got his first interception of the year in a 27-24 win over the St. Louis Rams. His interception of Shaun Hill with 59 seconds left saved the game for the Chargers. He also had seven tackles on the day.

Star safety Eric Weddle told ESPN after the game that Gilchrist is such a versatile player for the Chargers. "Gilchrist is one of the most important players on our defense because of how much he can do," Weddle said. "He plays the nickel. He plays safety. He lets me roam around because he can do so much, which lets me do my thing. So for him to win the game like that, guarding his guy and seeing his guy blocked, and then just having great vision and instincts -- those are the plays you want a guy to make in that situation."

For the season, Gilchrist has 48 tackles, a sack, an interception, five pass deflections and a forced fumble.
