Philip Rivers: No one gave the Chargers a chance

The San Diego Chargers got a big win over the Denver Broncos on Thursday night football. After the game Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers went on the NFL Network set and vented about no one giving the Chargers a chance to win.

“We knew nobody gave us a chance, and nobody should have given us a chance either if you were outside of our locker room,” Rivers said, via

“But we came in with a lot of confidence,” the 32-year-old said. “We had won five of the last seven here. We said let’s go play our best game and get another one and stay alive. Let’s stay alive and see what happens.”

The Chargers looked like they were milking the clock to keep Broncos’ quarterback Peyton Manning on the sidelines. Rivers downplayed that idea.

“I think time of possession is overrated, unless you are scoring. You got to score at the end of those drives … tonight we finished those drives.”

The Chargers did have nearly twice the time of possession as the Broncos and that clearly made an impact.
