Unsurprisingly, head coach Mike McCoy addressed how he believed it was the unit’s worst showing of the season when speaking with the media Monday.
McCoy says the production of the offense yesterday was “as poor as we’ve played as an offense all year.”

Statistically, it was the worst game of the season for Philip Rivers, who threw for a season-low 178 yards, completing 19 of 30 passes with an interception. Both the completions and attempts were season-lows for Rivers. It also marked the first game this season that Rivers did not throw for a touchdown. Ironically, on the day the team honored running back LaDainian Tomlinson, they struggled mightily to run the ball. Melvin Gordon led the team with 37 yards on 15 carries. Rivers was the team’s second-leading rusher with 8 yards on four attempts. Danny Woodhead carried the ball six times while netting seven yards.
“We haven’t run the ball efficiently the way we want. We need to get better at it. No denying that one bit.” -McCoy — San Diego Chargers (@Chargers) November 23, 2015
McCoy also mentioned the team will explore all options to help and enhance the run game.
The Chargers traded up to the No. 15 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft to take Gordon. He has yet to eclipse the 100-yard mark or score a touchdown in his rookie season.
Next up for the Chargers is a road contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars at 10 a.m. next Sunday. The team currently sits in last place in the AFC West, two games behind the third-place Oakland Raiders.
