Found October 31, 2013 on This Given Sunday:

Believe it or not, Philip Rivers leads the league with a completion percentage of 73.9, which is nearly three points up on Manning. Rivers threw 48 interceptions the last three seasons but has only five this year and might record the most accurate campaign in NFL history. Mike McCoy is a genius. 2. Five quarterbacks are on pace to pass for more than 5,000 yards, which is something only six quarterbacks have accomplished in NFL history prior to this season. 3. Jake Locker and Andrew Luck might have only 39 career starts combined under their belt, but those two young quarterbacks have thrown just four interceptions on a combined 376 passes. They're r...

Chargers' QB can't miss; Redskins' RG3 looks human

If Philip Rivers' passing stats look familiar, it's because they used to belong to Robert Griffin III. At least it looks that way.
