Quarterback Philip Rivers and company have been on the sideline because the Titans offense have been doing a great job by controlling the time of possession. Tennessee is outnumbering them in that aspect 21:01 to 8:59.

Wide receiver Tyrell Williams is having another stellar game after connecting with his QB on the first play of the game for 75-yards. Williams has two receptions for 101 yards]]>

<![CDATA[Titans players speak on what it'll be like to go against Melvin Gordon, Philip Rivers, and the Chargers]]>
“Gordon, Gordon, Gordon. That’s the main challenge. Philip Rivers is Philip Rivers. He is a top, elite quarterback in this league, but everything goes through Gordon. Whenever the receivers are not open, the check down to Gordon is always there and he’s always getting positive yards. The running game is wide open when guys want to rush the passer and they do a lot of things of that nature to get Gordon free.” – OLB Brian Orakp]]>

The Los Angeles offense ranks seventh in the NFL this year, averaging 412.5 yards per game. Quarterback Philip Rivers, almost midway through his fifteenth season, totals 1,702 yards passing and 15 touchdown passes.

Whisenhunt never had such success in Tennessee, as the Titans totaled 4,859 yards on offense in 2014 (29th), and 4,988 yards (30th) in the 2015 season that he was fired seven games into]]>

<![CDATA[The Chargers' offense this season is a marriage of talented skill players and a quarterback who can maximize their potential]]> Philip Rivers this year. I always bring this up, but it’s good to get fresh analysis. To get an outsiders perspective on how a player is doing from a non fans point of view. Derrik broke a ton of throws down so be sure to check it out. Here are some highlights from the article:

Quarterback Philip Rivers is regularly left out of conversations of the league’s best passers. Despite being cemented throughout the NFL’s record books as a passer, the Chargers’ constant disarray and underachievement has led many to brush Rivers aside. Rivers is not allowing himself to be ignored this season, though. Rivers is on track to contend for the MVP award]]>

And for his performance, he is this week’s Prime Performer.

Los Angeles is loaded with weapons in the receiving corps, and Williams hasn’t gotten enough attention in previous weeks, but he was one of the main attractions yesterday.

He and quarterback Philip Rivers were the momentum changers after starting slow offensively. Williams made a huge 45-yard grab in the second quarter to get the team out of the shadow of their own end zone, and the play worked so well that offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt decided to run it again]]>

<![CDATA[NFL Next Gen Stats: Chargers QB Philip Rivers Week 6 Passing Chart]]> Philip Rivers completed 11 of 20 passes for 207 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday’s 38-14 win over the Browns.

Rivers didn’t sling the ball as much as previous contests because they knew that the Browns had a lot of success against the pass through five weeks. Instead, Los Angeles established a solid ground attack with running backs Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler. Wide receiver Keenan Allen even had four carries on a few end around plays.

Rivers linked up with WR Tyrell Williams for two touchdowns in the second quarter, but L.A.’s lead was so big that the veteran QB didn’t have to do anything to fill up his stat sheet after halftime and was even replaced by QB Geno Smith with a few minutes left in the fourth quarter]]>
