Philip Rivers QB SD 11 Days

Rivers completed 22-of-34 passes for 193 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 13-6 win over the Raiders.

Rivers hooked up with Malcolm Floyd on a 22-yard touchdown in the first minute of the game, but it was a struggle from that point on. Since throwing for 313 yards and three touchdowns in Week 6, Rivers has been in a little bit of a funk over the last four games, posting a 6:6 TD:INT ratio, with two performances under 200 passing yards. Next up for the veteran QB is St. Louis, which has been better at stopping the run than pass this season.

Though Rivers injured his right (throwing) hand in Sunday's 37-0 loss to the Dolphins, the issue wasn't the reason for his third quarter exit from the contest, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Per the report, the team's decision to pull Rivers late in the third quarter was related to the score of the game, adding that there has been no long-term concern expressed regarding the quarterback's hand issue as the Chargers head into their bye week. We'll let you know if that assessment changes.

Rivers suffered a hand injury Sunday against the Dolphins, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Prior to his exit Sunday, Rivers -- who was replaced by Kellen Clemens -- had completed 12-of-23 passes for 138 yards, with three interceptions. With the Chargers on bye next week, we'll track Rivers' status as the team's Week 11 contest against the Raiders approaches.

Rivers completed 30-of-41 passes for 252 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Thursday's 35-21 loss to the Broncos. He added 17 yards on his only carry.

Rivers played better than the stats indicate, as he was up against an excellent Denver defense, yet only took two sacks and didn't fumble. Neither of his interceptions was especially bad, as one was partially caused by Keenan Allen slipping, while the other came on a deep heave with the Chargers down by two scores late in the game. Rivers once again worked well around a shaky offensive line, and he notably found Allen for 78 yards and a touchdown on nine receptions, albeit with 13 targets needed to get there. Of course, even with Allen breaking out for just his second big game this season, Rivers spread the ball to a bunch of receivers, with Allen, Antonio Gates, Malcom Floyd and RB Branden Oliver each getting seven or more targets. Unfortunately for Rivers, next week brings another tough road matchup, this time in Miami.

Rivers completed 17-of-31 passes for 205 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 23-20 loss to Kansas City. He also threw an interception.

Rivers continues to play at a high level, tossing 16 touchdowns in his last six games, although the Chiefs did a good job of keeping him in check Sunday. His lone interception came in the closing seconds, as he was trying to force a big play, with San Diego trailing. He's got a tough matchup at Denver next week, but on the flip side, the game has the potential to be a shootout.

Rivers completed 22-of-34 passes for 313 yards with three touchdowns in Sunday's 31-28 win at Oakland. He was sacked just once and did not have any turnovers.

Rivers once again did a great job spreading things around, completing at least two passes to six different players. He's been playing at an incredibly high level this season, especially since a mediocre performance in Week 1, completing over 70 percent of his passes, while tossing 14 touchdowns in the last five games. He'll look to keep things rolling next week at home against Kansas City.

Rivers had another big game in Sunday's 31-0 win over the Jets, completing 20-of-28 passes for 288 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.

Rivers hurt his hand in the first half, but he didn't miss any action and it didn't seem to effect his play. In fact, he hooked up with Malcolm Floyd and Eddie Royal on a couple of nice deep balls. His interception came in the end zone, when Keenan Allen could not snag a jump ball, so it wasn't really a bad throw, as Allen just got outmuscled. San Diego finally got something positive out of the running game, as rookie Branden Oliver rushed for 114 yards on 19 carries with a touchdown. Oliver was also productive as a receiver, catching four balls for 68 yards with a touchdown, to give Rivers yet another weapon. Floyd left the game with a calf injury, but the injury didn't appear to be serious, and Rivers has been spreading things around to many different players anyway. He should be able to move the ball in Week 6, taking on a struggling Raiders' defense.

Rivers completed 29-of-39 passes for 377 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 33-14 win over Jacksonville.

Rivers threw two of his three touchdowns to Eddie Royal, and got Keenan Allen involved for the first time this year, hooking up with the second-year wide receiver 10 times for 135 yards. The veteran Rivers was mediocre in the season opener at Arizona, but has been sensational in three weeks since, averaging 306 yards and three touchdowns. He should have another big game in Week 5, facing an unimpressive Jets secondary.

Rivers threw for 284 yards with three touchdowns in Sunday's 30-21 win over Seattle.

Rivers did a good job moving around in the pocket, and went to fellow veteran Antonio Gates early and often, as the pair hooked up for three touchdowns. While Rivers might not have the upside of some of the top fantasy quarterbacks, he's durable and more than capable of putting up strong numbers. He'll face another stiff test in Week 3, facing an underrated Buffalo defense.
