    Chargers' Philip Rivers: Struggles in blowout loss

    Rivers completed 19 of 30 passes for 178 yards with no touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 33-3 blowout loss to the Chiefs. Rivers has now struggled in back-to-back games, as key injuries to the Chargers' wide receiver group are starting to take a toll. It doesn't help that there has been hardly any production from the Chargers' running game (Melvin Gordon had 15 carries for just 37 yards Sunday), putting all of the weight on Rivers' shoulders. The team's offensive line is also a major issue, as Rivers was under constant pressure once again Sunday. However, even with all of the offensive issues Rivers is dealing with, he's probably too good to bench, unless you have a superior option. In any event, he's got a great matchup in Week 12, facing the Jaguars in Jacksonville.

    Chargers' Philip Rivers: 280 yards and touchdown Monday

    Rivers completed 26-of-42 passes for 280 yards and one touchdown in Monday night's loss to the Bears. Rivers did the best he could with a patchwork group of wide receivers and a similarly depleted offensive line Monday night. Often, Rivers was forced to get rid of the ball early, resulting in just 6.67 yards per attempt, his second-lowest mark of the season. That prevented Rivers from continuing his streak of five straight games with at least 300 passing yards, but Rivers at least came close, and didn't turn the ball over Monday. Now with a bye week for the Chargers to integrate new pieces, Rivers returns in Week 11 with a matchup against the Chiefs.

    Chargers' Philip Rivers: 300 yards and three TDs not enough

    Rivers completed 28-of-37 passes for 301 yards and three touchdowns Sunday against the Ravens. Rivers connected with 10 different receivers, throwing two touchdowns to Malcom Floyd and one to Keenan Allen, the latter of whom appeared to re-injure his hip flexor on the score, though the team announced it was just spasms. Rivers has now thrown for at least 300 yards in five consecutive games, posting a 13:3 TD:INT ratio over that span. Up next is a Week 10 matchup against a Bears defense that is allowing just 220.0 passing yards per game this season (sixth fewest in the league), though their 15 passing touchdowns allowed is tied for the second-most.

    Chargers QB Philip Rivers posts big numbers in garbage time

    Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers completed 38 of 58 passes for 336 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 37-29 loss. He also threw a pair of interceptions. Rivers was coming off the most prolific game of his career, but he looked completely out of sorts in the first half, missing tons of a throws against a below average secondary. His first interception was not his fault, although his second pick came on a poor throw to Keenan Allen. He was under a lot of pressure, as the Chargers' offensive line continues to struggle, but for some reason it affected him more than usual Sunday. He was able to rack up the yardage and toss a couple of touchdowns in garbage time, however, to salvage his fantasy day. He'll have a juicy matchup in Week 8, at least on paper, facing a Ravens' defensive backfield that has been torched via the pass in 2015.

    Chargers' Philip Rivers: Historic performance in loss

    Rivers broke a number of Chargers' records in Sunday's 27-20 loss at Green Bay, completing 43-of-65 passes for 503 yards and two touchdowns. Rivers set a franchise record for completions, attempts and yardage Sunday, although he came up just short in a comeback bid. He had a chance to tie the game in the closing seconds, but could not get the ball in the end zone with a couple of cracks at it from inside the 10-yard line. The veteran QB was a beast throughout, so don't think his performance was aided by garbage time statistics, as he hooked up early and often with WR Keenan Allen, who caught 14-of-15 targets for 157 yards, although Allen left the game with a hip injury and did not return. With or without Allen in Week 7, Rivers should find success at home next week against a beatable Raiders' secondary.

    Chargers QB Philip Rivers throws for 365 yards in loss

    Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers completed 35 of 48 passes for 365 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the defeat to Pittsburgh on Monday night. Rivers hooked up with long-time favorite target Antonio Gates on both his scoring strikes, but otherwise distributed his targets incredibly well. He completed at least five passes to five different players, helping him set a season-high with 35 completions. Similarly, his whopping 365 yards marked the third time he's topped 350 yards in a game already this season. Although his lone interception was a pick-six, Rivers was still plenty productive and continues to rack up yardage in a pass-heavy offense.

    Chargers QB Philip Rivers throws 358 yards and three TDs in Week 4 win

    Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers completed 23 of 38 passes for 358 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 30-27 win over the Browns. Rivers was strong throughout, even without Stevie Johnson (hamstring) and Malcom Floyd (concussion), who both left due the game due to injuries. The veteran QB helped lead San Diego on a nice drive in the final two minutes of regulation, completing both of his pass attempts for 25 yards, setting up Josh Lambo for the game-winning field goal. Rivers and the Chargers will be at home against a beatable Steelers' secondary in Week 5.

    Chargers QB Philip Rivers throws one touchdown in Week 3

    Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers completed 21 of 34 passes for 246 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's game against the Vikings. He also lost a fumble in the 31-14 defeat. The turnovers were critical against the Minnesota defense, as Rivers threw an interception that was returned 91 yards for a score and fumbled to set the Vikings up in the red zone. The Chargers have now lost back-to-back road games after a win in the opener, and the veteran signal caller has already turned the ball over six times this season. Rivers and company will look to get back on track when they host the Browns in Week 4.

    Chargers QB Philip Rivers makes history, but struggles Sunday

    Chargers veteran quarterback Philip Rivers completed 21 of 37 passes for 241 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a Sunday loss to host Cincinnati. Rivers came two completions short of matching the NFL record for consecutive completions and broke Dan Fouts' franchise record for touchdown throws. But aside from his dates with history, Rivers was contained by the Bengals' defense, turning the ball over twice and taking four sacks. His relative struggles could be attributed, in part, to his failure to establish his usual rapport with Keenan Allen, who only totaled two receptions for 16 yards. He did, however, find Stevie Johnson and Malcom Floyd for scoring strikes in the second half. Rivers will be up against a fairly similar defense next week, as the Chargers travel to visit the Vikings, coached by former Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer.

In the fourth quarter, Rivers found Ladarius Green with a 13-yard pass to give the Chargers their first lead of the game, and they would hang on for the victory. The Chargers will travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals in Week 2.
