Found October 10, 2013 on The Football Fan Spot:
Last week: 19 (-4) Record: 2-3 Philip Rivers threw 3 interceptions against the Raiders in a loss, but it was inevitable that he’d starting throwing interceptions at a higher rate, after throwing just 2 in his first 4 games. However, he’s still been very impressive, completing 73.7% of his passes for an average of 8.5 YPA, 13 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions, as the offense moves the chains on a very impressive 81% of opportunities. He’s doing that without much of a supporting cast. However, the defense is pathetic, allowing opponents to move the chains on 82% of opportunities. They were even worse against the Raiders with Dwight Freeney now out for the season. They made Terrelle Pryor look like John Elway.
