"Give Philip Rivers control of the offense from the line of scrimmage. Give him another monster game (377 yards passing and three touchdowns). Give him the MVP at the quarter pole. Nice to see Malcom Floyd running around out there making plays. That touchdown pitch-and-catch from Rivers was a beaut. -Elliot Harrison"
The Chargers rose to No.5 in ESPN.com and cbssports.com’s power rankings.
"A one-point loss at Arizona in the season opener is the only thing keeping San Diego from 4-0. Philip Rivers’ 82.5 QBR is the best of anyone not named Peyton. -ESPN.comPhilip Rivers is having an MVP-type of season. This is a team that could win the AFC West. -Pete Prisco"
Finally the Chargers also moved up to No.4 in Bleacher Report.com’s power rankings.
"Don’t look now, but the San Diego Chargers are legit.Wins over the Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills are quality wins, and the team handled the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars like you would expect a quality team to do. Even their Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals (an undefeated team) was only by a single point.With a top-five defense and Philip Rivers playing as well as any quarterback in the NFL, the Chargers can overcome injuries at running back. That might be an issue moving ahead, but their depth in the backfield and the big plays from Keenan Allen and other receivers look to be good enough so far to overcome injuries.A home game against the New York Jets is waiting in Week 5, and so is another chance for the Chargers to continue their move up the rankings. -Matt Miller"
