If Sunday’s game marked Philip Rivers’ last with the Los Angeles Chargers, he went out being the guy he has always been, finishing the afternoon with 31 completions on 46 attempts for 281 yards, two touchdowns, and two turnovers.
Following the Week 17’s matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs, a 31-21 loss, Rivers made it clear that him retiring from the sport he loves was not an option and that he was willing to play for another team if it came down to that.
The 38-year-old threw 20 interceptions this season as the team just couldn’t string enough wins together to get back into the postseason.
The Chargers never reached the Super Bowl with Rivers at the helm, with the team only advancing past the divisional round once while going an entire decade without winning an AFC West crown.
It’s not like the Chargers actually have a QB in place to replace Rivers, so bringing him back for more season wouldn’t exactly hurt.
