An exciting game awaits Chargers fans as Philip Rivers and the Bolts head to Tennessee to take on an explosive Titans offense. Chris Johnson is making headlines and earning MVP votes, but Rivers is quietly having an MVP season of his own.
MVP CANDIDATES PREPARE TO CLASH AS THE TITANS HOST THE CHARGERS
The San Diego Chargers travel to the Tennessee Titans in what should be an electric game. Both team's feature dynamic offensive players who are making strong cases for their MVP candidacy.
Philip Rivers, looking for his 10th-straight victory, is on pace to become the first Chargers QB to pass for 4000+ yards in back-to-back seasons since Dan Fouts.
The Titans' Chris Johnson will try to build on his torrid pace to become the NFL's all-time all-purpose yards leader, as he is within striking range of Marshall Faulk's record of 2,429 yards.
This is a game that has playoff implications, records waiting to be broken, and a scoreboard that will be lit up....you wont want to miss it.
TITANS' COACH FISHER IMPLIES THE CHARGERS ARE NOT LIKED AROUND THE LEAGUE
It was in 2007, during the AFC divisional playoff game, that the Titans and Chargers last meet. A hard-fought game on both sides of the ball, the Chargers' defense proved suffocating as they helped the Bolts secure a 17-6 win over the Titans. But the victory proved costly, as the Chargers left the game banged up and bandaged.
Guys were playing to the whistle and beyond, and it became clear that the two teams didn't particularly care for one another (I sense a trend here).
Titans head coach Jeff Fishers tells the San Diego Union-Tribune, "We've had some great battles, great matchups, and didn't wind up on the winning side of any of them. But I know there are some other teams I've heard of that don't particularly care for the Chargers. Maybe it's them."
PHILIP RIVERS IN DECEMBER
Philip Rivers is quietly having an absolutely outstanding season; 25 touchdowns to only 9 interceptions, a passer rating of over 100, and 4000 passing yards well within reach. A shame he gets eclipsed by guys like Farve and Manning, but those two are future Hall-of-Famers and yet Rivers is playing as well or better than them both.
