Fourth Quarter Grade: C-
While Philip Rivers was able to move the ball down the field in crunch time, in the end he could not get the job done. Rivers continue to struggle with the game on the line and seems rushed at all times. This is a direct reflection on inability to stand in a pocket and make a throw down field.
Third Quarter Grade: B-
Rivers has been forced out of the pocket many times today and has actually looked mobile. While it would be a bad idea for the Rivers to attempt to get out of the pocket more, he has done a good job at dealing what he is given.
Second Quarter Grade: A-
Rivers has been extremely impressive this game. He has done a great job at avoiding the rush and has been able to step up and get the ball out quickly. Rivers even scrambled for 10 yards, which is something that Charger fans are not used to seeing. Rivers needs to find a way to get the ball into the end zone in the second.
First Quarter Grade: B
Rivers looked great in the first quarter. He has adapted to having little to no time and is getting the ball out of his hand much quicker. The Bengals are going to get after Rivers all afternoon so he will have to remain calm under pressure much like he did in the first quarter.
