Is This the game that Rivers finally throws for 300 yards?

The only stats that truly matter are wins and losses. But I find it a bit odd that through four games Philip Rivers has yet to throw for 300 yards or more in a game this year.

It appears that this could be the game where he easily exceeds that number. The Saints’ defense is pathetic right now. Although I am hoping to not get into a shootout, it is very likely that will indeed be the case.

Rivers has thrown for over 4000 yards in four consecutive seasons. Thus far in 2012, Rivers is averaging just over 224 yards a game through the air. If he continues at this pace he will finish with 3,588 yards passing.

I wrote in an article earlier today about the possibility of a breakout game for Robert Meachem. Personally I don’t see that happening. I actually see Malcom Floyd putting up some ridiculous numbers on Sunday night. The difference in rapport built up between Rivers and both Meachem and Floyd is significantly different.

This could end up being a huge game for the tight ends as well. I am hoping that Gates will come up big against a secondary that has had it’s share of issues this year.

If I had to guess I would say that Philip throws for 325 yards and 2 touchdowns against New Orleans.

But all that really matters to me is that the Chargers win and go to 4-1 heading into a Monday night game against Denver.

Thanks a lot for reading.

    Saints D is a joke, Rivers should be able to throw all day. I personally think Meachem can break out this game, these are corners he practiced against for last few years…he knows how to beat them. I think Rivers also looks his way a bit more since its his old team. NO can score in bunches so no repeat of 3rd quarter from KC last week! Have to keep foot on the gas. I agree with you on Rivers numbers, except I think he throws 3 TDs.
