Well, it’s week 10 and the Chargers are finally playing their second divisional game of the year.  The first one didn’t go so well but that was against a team we were supposed to beat (Raiders).  This time we’re playing a team that’s supposed to dominate us, so we’ll probably win by two touchdowns.  This is also the first game I get a chance to go to this year, so I’m ten times as pumped!  Let’s take a look at some players to keep an eye on during the game.

Philip Rivers

#17 has been playing at a Pro Bowl level all year.  Even last week, in the loss to the Redskins, Philip threw for 341yds, two touchdown and led a last minute drive that should have won us the game.  Unfortunately, that didn’t end up being the case but Philip did everything he could to put us in a position to win.  This week Peyton Manning comes to town.  Many people have put these quarterbacks number 1 and number 2 based on play this year; everyone at least has these guys as two of the top five quarterbacks in the league right now.  If the Chargers are going to win on Sunday Philip needs to have a big game and outgun and outlast Manning.
