Chargers receivers run deep - Matt Calkings (UT$)
"We're just all playing around Philip," said Floyd, adding that he thinks Rivers is "the greatest quarterback in the league." "He breaks down the defense and just kind of knows where he's gonna go pre-snap."

Defense Uses Killer Instinct to Finish Game in Style - Ricky Henne
"They executed the plan that Coach (John) Pagano and the rest of the staff had for them," he said. "It’s a number of players. You look out there and there’s different guys coming and going. We rolled the defensive line and we just kept on rolling. We told everyone that this is a physical football team that we just played. We said that it’s going to be smash mouth football for four quarters, and that’s exactly what it was. So, defensively, we rolled all the guys up front to try to keep everyone as fresh as possible. We wanted to win and that’s great effort by the whole entire team."

Donald Brown Shoulders the Load in Big Way - Ricky Henne
"Thirty six touches is a lot, and Donald is a true pro," said Philip Rivers.  "He takes care of his body, and he’s going to get the load of it for the next while.  I think he’s used to it.  He was pretty much the featured back in Indy there for some time, and he loves playing football.  I have a great deal of confidence with him back there."

Rapid Reaction: San Diego Chargers - Eric Williams
Royal scored both touchdowns for the Chargers in the red zone on 3- and 5-yard receptions. San Diego has struggled in the red zone offensively this year. Royal’s polished route running and toughness proved the difference on both plays. He finished with four receptions for 42 yards.

Brown signing proves prophetic for Bolts - Eric Williams
"You look at the offseason and I didn't wonder -- but some people wondered -- why we went out and got another back," Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said. "They got a couple backs, and thank goodness we did. That's already shown to be a good move here early in the season."
