Brandon Taylor will start against Jets The future is now. Chargers rookie Brandon Taylor is expected to start Sunday against the Jets. The third-round pick from LSU played a career-high 16 snaps in last week's loss to the Panthers. On Wednesday, Taylor said these final two games are an opportunity to be evaluated. “If I do (start), I'll be very excited,” Taylor said. “I would just have to control my emotions because I'd be so anxious to make a play. I've just got to calm down, play my assignment and react to my keys, and I'll be in the right situation to make a play.” Corey Lynch will continue to be involved in the team's nickel defense.
