San Diego Chargers: Week 16 NFL Power Rankings (#24)

Last week: 17 (+7)

Record: 5-9

Net points per drive: -0.23 (22nd)

DVOA: -11.8% (23rd)

Weighted DVOA: -10.3% (24th)

The Chargers are 5-9 with 2 winnable games left on the schedule. The problem is, they don’t win winnable games. They’ve lost their last 4 games and 7 of their last 8 when favored or as small underdogs. They somehow beat Pittsburgh as huge underdogs, when the the game seems winnable, they don’t seem to get it done. They should be able to beat the Raiders week 17, but the key word is should. Even with a game against the Jets this week, I think they’re most likely to finish 6-10.
