Rivers: No reenacting 2015 home finale - Michael Gehlken
"Last year, I said, ‘We’ll know what’s right,’" Rivers said. "I guess that’s the best way to approach it. There’s a piece of me that kinda feels that the farewell has come and gone, so maybe it will just be like any other game at the conclusion, win or lose. Maybe not. Obviously, I don’t think we can ignore whatever situation we’ll be in. (But) I don’t feel like you can reenact last year’s ending."

"I’m close," he said.  "I’m making strides.  It will be a game day decision whatever the case may be.  I’ve been getting after it pretty hard.  (I’m) definitely headed in the right direction."

Meanwhile, Melvin Gordon declared himself a true game day decision and should he take the field, he’ll continue his quest for 1,000 yards.  The second-year running back is only three short, totaling 997 yards on 254 carries this year. Ronnie Hillman and Andre Williams are the other two rushers who figure to see the field.

"He's a pain," Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said. "He's one of those players that has created a name for himself that you have to know where he is on every play. And they use him in so many different ways. He's very talented player."
