Week 14 NFL Power Rankings

Randall Cobb

11. San Diego Chargers (LW: 15)

If San Diego makes the postseason, they will have surely earned their berth. Trailing by six in Baltimore, the Chargers pulled off an improbable comeback and moved into the fifth seed in the AFC, one game behind Denver in the AFC West. The win in Baltimore was absolutely critical to keeping the team’s playoff hopes alive, but the Chargers still have a gauntlet of deadly teams ahead of them. With a one-game cushion on its pursuers, San Diego will have to survive New England, Denver, San Francisco, and Kansas City.
