    Philip Rivers Will Continue Domination

    Thursday, December 14, 7:17 PM

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers is riding a streak of four straight games with a passer rating over 100, and he doesn't look to be stopping anytime soon. Facing the Chiefs in Week 15 is far different from facing them in Week 3, and Rivers has been untouchable the last few weeks. KC's defense has been below average, especially over the last month, and even though he's on the road, Rivers will burn them consistently. With the full offensive machine flying along for LA, expect Rivers to be one of the most valuable quarterbacks once again.

    During the 2004 draft, Rivers was projected to be a quick first-round draft pick due to his astounding college career. In a strategic move, the New York Giants and San Diego Chargers negotiated with each other for Rivers, Eli Manning, and a firs-round draft pick.  

    NFL Career

    As Rivers became a first-round draft pick for the Chargers, as a rookie he signed a substantial contract. His first contract included a six-year, $40.5 million salary and $14.5 million in signing bonuses. During his first two years, Rivers only played a total of four games as Drew Brees was the starting quarterback at the time. Honing his skills through practice, Rivers eventually became the leader of the team.

    In 2006, Rivers became the starting quarterback and wasted no time making his presence known. Rivers recorded stats of 3,388 passing yards, 22 touchdowns, and a 92.0 rating. During his first game as a starter against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Rivers led the NFL with a 133.9 rating after completing 8 passes and one touchdown.

    In 2007, Rivers led is team to the AFC Championship game and was a big deal for the Chargers overall. The last time the Chargers won a playoff game prior to this year was in 1994. Although they ended up losing to the Patriots in the 2007 AFC Championship game, this cemented Rivers as a franchise player.

    From 2006 forward, Rivers has played and started in every single game of the regular season. Each year Rivers recorded 3,100+ passing yards, 20+ touchdowns, and nothing less than an 82.4 quarterback rating. Feel free to checkout Rivers highlights from his 2015-2016 season
