NFL QB Rankings by PFF grade after Week 14 - PFF Analysis Team
Rivers continued his hot play, going a fantastic 11-for-13 for 268 yards on passes thrown at least 10 yards in the air, including a 4-for-4 mark on 20-plus yard throws. Rivers hit WR Tyrell Williams for a 75-yard score on a post route before hitting WR Keenan Allen on a 51-yard corner route, both plays showing that he has plenty left in his arm to get the ball down the field. Rivers has the highest PFF grade over the last four weeks, and he’s heating up at the right time for a Chargers playoff push.

The Chargers defense absolutely throttled the life out of the Washington offense this week, eliminating them from playoff contention while keeping their own hopes alive. Adrian Phillips saw five targets over the course of the game covering the middle of the field for the Chargers, but allowed just two catches, which went for a total of zero yards. He also notched a pass breakup on a pass intended for WR Brian Quick.

“Again individual recognition comes when teams have success. Shoot, if that [the MVP award] comes with us having a lot of success certainly you’d be grateful. But, we got a good thing going, and hopefully, we can keep it going.”

“I could see them running him more this last quarter of the season, especially in the type of weather that we’re going to be in,” Chargers coach Anthony Lynn told reporters this week. “We’re going to definitely have to have hats to the ball to stop him, because he’s a good runner and he’s also a good receiver.”
