NFL stats and milestones to watch: Week 3 - ESPN Stats & Information
Philip Rivers of the San Diego Chargers needs four touchdown passes to tie Johnny Unitas (290) for 10th place on the all-time list. Rivers has thrown for four touchdowns in a game eight times in his 167-game career, including in Week 2 against the Jaguars.

Comfort in San Diego's offense eases transition for Dexter McCluster - Eric Williams
"There’s some things that we’re doing different that he’s learning as we go on, but I think he’s excited to be here for the opportunity he has to play on our football team."

32 PFF Stats to Know for NFL Week 3 - Nathan Jahnke
Flowers is the third cornerback in San Diego, and as a unit, the team has been playing very well. While Flowers has allowed 10 catches already this season, he’s surrendered just 81 total receiving yards. On a number of these plays, he’s been able to make a tackle for just a short gain. The Colts are known for their passing game, but they will be without WR Donte Moncrief, so the Chargers will have the numbers to match up against Indianapolis’ receivers. If San Diego can neutralize QB Andrew Luck, they will have a strong chance of winning at Lucas Oil Stadium.

"He’s difficult to prepare for. People don’t really look at his ability to run the football.  He has such a great throwing motion, a big arm and great receiving threats to get the ball to that you kind of forget that he can get out there and can run a bit. We’ve just got to make sure that we have something for that.  We have to make sure we don’t let things get out of control.  We haven’t for the past two weeks.  As long as we continue to play the caliber of ball that we’ve been playing it will be a good game."
