In fact, his rush percentage of 83.9% from the right side, is the third highest amid all qualifying 3-4 linebackers.
Philip Rivers: Scoring key, not playing keep-away from Peyton Manning - Eric Williams
"I don’t think we go into the game playing keep-away," Rivers said. "We go into the game playing to score. And if we score fast, great -- but we’ve got to score. You can’t go three to four possessions without scoring. We did that in the playoff game, and when you look up it was 21-0, 17-0 or whatever it was, just like that. And that’s not a team you want to be playing catch-up with all day long."
