  • Rivers completed 26 of 38 passes for 313 with two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Chargers' 29-28 win over the Chiefs on Thursday. He also threw a game-winning two-point conversion pass to Mike Williams with four seconds remaining. The veteran QB helped the Chargers to what will likely be the most memorable win of their season by overcoming multiple obstacles and leading Los Angeles to 15 fourth-quarter points to seal the victory. Rivers lost Keenan Allen to a hip injury in the first half, but he was able to make do by connecting with the quartet of Mike Williams, Tyrell Williams, Travis Benjamin and Antonio Gates for a total of 19 completions and a pair of scores. Rivers saved his best for last, leading an 11-play, 75-yard scoring march that closed the gap to 28-21, and then conducting an eight-play, 60-yard drive in which he completed a key fourth-down pass to Benjamin and then connected with Mike Williams for both a one-yard touchdown and a subsequent game-winning two-point conversion pass. The 300-yard tally was Rivers' first in the last four games, and the contest served as his 13th with multiple touchdown passes over 14 games this season. With the Chargers now having caught the Chiefs in the standings at 11-3, Rivers will face another formidable challenge in a Week 16 Saturday night showdown against the Ravens.

  • Rivers completed 19 of 29 passes for 220 yards and a touchdown in the 26-21 victory over the Bengals on Sunday. The Chargers were able to move the ball effectively between the 20s, but the absence of Melvin Gordon (knee) seemed to stymie what has otherwise been an efficient red-zone offense this season, drastically limiting Rivers' touchdown potential. As a result, the veteran quarterback failed to throw for at least two touchdowns for the first time this campaign, and he posted his fifth-lowest completion percentage in 2018 to boot. His path won't exactly get easier Thursday night against the Chiefs, particularly if safety Eric Berry (heel) makes his return to the field as expected.

  • Rivers completed 26 of 36 pass attempts for 299 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's 33-30 win over the Steelers. The Chargers' offense was stymied on the road for the better part of three quarters, but Rivers caught fire over the final 14 minutes of the contest and rallied the team to victory. The 37-year-old played within himself, showing his elite accuracy on a bevy of short and medium throws during the late flurry. Rivers has now matched last season's 28-touchdown mark in four less games as he continues to prove that he can play at an elite level even with diminished arm strength. The veteran's fantasy owners will be licking their chops when they see Cincinnati and their 31st-ranked pass defense on the docket for Week 14.

  • Rivers completed 28 of 29 passes for 259 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 45-10 win over the Cardinals. He also fumbled once. You couldn't tell by the final score, but the Chargers actually trailed 10-0 at the end of the first quarter as Rivers and company struggled to move the ball. That changed dramatically in the second quarter thanks in large part to the veteran quarterback's heroics, as Rivers would go on to complete his first 25 passes in the contest, an NFL single-game record. Rivers' 96.6 percent completion rate also set a single-game record for quarterback's who attempted at least 20 passes, capping off a historic performance. Rivers figures to have a more difficult matchup next week when the Chargers travel to take on the Steelers.

  • Chargers' Philip Rivers: Tops 400 passing yards
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rivers completed 28 of 43 pass attempts for 401 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions during Sunday's 23-22 win over the Broncos. Rivers completed 65 percent of his pass attempts and spread the ball around to seven different receivers as he topped 400 passing yards for the second time this season. He completed touchdown passes to Keenan Allen and Antonio Gates on either side of halftime, but he threw multiple interceptions for the first time this season, including a costly one that sparked Denver's comeback in the third quarter. The veteran now has multiple touchdown passes in every game this season and is capable of piling up yardage when the game script calls for it. He'll look to keep it going next Sunday against the Cardinals.
