Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said he's impressed how his Chiefs counterpart, Alex Smith, has diffused what could have been an awkward situation. The Chiefs drafted QB Patrick Mahomes II in the first round. “Obviously it's from afar but it seems like Alex has handled it absolutely as good as it can be handled, not only the way he's handled it from a media standpoint but just the way he's handled it with his play . . . I don't think there's any question who the quarterback of that team is,'' Rivers said. The Chiefs and Chargers meet on Sunday in Los Angeles.
