How all 31 first-round picks have played - Sam Monson
Finally getting on the field in Week 5, Joey Bosa has looked like a dominant force for the Chargers. He has 54 total QB pressures on the season, playing a mixture of defensive end and outside linebacker for the Chargers—that’s a comparable pressure total to Jason Pierre-Paul, but on almost 300 fewer snaps. Bosa has looked like a star from day one, and even if he doesn’t get any better, he has been a ready-made Pro-Bowl caliber player for San Diego.

32 PFF stats to know for NFL Week 17 - Nathan Jahnke
When Philip Rivers targets Chargers TE Hunter Henry, he has a passer rating of 148.3, which is the best for a tight end with more than 25 targets. The Chargers rookie tight end Henry had a breakout start of the season. He hasn’t had as many yards recently, but has a touchdown in four of the past five games. While Antonio Gates would like to tie and/or break Tony Gonzalez record for most touchdowns all-time by a tight end, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Henry also have a good game.

Hopefully he gets signed back here and comes back for another few years while I’m here, because I think it could be something special."

Philip Rivers promises the Chiefs will get max effort from Chargers - Adam Teicher
"I was pulling like crazy for the Chiefs on Sunday night to beat Denver and hoping they were going to play playing us for the (AFC West championship and) the two-seed so you get a little bit of that playoff-game type feel since we’re not going to be in them," Rivers said.

Who's that? Marcus Peters and Tyrell Williams to get acquainted on Sunday - Eric Williams
However, in a conference call with San Diego-area reporters this week, Peters had trouble naming San Diego’s leading receiver. "Who?" Peters said when asked about Williams. "Who’s that?" No. 16? "Oh, No. 16, he’s been having a hell of a year stepping in and replacing Keenan," Peters said. "He’s been doing what he needs to do."
