<p>Philip Rivers threw the air out of the football yesterday, but it still wasn’t enough for the Chargers. 503 yards on 43-of-65 passing, with 157 of those yards and 14 of those completions going to standout possession receiver Keenan Allen didn’t offset the Chargers’ struggles rushing the ball.</p> <p>The Chargers are stuck between the 2-3 Raiders and 1-5 Chiefs right now, and the main reason is because they aren’t lasting in tight games. Three of the Chargers’ four losses have been decided by a touchdown or less. Playing host to the silver and black next week is definitely a must-win if Mike McCoy wants to keep whispers of discontent at bay.</p>. AFC West. 2-4. San Diego Chargers. 10. player. 13

Next: 9. Cleveland Browns
