The Los Angeles Chargers concluded the 2019 season without a trip to the playoffs, but there were still some players and moments that stood out.
The Chargers finished the season 5-11 but they were only outscored by their opponents by eight total points on the season, showing how close many of their games were. By comparison, the Oakland Raiders, who finished with two more wins than the Chargers, were outscored by 106 points.
The Chargers also had no home-field advantage, something that has been a trend since the move to L.A. They went just 2-6 this season at Dignity Health Sports Park. The team will move into SoFi Stadium next year.
But there are positives to take from every season and that is what will be focused on here.
Despite a losing record, there were some players who had great individual seasons and put forth great individual efforts. It is these performances that will be the foundation for rebuilding this team going forward.
It will be one of the most interesting offseasons in quite some time for this team but before there is any more talk of what will happen in the future, let’s take one last look back at this past season and celebrate some of the good that went down on the field.
There were plenty of disappointments in 2019. Philip Rivers had one of his worst years in what could have been his last with the team. Melvin Gordon‘s holdout was poorly timed and did his team no favors and then injuries hurt the team in several spots once more.
But this will be to celebrate the best plays and best performances and give Chargers fans some reason for optimism.
With that, we present the 2019 end of season awards for the Chargers.
