Los Angeles Chargers Rank 11th in ESPN’s Pre-Season Power Index If you haven’t been tuning in , this is officially the doldrums of the NFL offseason.There aren’t many areas that our favorite teams can compete with each other during baseball season, but there are still ways we can cheer our teams on:Power Rankings!ESPN released its first ‘official’ Football Power Index for the 2018/2019 season.These rankings are more than just writer opinions—they take in offense, defense, QB, backup QB, returning starters, and Vegas Sportsbook numbers to tabulate their ranking system.The Vegas projections are already one of the most accurate ways to gauge next-year success, but ESPN modifies those numbers with personnel turnover in mind.The Chargers come in at number 11 on the list Womens Darius Philon Jersey , which is already a pretty good sign for the team.What is even more impressive is that only the Patriots and the Steelers are above them in the AFC.Other than the Eagles snuggling between those at ,2# these impressive teams make up the top 3.The Chiefs hit the board at #13.ESPN.comSuper Bowl Bound?The Football Power Index also prognosticates postseason chances, and their findings might be of interest to Chargers fans.They mark the Chargers at 8.7 wins in 2018.They also predict a 54% chance of reaching the playoffs, 37% chance of clinching the division, 8% chance of making the Super Bowl, and 4% chance of winning the whole darn thing.If that sounds a bit low, it is because nothing is a sure thing in the NFL.The Chiefs have an 8.6 wins/51%/33%/7%/3% stat line for the same.The Raiders have a 20% chance of winning the division, and the Broncos are looking at a 10% chance. Interestingly Womens Russell Okung Jersey , aside from the Packers, there is only one other team favored by the FPI calculations to win its division that didn’t win it last year: the Chargers (37%).The Packers did not have Aaron Rodgers very much last year, so don’t underestimate this stat.All of that said, my analysis of these numbers doesn’t necessarily indicate an incredible leap in odds for the Chargers this year.Instead, I think that we’ve seen the Chiefs, Broncos, and Raiders all get worse since the beginning of last season.The Chargers have maintained their status quo and/or improved, and should be very optimistic about this coming season.-Jason “Another winning week in the books” Michaels Oakland Raiders middle linebacker Marquel Lee has no plans to apologize for his scuffle last week with Los Angeles Chargers tight end Antonio Gates late in the fourth quarter.If anything , Lee is adamant he did the right thing even though it resulted in a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty and a quick admonishment from Raiders coach Jon Gruden."He just told me I'm better than that," Lee said. "I was defending myself. Guy had my helmet. I don't care who you are, you're not going to chump me or punk me. I'm a grown man, too. Coach Gruden was just like, 'Keep your cool. You're better than that.'"A fifth-round pick in 2017, Lee is proving to be better than many people thought. His dust-up with Gates was one of the few signs that Oakland's defense still had some fight in it during the 26-10 loss that dropped the Raiders to 1-4.Lee has taken quickly to defensive coordinator Paul Guenther's system and played well enough over the first month of the season to unseat 14-year veteran and four-time Pro Bowl middle linebacker Derrick Johnson as the team's starter.Heading into Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks in London, Lee is third on the Raiders in tackles behind linebacker Tahir Whitehead and safety Marcus Gilchrist."He's done some good things," Guenther said. "He's progressing in the right direction. Obviously he is playing a lot now so we are counting on him."It's a stark contrast from a year ago when Lee had to be carted off the field with a right knee injury that sidelined him for two weeks. Already behind the learning curve at the time Youth Caleb Sturgis Jersey , the injury prevented Lee from making much of an impact and led to the Raiders signing NaVorro Bowman to play middle linebacker the rest of the season.Bowman wasn't re-signed this past offseason but Oakland brought in Johnson, the former Kansas City Chiefs star, and penciled him into the starting lineup early in training camp.Johnson started the first game of the regular season and took the majority of reps in Week 2 before Lee forced a change with his consistent work in practice and games."I noticed it a lot with my play," Lee said. "Just not as much anxiety on myself, and not much panic. Playing calm, to be honest. Just seeing everything slower and making my plays when I need to."The Raiders are 30th in total defense and have had a penchant for allowing big plays. Lee has made his share of mistakes, most notably blitzing against the Chargers on a screen play when it wasn't called for. The result: a 34-yard gain on a day full of breakdowns by Oakland's defense."The margin for error is small in this game," Lee said. "I feel like we have a great sense of urgency , especially after last week's loss, seeing the plays that we gave up and could have held onto to win the game."The Raiders don't seem to mind the growing pains with their young inside linebacker. Lee's progress on defense while also playing extensively on special teams has been a positive in an otherwise disappointing start for the team.Lee's challenge this week will be trying to contain Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson."We know that he's a good scrambler and he makes plays in the open field," Lee said. "We plan to keep him in the pocket and keep him corralled, not give him much room to run because that's when he's most dangerous, when he's out of the pocket."Notes: The Raiders held a brief and light practice Thursday before departing for London where they will play the Seahawks at Wembley Stadium. ... Starting left guard Kelechi Osemele (knee) missed a third consecutive day of practice. Jon Feliciano has been practicing in Osemele's place. Defensive tackle Frostee Rucker (neck) also sat out Thursday.
