No, Jason Campbell is not a better quarterback than Philip Rivers. The one thing that Campbell does have on Rivers, though, is three less interceptions.
Rivers is off to a below-average start, throwing for 1,536 yards, six touchdowns and seven interceptions. Rivers has also been sacked 13 times thus far, which can be attributed to his offensive line.
Jason Campbell has thrown for 1,118 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions. He has only been sacked five times.
Campbell might never outplay Philip Rivers, but he has certainly been smarter with the football thus far. When the schedule gets tough for the Chargers, Rivers' turnovers will kill the team.
Rivers only threw 13 interceptions in 2010, but his completion percentage is the highest it's ever been at 67.2.
Campbell has inferior wide receivers when compared to the Chargers, but he has done a very solid job for the Raiders. He is more of a game manager than Philip Rivers.
When the schedules flip for the Raiders and Chargers, we will see Campbell continue to manage football games. Rivers is on pace for a career-high in interceptions, and the Chargers' schedule plus injuries to receivers certainly doesn't help him at all.
