Below you will find a Week 10 roundup for the Chargers in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 20

For Chargers fans, it's no fun to lose. And it's amazing how they find new ways to cause heartbreak each week. But the high-level consistency that Justin Herbert continues to play with should be celebrated. The worst teams to watch are boring and mediocre. The Chargers are entertaining and mediocre and have an amazing rookie quarterback who is a joy to watch. That counts for something.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 25

Once again, they lost a close game. It never changes, only the script to get there.

USA Today -- Rank: 24

They've surrendered 159 points over their last five games ... hence all the "bad luck" and squandered Justin Herbert performances.

ESPN -- Rank: 23

Recalibrated expectation: Learn how to win close games

The Chargers are close, but that only counts in horseshoes, really. There were high expectations and Justin Herbert has created some more, but he needs some help if they are to reach their potential. Also, Anthony Lynn needs to keep his job and needs to pull out some wins to do that. He's a players' coach and that counts, especially with a team riddled with injuries and a rookie QB. -- Shelley Smith -- Rank: 18

It keeps happening. It won't stop. The Chargers always find a way. On Sunday, L.A. was celebrating a game-winning touchdown catch by Donald Parham Jr. ... until officials overturned the call after a review in a 31-26 loss to the Raiders. In true Chargers form, it took the sixth or seventh replay to finally show clear evidence that the ball had slipped out of Parham's hands as he went to the ground. Egads. There are two ways to look at this as a fan: You're either head-over-heels in love with the possibility of the Justin Herbert era, or you're locked in a present where Sundays are continually ruined by heartbreak. Where you fall on that spectrum probably says a lot about your outlook on life in general.
