Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers insists that he’s playing as well as ever right now, despite putting up passing numbers that strongly suggest otherwise. After throwing three interceptions in Sunday’s loss to the Packers, Rivers said there’s nothing wrong — nothing wrong with his arm, nothing wrong with the Chargers’ offense, nothing wrong in his personal…

The defending Super Bowl champion Packers (8-0) remain the NFL's only undefeated team.
Sure, the Chiefs caught breaks of various sorts in their four consecutive wins over the last five weeks (see Curtis Painter, Kyle Boller and a freakishly botched snap by Philip Rivers on "Monday Night Football," for starters). But for all that went right for them in running their record to 4-3, just as much went awry on Sunday against the previously winless Dolphins. To wit:
