ReFo: Cowboys @ Chargers, Week 4 - Rick Drummond
In a game that featured 48 first downs – 35 coming through the air – it’s no surprise to find there was a certain amount of efficient, bite-sized production that helped these teams march. For the Chargers, that came in the shape of a slew of under-the-coverage completions. Philip Rivers (+4.2) let loose passes targeted under 10 yards 28 times… and hooked up on 26 of them.

"It’s going to be huge," running back Danny Woodhead said. "It’s a divisional game, which those go even further because you have two against each team. They’re very important, and we just got to be ready. We’ve got to take every single day that we have, starting today, to prepare and watch film -- just know what they’re going to do so we’re ready on Sunday."

Weddle, a three-time All-Pro, reminded observers of something else after the game: He can still play. "I’m pretty good myself," Weddle said, smiling. "Some people forget about that. But he’s one of the best guys in the league. For myself, I knew coming into this game that if I played well, and if I could nullify him in third-down situations, and any time I was matched up with him, then [we] would have a good chance to win."

"He’s a young player who’s getting better every week," McCoy said. "The more reps he gets, the better he’s going to be. It’s a learning curve for him. It’s different. We throw a lot of things at him. And when you play a game like we played today (Sunday) -- up-tempo, no-huddle, doing a lot of things -- you don’t have a lot of time to think. He made the most of every opportunity."

What we learned: 40 takeaways from Week 4 -
Philip Rivers for MVP? Yes, it's still early, but Rivers is playing as good as any quarterback not named Peyton Manning. Rivers threw for 401 yards and three touchdowns, completing 83 percent of his passes. Rivers is back, and it's made the Chargers an AFC player.
