The 2013 San Diego Chargers season was the franchise's 44th season in the National Football League (NFL), the 54th overall, and the 1st under head coach Mike McCoy. The Chargers finished the regular season with a record of 9–7, improving on their 7–9 record from 2012. Also, they qualified for the playoffs for the first time since 2009. The Chargers defeated the Cincinnati Bengals in the Wild Card round by a score of 27–10, but lost to the Denver Broncos in the Divisional round by a score of 24–17.

The new head coach, Mike McCoy, along with offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, completed the Chargers' first winning season since 2010. Only two offensive coaches returned from 2012 in an overhauled coaching staff, and a revamped offensive system had quarterback Philip Rivers release the ball earlier and taking what opposing defenses conceded. Rivers was sacked 30 times, compared to 49 the previous year, and threw for 4,479 yards and 32 touchdowns while tying a career high with a 105.5 passer rating. San Diego's rushing attack improved from the prior season's 1,461 yards and 3.6 yards per carry—tied for the second worst in the league—to 1,965 yards and a 4-yard average.[2] Although they were speculated to have a poor, disappointing season, and getting off to a shaky start, the Chargers finished in the top eight of the overall standings. Rivers was named NFL Comeback Player of the Year, and Keenan Allen broke out into the national scene as a rookie sensation, breaking multiple wide receiver rookie records. Whisenhunt left at the conclusion of the season to become the head coach of the Titans.

  3. ^ a b c d The Week 5 game at Oakland, originally scheduled at 1:25 p.m. PDT, was moved back to 8:35 p.m. PDT, and moved from CBS to the NFL Network, due to the Raiders' Major League Baseball counterparts, the Oakland Athletics, hosting Game 2 of the 2013 American League Division Series the previous night (October 5). The conversion of O.co Coliseum from a baseball to a football configuration necessitated the scheduling change. The game was produced by CBS staff using the announcer pairing of Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts, but was branded as a "special edition" of Thursday Night Football.[3]
