Research Notes

  • When the Chargers used at least three wide receivers, Rivers was 10 for 10 for 143 yards, his best completion percentage since Week 14 of the 2010 season (also against the Chiefs).

  • Philip Rivers is 18-for-20 with 11 minutes left in the fourth quarter. If he doesn't throw another incompletion, he'll finish with one of the five best completion percentages in a single game in NFL history (QB must have 20 attempts in game for NFL record).
