The Chargers (3-3) are desperate for a rebound. With the bye week, the last two weeks have felt like an eternity after San Diego’s historic collapse against the Broncos on Monday Night Football. San Diego is hopeful a young, struggling Browns (1-6) team will provide the much needed win.
The agent for the San Diego Chargers’ Nate Kaeding says the team is skirting NFL rules in hopes of avoiding having to pay out $1.2 million in termination pay to the veteran kicker.
Kaeding, one of the most accurate kickers in NFL history, was placed on injured reserve Oct. 22 with the expectation he would be released when healthy. He kicked in the Chargers’ first three games this season before injuring his groin Sept. 28. The Chargers signed kicker Nick Novak, who is the only active kicker currently on the team.

Philip Rivers spent the better part of the next hour just talking football, because that’s what he likes to do. And because he doesn’t like conversation being about him — almost never accepting praise, rarely deflecting blame.
