Philip Rivers completed 20-of-32 passes for 251 yards and two touchdowns in the Chargers' Week 11 win over the Bills.
Rivers did all of his damage in the first half, staking the Bolts to a 37-7 lead at halftime after Bills rookie QB Nathan Peterman threw five first-half picks. It set Rivers and company up in prime field position, and Rivers threw both of his touchdowns to Keenan Allen, who finished the day with a fine 12-159-2 line. None of the offensive stars played in the fourth quarter. Rivers will be a back-end QB1 on Thanksgiving Day against the Cowboys at JerryWorld. Nov 19 - 7:51 PM

Date:

Philip Rivers (concussion) is active for Week 11 against the Bills.

He was the only real notable injury question for the Bolts. Inactive for the Chargers are WR Geramy Davis, RB Branden Oliver, DE Chris McCain, LB Hayes Pullard, RT Joe Barksdale, TE Sean Caulkin, and LB James Onwualu.
Nov 19 - 2:47 PM

Philip Rivers (concussion) has been cleared to start Week 11 against Buffalo.

This was expected after Rivers practiced fully all week. He's passed the concussion protocol and will extend his streak to 186 consecutive games played. Rivers is Rotoworld's No.11-ranked quarterback for Week 11.
Nov 17 - 7:41 PM

Philip Rivers (concussion) is questionable for Week 11 against the Bills.

Despite the questionable listing, Rivers practiced all week and is fully expected to play, which would his extend his streak of consecutive games played to 186. Going against a Bills defense that yielded 47 points in a Week 10 loss to New Orleans, Rivers is in the QB1 conversation.
Nov 17 - 3:38 PM

Philip Rivers (concussion) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

It means Rivers has all but cleared the concussion protocol, and will be out there against the Bills. The start will be Rivers' 186th in a row. He's in the QB1 mix for Week 11.
Nov 16 - 6:39 PM

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn expects Philip Rivers (concussion) to play Week 11 against the Bills.

"We think he'll play, but that's up to the doctors," said Lynn. "That's not my decision." Rivers entered the concussion protocol following last week's loss to Jacksonville but has practiced on a limited basis this week and should be ready in time for Sunday's 4:05 PM ET start. If he plays, it would extend his steak of consecutive regular season starts to 186.
Nov 16 - 3:35 PM

Philip Rivers (concussion) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

He's still in the protocol and needs to pass it to play Sunday against Buffalo.
Nov 15 - 3:41 PM

Philip Rivers is in the league's concussion protocol.

It's unclear when Rivers may have suffered the concussion against the Jaguars on Sunday, as he wasn't even sacked and was hit just one time. He did get upended on a high-low combo early on, so that may have been it. Rivers didn't get any in-game tests done. If he can't play this week against the Bills, journeyman Kellen Clemens would get the nod. The Bills would be a D/ST streamer. Rivers said over the summer that he'd never been concussed in his 13-year career.
Nov 13 - 6:32 PM

Philip Rivers completed 21-of-37 passes for 235 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Chargers' Week 10 loss to the Jaguars.

Both of Rivers' touchdowns went to rookie RB Austin Ekeler, who did all the work on both plays, tight-roping the sideline on the first one from 28 yards out and then doing essentially the same on his second, that one a 22-yarder. Rivers actually did well considering the matchup. But his interception in overtime lost the game, as the Jaguars returned it to the two-yard line to set up the game-winning field goal. Rivers will be a borderline QB1/2 next week at "home" against the Bills.
Nov 12 - 5:09 PM

Philip Rivers completed 17-of-30 passes for 212 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's Week 8 loss to the Patriots.

With the Chargers having a one-play drive and allowing a safety, Rivers had his first half neutered, attempting just six passes prior to the half. His touchdown pass came in the fourth quarter on a 24-yard pass to Travis Benjamin while his turnover came on the final play of the game on a desperation pass that fell short of the end zone. The Chargers are on bye next week before Rivers faces a stout Jacksonville pass defense in Week 10.
Oct 29 - 5:54 PM

Philip Rivers completed 15-of-26 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns in the Chargers' Week 7 win over the Broncos.

Rivers had a mostly nondescript game against a tough defense, but he made some big throws when it mattered including a big third-and-11 conversion to Hunter Henry to keep the clock moving in the fourth quarter and a 42-yard touchdown later in that drive to kill off the game. Travis Benjamin did most of the work on that score, and Rivers' first touchdown was just a dump-off in the flat to Austin Ekeler in the second quarter. They all count, however, and Rivers now has multiple scores in three of his last four games. He will look to keep that going in a great matchup against the Patriots next week.
Oct 22 - 7:28 PM

Philip Rivers completed 25-of-36 passes for 268 yards and one touchdown while losing four yards on two carries Sunday in the Chargers’ Week 6 win over the Raiders.

He was sacked once for a loss of five yards. It wasn’t vintage Rivers, but he got the job done and didn’t commit any of the famously ill-timed turnovers he’s become known for in recent years. Rivers was money in the second half, throwing for 138 yards after the break including 57 on two-of-two passing on the game’s final drive. Both completions went to Hunter Henry, who finished with a career-high 90 yards on five catches. Rivers’ lone touchdown pass came on a six-yard screen to Melvin Gordon early in the fourth quarter. He’s fared much better over the past two games (both victories), but may have trouble keeping that momentum next week in a brutal matchup with Denver.
Oct 15 - 9:12 PM

Philip Rivers completed 21-of-44 passes for 259 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the Chargers' 27-22, Week 5 win over the Giants.

Rivers also fumbled a ball he had to bat out of the end zone for a safety. Frankly, the Chargers were well on their way to 0-5 until the Giants suffered four wide receiver injuries. For his part, Rivers started out the game in brutal fashion, but got cooking as the afternoon wore on. He looked good in the second half, making some of his best throws of the season, including a back-foot, 25-yard touchdown to Hunter Henry. The Raiders are an appetizing matchup for Week 6.
Oct 8 - 5:08 PM

Philip Rivers completed 22-of-38 passes for 347 yards and two touchdowns in the Chargers' 26-24, Week 4 loss to the Eagles.

The Chargers are now 0-4, including 0-3 at "home," their 27,000-seat soccer stadium that has been invaded by visiting fans each week. Today was like an Eagles-branded cruise getaway, with rowdy Philly fans making life difficult for the Chargers on offense. It's a sad spectacle for Chargers players who had nothing to do with the Bolts bolting San Diego. As for Rivers, the Chargers might have sprung the "road" upset, but he began the game by losing a fumble. He was turnover free thereafter — ripping plenty of chunk gains — but the damage was done in a tight contest. Rivers has a tough Week 5 setup, as the Chargers will be flying from the Southwest to the Northeast to take on the Giants.
Oct 1 - 7:21 PM

Phillip Rivers completed 20-of-40 passes for 237 yards with three interceptions Sunday in the Chargers’ Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

Rivers nearly had a fourth interception off a deflected pass in the fourth quarter, though the call was changed to an incompletion on review. Either way, it was a dismal performance from Rivers, who was picked off three times in the first half and never showed even the slightest semblance of rhythm with any of his receivers. A gunslinger if there ever was one, Rivers insisted on challenging the Chiefs with deep passes downfield, an approach that backfired spectacularly. Rivers has now thrown an incredible 21 interceptions over his last 12 games going back to last season. It will be hard to trust him even in an inviting home matchup against the Eagles next week.
