Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers
By San Diego Chargers NFL Tickets Staff Writer: R. Murray
Let's Go Phillip Rivers:
Philip Rivers, age 30, is a football quarterback for the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League (NFL). He was one half of the Manning-Rivers draft trade which sent him to San Diego and the 1st overall pick, Ole Miss quarterback Eli Manning, to the New York Giants. We've seen Rivers playing college football at North Carolina State University.
San Diego Underdog Turned Star:
Phillip Rivers has a great underdog story: when starting Chargers quarterback Drew Brees went to the New Orleans Saints following the 2005 season, Rivers came off the bench to lead the Chargers to a 14-2 record in his first season as a starter. In 2007, he helped the Chargers win their first playoff game since 1994 after beating the Tennessee Titans in the wildcard round of the 2007 playoffs and eventually leading them to the AFC Championship game. He has a career total of 13 fourth quarter comebacks, his most recent being on September 11, 2011, when he led the Chargers to a 24-17 win over the Minnesota Vikings.
