Rivers (chest, back) completed 24-of-41 passes for 232 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions, in Sunday's 22-10 loss to the Broncos.

Rivers led the Chargers to just three points through the first 50 minutes of the game, but tossed a nice five-yard touchdown to Antonio Gates in the fourth quarter. The veteran QB had another shot for a touchdown late in the game, but threw an interception in the end zone, once again trying to hook up with Gates. While it wasn't a great game for Rivers, he was missing his top weapon in Keenan Allen, who was knocked out of the contest with an ankle injury. Rivers will have his hands full next week against a tough 49ers' pass defense, whether Allen is available or not.

Rivers will predictably continue to play through his aches and pains, and if Sunday's home tilt turns into a high-scoring affair, the QB could put up some respectable Week 15 production against the Broncos.

Rivers completed 20-of-33 passes for 189 yards, with a touchdown and an interception, in Sunday's 23-14 loss to the Patriots. He added eight yards on three carries.

One week after pummeling the Baltimore defense, Rivers got off to a fast start against the Patriots, tossing a 15-yard touchdown pass to Malcom Floyd on the Chargers' second drive. It was all downhill from there, as Darrelle Revis completely took Keenan Allen out of the game, which made Rivers' life rather difficult. Week 15 brings another tough matchup, but Rivers did throw for three touchdowns in the first game against Denver, and he shouldn't lack for volume come Sunday.

As expected, Rivers, who is coming off a 383-yard passing effort in Week 13's win over the Ravens, is out there Sunday, and he'll go up against a Patriots' defense that is allowing an average of 251 passing yards per game thus far.

Rivers completed 34-of-45 passes for 383 yards, with three touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 34-33 win over the Ravens. He also added four carries for a season-high 19 rushing yards.

Rivers connected with seven different receivers, throwing two touchdowns to Keenan Allen and one to Eddie Royal, the last of which put the Chargers up by one with 38 seconds left, their first lead of the game. It was an excellent breakout performance after he threw only two touchdowns in his previous three games, which getting picked off four times in that span. He'll look to keep the positive play going in Week 14 against the Patriots, who allowed Aaron Rodgers to throw for 368 yards and two touchdowns Sunday.

Rivers (chest) completed 29-of-35 passes for 291 yards, with a touchdown and interception, in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Rams.

Rivers had a tidy 8.3 YPA, but he had just one attempt over 20 yards, as a large chunk of his passing yardage came after the catch. He was actually having a rough fantasy game, until his screen pass to Keenan Allen midway through the fourth quarter resulted in a 29-yard touchdown. Allen had one of his best games of the season, catching 6-of-8 targets for 104 yards, showing great moves in the open field on several receptions. Whether Rivers' lack of deep shots is due to his nagging ribs/chest injuries, or just the team's conservative play calling, he'll need receivers like Allen to perform well after the catch. In Week 13, Rivers will have a decent shot to post strong numbers against a beatable Ravens' secondary.
