Philip Rivers says he didn't say anything out of line to the officials

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers had a couple of memorable moments in the Chargers 20-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans Sunday.

The game had a fairly funny conclusion when the Chargers attempted to create a Stanford-Cal ending with about 100 laterals. At the end of the play, Rivers kicked the ball to a teammate, which is illegal. He was flagged and a hilarious GIF came of it.

Earlier in the game, Rivers was flagged after screaming at an official. Rivers had just thrown a touchdown to wide receiver Eddie Royal, but he was flagged for pass interference and the touchdown was called back. That also produced a couple of hilarious GIFs.

On Tuesday, Rivers told reporters he didn’t say anything out of line when he screamed at the referee.

Nothing I can’t repeat,” Rivers told Mark McCarter of AL.com when asked what he said to the refs. “I don’t know. I think it was more of the hand wave-off. But I didn’t say one thing that was out of line. Again, that’s no excuse. I’m certainly not proud of getting a penalty.”

In the game, Rivers was 20-of-24 for 184 yards with one touchdown.
