Philip Rivers has mostly appeared to be finished in points this season. In other games, he looked like one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. This may change from week to week.
Rivers is interesting at least. When the Indianapolis Colts take on the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night, a game that can be streamed live on the Yahoo Sports app, the game will likely play out like Rivers. It has been the Colts’ model of the season.
What Indianapolis gets from Rivers in a crucial clash with AFC South is one to guess.
Philip Rivers starts over with Colts
Rivers has entered a new chapter in his career this season. He had spent his entire career with the Chargers. He was sometimes an MVP candidate. If he could have made it to a Super Bowl, he would have had a great Hall of Fame deal. But he also had a knack for turning around at the wrong time.
In 2019, Rivers looked to be at the end of it and the Chargers seemed to be okay with it. They left him in the last offseason, making Rivers a free agent for the first time. The Colts have given him enough thought to give him $ 25 million in a season, even though Rivers will be 39 in December.
This signing, at times, didn’t sound very good. Rivers threw two interceptions in a shocking Week 1 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. He threw two more, including one that was brought in for a touchdown, against the Cleveland Browns in Week 5.
The reviews were out and Rivers was eager to see what was said about her.
“I made the decision last week, I’ll read. I want to read what they wrote, ”Rivers said, according to 107.5 The Fan in Indianapolis. “It comes with it. You stink, they better write: “The rivers had better put up with it”.
“Not to be motivating, I just wanted to see… I felt like you were all pretty honest.” “
After that Browns game, in which some wondered if it was time for the Colts to put Rivers on the bench and try Jacoby Brissett, Rivers had two comeback performances.
The rivers have been up and down
Rivers played extremely well in a huge 31-27 comeback win over the Cincinnati Bengals, throwing for 371 yards and three touchdowns to save the Colts from a bad loss. The following week, he threw three more touchdowns in a win over the Detroit Lions. Rivers was back.
So he wasn’t. Last week against the Baltimore Ravens, Rivers had 227 yards, no touchdowns and one interception (although the call for pick is questionable). His attempt to tackle a Baltimore fumble has gone viral.
And after? Do we have the Rivers who sometimes watched the last two seasons during his 38 years, or the fearless playmaker who destroyed the Bengals as he led his team to victory? Nobody knows.
But it should be entertaining anyway.
