San Diego Chargers: 2013 Week 8 NFL Power Rankings (#17)

Last week: 21 (-4)

Record: 4-3

An 18 point win in Jacksonville doesn’t sound that impressive, but this is a franchise used to letdown games after big wins in the Norv Turner era. They had one this year in new Head Coach Mike McCoy, losing in Oakland after beating Dallas, but they avoided it in a big way last week. They are still moving the chains at an incredible rate offensively, 83%, only behind Denver in that aspect. They aren’t great defensively, as opponents move the chains at a 79% rate, but their differential is still 8th in the NFL. Mike McCoy deserves a ton of credit for leading a team that doesn’t have a ton of talent to some impressive things and he deserves some Coach of the Year votes, especially if the Chargers can make an improbable playoff run in the AFC.
