San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers was named the 2013 Comeback Player of the Year by The Associated Press Saturday, Feb. 1.
Huddle Up: Rivers certainly was deserving, finding new life under coach Mike McCoy and posting the third-most passing yards (4,478) and second-most passing TDs (32) of his career.

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers topped 400 yards passing for the third time in five games this season in Week 5 against the Oakland Raiders. He completed more than 73 percent of his throws for the fourth straight week despite throwing three interceptions.
Huddle Up: From a fantasy perspective, this was a real nice game. From a real-world view, three interceptions and a loss aren't so hot. Rivers does have a favorable schedule, so the big games should continue.

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 14-of-29 passes for 195 yards, 4 TDs and an interception Monday, Sept. 9 in the team's 31-28 season-opening loss to the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Rivers got off to a hot start, connecting with WRs Eddie Royal (twice), Vincent Brown and RB Ryan Mathews for scores in guiding the Bolts to a 28-7 third-quarter lead before the Texans stormed back with 24 unanswered points for the win. Houston's final TD was a pick-six by LB Brian Cushing -- a play all-too reminiscent of the QB's turnover struggles last year. Still, despite the real-life loss, it was a solid fantasy start for Rivers, who hadn't thrown 4 TD passes in a game since the middle of the 2011 season.
