Despite Outcome, Rivers' Accuracy Continues - Ricky Henne
What did remain consistent from last week, however, was the accurate hand of quarterback Philip Rivers. Number 17 finished the game 20-of 24 for 184 yards, one touchdown and a 112.5 passer rating.

"We’ve got a good football team here and that’s why you’ve got 53 on the roster," said Head Coach Mike McCoy. "I think the players who had an opportunity to step in today did a nice job.

Upon Further Review: Chargers Week 3 - Eric D. Williams
San Diego headed into Sunday’s contest already down an offensive lineman when D.J. Fluker was ruled out because of a concussion. Michael Harris played solid in place of Fluker at right tackle. But the Chargers potentially lost two more starters up front against Tennessee. San Diego coach Mike McCoy told reporters after the game left tackle King Dunlap had a concussion. Left guard Chad Rinehart also had a turf toe injury in the second half and did not return.

ReFo: SD @ TEN, Week 3 - Sam Monson
Antonio Gates made a couple of one-handed attempts in this game and remains the only player I can think of who regularly catches passes one handed just because he can.
