Your daily dose of San Diego Chargers news & notes from around the web.

Rivers outdoing Peyton in one area - Tom Krasovic (paywall)
Through seven games Philip Rivers is the Zen master among Zen masters when it comes to passing accuracy. With an NFL-best completion rate of 73.9 percent, Rivers is outdoing even MVP Watch leader Peyton Manning, who can bend spoons with his mind. The marksmanship beats Rivers' career percentage entering this season by 10.3 points.

Radio Interview with Daniel Jeremiah - Darren Smith Show
NFLN's Daniel Jeremiah on the mess in Tampa, how much character matters to NFL executives & how DJ Fluker has performed at tackle.

Inside Slant: John Parry the penalty leader - Kevin Seifert
The chart breaks down all penalties, both accepted and declined, for each referee this season. Keep in mind that the referees have worked anywhere between one and seven games this season as part of the NFL's rotation system, so perhaps the most significant number is the percentage of penalties per game.

NFL Rookie Rankings - Mel Kiper Jr. (Insider)
Maybe he's a little high based on aggregate performance, but this shows some respect for the trend line. After a slow start (not uncommon for a rookie wide receiver), he's now tied for the team lead in targets among wide receivers with 37 and has 23 of his 26 receptions over the past four games. Allen is a first-round talent that lasted until the third because he couldn't get healthy during the draft process. The Chargers are reaping the benefits.

Rounding Up the Bolts at the Bye - Ricky Henne
"I love the way our passing game has been. It opens up our game plan because the coaches can rely on all of us. Anything the coaching staff wants us to do we can do. So that’s been fun and I think we’re doing a good job with it. Philip is confident in each one of us and it shows." – Keenan Allen on the passing game
