Packers at Saints: Five things to watch

1. Cool Brees: In four career games against Green Bay, Saints quarterback Drew Brees has thrown 11 touchdowns and just two interceptions. He's also completed 64.6 percent of his passes, averaged 364.5 passing yards per game and is 2-2 in those contests. Brees is just 6-foot-0, but overcomes that with terrific vision, a unique ability to find passing lanes and a quick release. His arm strength isn't great, but he's remarkably accurate.

Kansas City Chiefs fans knew a collapse was coming ... until it didn't

The Chiefs finally stepped up in a tight game and made the plays necessary for a massive road win. All I could do was wait. Despite controlling the ball and leading for much of the fourth quarter, I sat on my couch looking skyward, waiting for the roof to cave in. I waited for Philip Rivers to beat one of the Kansas City Chiefs' inexperienced corners for the game-winning touchdown. I waited for someone to make a back-breaking play to hand the San Diego Chargers a win. I waited for Cairo Santos to miss that 48-yard field goal. I waited for San Diego to create a miracle. I waited for what...

Chiefs pass rush vs. Chargers' Philip Rivers is the matchup of the game

Chiefs pass rush vs. Chargers' Philip Rivers is the matchup of the game

The one key matchup in Chiefs-Chargers is KC's pass rush pressuring Philip Rivers. The Chiefs pass rush vs. Philip Rivers. That's pretty much what this KC Chiefs and San Diego Chargers Week 7 game comes down to. The Chiefs biggest strength on the team is their pass rush and the Chargers biggest strength is their quarterback Philip Rivers. This matches up nicely. The Chiefs pass rush, who sacked Rivers four times in two games last year, has been solid this year as it was last year. Justin Houston and Tamba Hali coming off the edge with Dontari Poe and a better Allen Bailey pushing the...

Chiefs-Chargers looks like a trap game with Chargers-Broncos next week

Chiefs-Chargers looks like a trap game with Chargers-Broncos next week

The Chargers could be looking past the Chiefs and to the Broncos next week. Notre Dame barely beat North Carolina last weekend as the Irish looked ahead to this Saturday's game of the year against Florida State. Notre Dame was a 17-point favorite yet won by just seven points. Notre Dame was looking ahead of North Carolina as they awaited the real challenge this season, the No. 1 Florida State Seminoles. In the scenario above, the Chargers are Notre Dame, the Chiefs are North Carolina and the Broncos are Florida State. Let me explain... The Chiefs and Chargers play this Sunday. That's a big...

Facing Philip Rivers not a good time for Kansas City Chiefs secondary injuries

Facing Philip Rivers not a good time for Kansas City Chiefs secondary injuries

The Chiefs have a couple of members of the secondary on the injury report. There is one noticeable difference with the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday injury report: S Eric Berry did not practice. That's not the news anyone wanted to hear as the Chiefs get set to face Philip Rivers, Antonio Gates and the San Diego Chargers. Berry has not played since injuring his ankle over a month ago but optimism crept back up this week as he practiced on both Monday and Wednesday. Missing Thursday's practice has erased some of that optimism. CB Chris Owens, who is the nickel back, did not practice on...

Buying and selling the Chiefs: Philip Rivers edition

A weekly look at the Chiefs stock report. Buying: Philip Rivers This is obvious, but there's no way to talk about the San Diego Chargers without starting with their quarterback. Philip Rivers is having his best season ever, a real statement given the incredible-yet-underrated he's turned in so far. Let's throw out a few numbers to show why you should buy, in case you've somehow been unaware. The Chargers average an NFL-worst 2.9 yards/carry. They are 2nd in the NFL in total rushes. The Chargers are still somehow No. 12 overall in yards/play at 5.7. The Chargers can move the chains among...

Five Good Questions with Bolts From The Blue

I caught up with John Gennaro from SB Nation's Chargers blog for this week's Five Good Questions. Here is how that Q-n-A went down. 1. How is it Philip Rivers is the early favorite for league MVP? There's a couple of different factors. He's in his prime, it's his second year in this short-passing offense that fits him better, he's playing lesser teams, and he's had almost no help from his offensive line or running game. Mike McCoy, who was viewed as something of an offensive/QB wizard from his time with the Broncos, has been the best thing to ever happen to Rivers, and has finally helped...

How Philip Rivers Raised His Game

SAN DIEGO — If the season ended today, Philip Rivers would be MVP. This is not a matter of debate. The Chargers quarterback owns the highest completion percentage in football, 70.3%, on a 4-1 team that handed Seattle just its fourth loss in 23 months and is playing through injuries to three centers and three […]

Week 5 San Diego Chargers Grades: Dominant 31-0 win over Jets

Week 5 San Diego Chargers Grades: Dominant 31-0 win over Jets

The Chargers post their most complete win of the Mike McCoy / Tom Telesco era with a 31-0 pummeling of the New York Jets - the first shutout of the 2014 NFL season. Quarterbacks: A- Philip Rivers finished the game with 20 completions on 28 attempts (71.4%), for 288 yards and a robust 10.3 yards per attempt, with 3 TD passes and one turnover. Let's dispense with the turnover 1st - although Rivers did have pressure in his face, the INT was a forced throw to WR Keenan Allen in the end zone which also exposed Allen to an unnecessary hit from Jets' S Calvin Pryor. On the good side, Rivers...

Drive of the game: Bad from the start

SAN DIEGO -- A look back at the key drive in the New York Jets' 31-0 loss to the San Diego Chargers: The Drive: On their first possession, the Chargers went 90 yards in 11 plays to take a 7-0 lead -- the first of three 90-yard touchdown drives. The Situation: Talk about setting a bad tone. The Jets showed no resistance whatsoever, allowing Philip Rivers to pick them apart from the outset. It ended with his eight-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Gates.
