The San Diego Chargers are in a tough division but have a winning record. They could still contend for a wild card spot despite being in the same division as the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs. Philip Rivers has been playing extraordinary and is a big reason the Chargers have been playing well this year.
“He’s been tremendous,” general manager Tom Telesco said, via ESPN. “I always said when your quarterback is the hardest-working player on your team, everything else falls into place. He’s certainly one of those. He’s a leader for us. His passion for football is off the charts.
“I can’t ask for anything more than what he’s done. Players follow him. He’s our guy and it’s fun having him as our quarterback.”
After a stellar rookie season, quarterback Robert Griffin III is struggling to produce.
“Robert was new to the league,” wide receiver Santana Moss said, “and lot of things that he did wowed people because they didn’t know what the (heck) was going on. They didn’t know if he was going to tuck it, if he was going to run it, they didn’t know. Defenses would sit back and say, ‘Hey, we got to find a way to prevent him from doing that.’
“When he’s on doing that, then everything’s wide open because you don’t know what to stop. But when he’s not, then we have to be a little more creative and say ‘Hey, let’s find a way to beat them without running Robert and doing the things that we did last year.’”
