The Chargers‘ Philip Rivers and Pitt

COSTA MESA Tyrell Williams Color Rush Jersey , Calif. (AP) —sburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger are playing some of the best football of their 15-year careers.On Sunday, the two meet at Heinz Field in a prime-time game that could serve as a playoff preview.If the postseason began this week, the Chargers would be facing the Steelers in a first-round game. Los Angeles (8-3) has a two-game lead for the AFC’s first wild-card spot while Pittsburgh (7-3-1) leads the AFC North and would be the fourth seed.It is the sixth time the two members of the 2004 draft class have met but the first time since 2012, when the Chargers defeated the Steelers 34-24 in Pittsburgh. Roethlisberger though has the 3-2 edge in the series.“We’re probably similar in a lot of ways,” Rivers said. “We both like to stand in there, don’t mind holding on till the last second to make a throw, take a hit, all those things. It’s always awesome going against those teams led by those types of guys.”Both have been in the league for 15 seasons, but Rivers acknowledged that he doesn’t know Roethlisberger very well. However, there is a mutual admiration between the two.“He’s an MVP-caliber player, and he’s playing at a MVP level right now Derek Watt Color Rush Jersey ,” said Roethlisberger of Rivers.Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt was Roethlisberger’s offensive coordinator when he was drafted in 2004 and spent three seasons with him.Whisenhunt has been Rivers’ coach for four seasons in two different stints and said he has been fortunate to see both at different stages of their careers.“Got two different guys that have managed to be successful. The one trait they both have is how competitive they are,” Whisenhunt said.“They are both great leaders. I remember in Pittsburgh telling (then defensive coordinator) Dick Lebeau how special Ben could be. With Philip it is hard for opposing defenses to fool him because he sees so much and has great anticipation for what is coming.”Rivers comes into this game after having the most accurate passing performance in league history last week against Arizona, going 28 of 29 for 239 yards and three touchdowns in three quarters. He completed his first 25, which tied the league mark for consecutive completions and broke the record for the most to start a game.The performance drew plenty of plaudits from throughout the league, including Roethlisberger.“What he did last week was pretty spectacular — 25 in a row. It’s hard to follow all of the games on the west, so much but it’s easy because he’s a quarterback to kind of keep track of how he’s doing,” he said.Rivers is third in the league with a 115.7 passer rating and is averaging 9.1 yards per completion, which is fourth. He has thrown for two or more touchdowns in every game this season, becoming just the fourth in league history to do that in the first 11 games in a season.His biggest improvement though is in not taking risks. He has 26 touchdowns against six interceptions, and his 69.5 percent completion rate ties a career best. Rivers has said often this year it has been one of his goals to have a completion rate of 70 percent or more in a season.Roethlisberger though is also getting better with age. He has thrown for 3,664 yards Keenan Allen Color Rush Jersey , a Los Angeles Chargers communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsChargersOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections San Diego Chargers Daily LinksSan Diego Chargers NewsSan Diego Chargers OffseasonSan Diego Chargers HistorySan Diego Chargers HumorFiled under:Chargers Daily LinksLos Angeles Chargers Daily Links: Could Bolts be in on Josh Rosen?New,24commentsYour daily dose of Los Angeles Chargers news & notes from around the web.PDTShareTweetShareShareLos Angeles Chargers Daily Links: Could Bolts be in on Josh Rosen?Photo by Otto Greule Jr/Getty ImagesMock Draft Tracker 7.0 - Ricky HenneWith only two weeks to go until the draft, here’s the latest look at who top pundits and experts predict the Bolts to select in the first round of the draft on Apr. 25 in Nashville:Best and worst-case scenarios for Chargers’ first-round pick - Tyler GallagherIt would be possible for four higher rated defensive tackles to go off the board and still have both Lawrence and Wilkins available. These four would be Quinnen Williams, Ed Oliver, Rashan Gary, and Jeffrey Simmons (yes, I know he tore his ACL and has misconduct issues, but his talent puts him in the top three rated players in the draft by NFL.com).Former Chargers players who have yet to find a new team - Travis WakemanLet’s get into that discussion with a look at four former players still looking for work. In addition to the players on this list, punter Donnie Jones is out there as is legendary tight end Antonio Gates, who will almost certainly only be in a Chargers uniform if he ever steps on a football field again.Latest On Josh Rosen Market - Sam RobinsonThe Patriots were not high on Rosen last year, Breer notes LaDainian Tomlinson Color Rush Jersey , but that was partially because of what it would have cost them to move up in the first round to acquire him. After a rough year for Rosen, Patriots interest may still not be there, per King. Philip Rivers continues to indicate he has no near-future retirement plans, and the Bolts gave Tyrod Taylor $6MM on a two-year deal. This would not point to a Rosen-to-Los Angeles scenario coming to fruition.What we can learn from target percentage for fantasy: AFC - Daniel KelleyAustin Ekeler might never be a No. 1, bell-cow back, but he’s carved out a perfect role as Melvin Gordon’s backup. As noted in my piece on next year’s free agency, Ekeler has a career 3.1 yards per carry in games he’s played 35-plus offensive snaps, 6.1 in games he’s played fewer. He’s destined to forever be an upside flex play, but a good one.Social Media Information:BFTB Facebook Page: Click here to like our pageBFTB Twitter: Follow @BFTB_ChargersThe Lightning Round Twitter: Follow @Lightning_RoundThe Lightning Round Facebook: Click here to like our pageBFTB Manager: Richard Wade: Follow @RichardWade
