SAN DIEGO — SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Chargers get to head into their bye week riding a minor two-game hot streak.

Since losing to the Oakland Raiders on Oct. 6, the Chargers have played their best football as Philip Rivers continues to shine — he's the NFL's No. 2 ranked quarterback — and the defense remains stingy — 11 consecutive quarters without allowing a touchdown.

The Chargers' offense has come alive under coach Mike McCoy, the former Denver Broncos offensive coordinator.

With Rivers completing 74 percent of his passes, the unit is ranked in the top five in yards per play, passing net yards per play, first downs per game and third-down efficiency.
