Through three games the Chargers are averaging a pitiful 2.4 yards per carry average (worst in the NFL), but their 97 handoffs places them fifth in attempts.
Last week that reliance proved faulty.
Brown had 31 rushes for 62 yards (2.0 yards per rush), becoming only the third player in NFL history to have more than 30 rushes in a game and average two or fewer yards per rush.
Offensive coordinator Frank Reich, however, lives by the "if at first you don't succeed try, try, try again" motto.
"Certainly, our run game has been sub-par," Reich said, per U-T San Diego. "But here's what I know: We have a lot of confidence in what we're doing. We have a lot of confidence in the players we have doing it. Even last week, as bad as the run game was in the sense of averaging 2 yards a carry, we're still getting runs called. We're going to keep calling them."
