Chargers | Antonio Gates held in check
San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates had only three catches for 31 yards in the team's Week 14 win, and he has been held to under 50 yards since Week 9. Gates has had four or fewer receptions in 10 of his 12 games this year. Gates was targeted eight times in Week 14, but he dropped a deep pass and wasn't able to gain separation from Pittsburgh Steelers LB Lawrence Timmons over the middle. The extra burst that Gates used to leave single coverage in the past appears to be gone. He's being double-teamed at times this year, too.
