Chargers QB Philip Rivers is on pace to shatter records for a single season

Chargers QB Philip Rivers feels it would be awesome to remain with the team

Chargers QB Philip Rivers could shatter some records this year

While the Chargers may not be the best team in the NFL right now, their quarterback is playing outstanding. Through six games, Philip Rivers has completed 177 of 253 passes for 2,116 yards, with 12 touchdowns and five interceptions. Rivers is currently on pace to break both the NFL record for completions in a season and the NFL record for yards in a season, according to Pro Football Talk.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees set the completions record with 468 in 2011. At his current pace, Rivers will complete 472 passes this season.

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning set the record with 5,477 yards in 2013. At his current pace, Rivers will gain 5,643 yards this season. The Chargers still have several games remaining against bad pass defenses, including the Raiders, Ravens, Bears, Dolphins and twice against the Chiefs. It’s entirely possible that Rivers can keep up his pace against that schedule.

I would love to see Rivers blow up, because the guy has been badly underrated since entering the NFL.
