for a rising Oakland Raiders team, tallying a game-high seven tackles and two big sacks of quarterback Derek Carr.
On the season, Ingram has 27 tackles, 4½ sacks and 7 quarterback hits.
At this point in the season, the 3-10 Oakland Raiders are just looking to spoil other teams’ chances of making the playoffs.
