The San Diego Chargers pulled off a big upset on Monday night against the Indianapolis Colts, scoring a 19-9 home win over Andrew Luck’s team. The game was sealed when kicker Nick Novak nailed a 50-yard field goal with 1:55 remaining in the game to make it a two-score game. How big was that kick? So big that Philip Rivers had the awesome reaction shown below: Rivers was clearly enjoying himself and the fact that his team improved to 3-3 after Novak’s field goal. He’s also probably in a good mood because his wife is in the hospital expecting the couple’s seventh (no that’s not a typo) child. Rivers put in a great performance Monday night, completing 22-of-33 passes for 237 yards and one touchdown with no interceptions. He out-gunned Luck who complete 18-of-30 tosses for 202 yards, with no touchdowns and an interception. The Chargers also got a great game out of running back Ryan Mathews, who ran the ball 22 times for 102 yards. Rookie wide receiver Keenan Allen also had a breakout game, catching nine passes for 107 yards and a touchdown.
