Chargers Philip Rivers owns the Oakland Raiders in his career

riversIf you want to know why the Chargers are 4-1, tied for the best record in the league, and look to have a real Super feel about them, it all starts with quarterback Philip Rivers .Rivers is the NFL’s top-rated passer with a rating of 116.7. He has 12 touchdown passes and two interceptions. He’s completing a league-best 70.3-percent of his passes, and he is showcasing that “It” Factor.

Rivers has had three different starting running backs this year already, but it doesn’t matter he still gets the job done.

Philip Rivers has NFL-record 4 straight games with passer rating above 120.0 (min 20 pass att/game)

So while Rivers might be on the path to be the leagues MVP, he will have to face the Raiders this week. The Raiders have been a team that Rivers owns since entering the NFL.  A matter of fact, it might be the team he is the best against.

Philip Rivers’ record in 16 career starts against Oakland. In those games, he’s completed 62.3 percent of his passes for 3,716 yards with 23 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. So this week when Rivers suits up, expect him to continue major strides and winning voters over for MVP.
