Chargers’ Joey Bosa reacts to record day from Philip Rivers
Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers played one of the best games of his career yesterday. It was a day to be remembered for the 15-season veteran as he went on to set several NFL passing records.
In their 45-10 win against the Arizona Cardinals, Rivers eclipsed the record set by Mark Brunell in 2006. He completed his first 25 passes and finished the game with a 96.6 completion percentage.
Everyone was happy for Rivers. Chargers fans, as well as his teammates, have expressed their support for the 36-year-old quarterback.
Defensive end Joey Bosa was one of those who cheered hard for Rivers during the game as per Ricky Henne of Chargers.com
“It was unbelievable,” he said. “We were cheering. The 25th was the one to Keenan (Allen) on the sideline, and (when) he missed one, I was giving him a little hard time about it. I made a three second attempt to get an MVP chant going on the sideline for Phil. It’s unbelievable. I don’t care what anybody says about him. He’s my quarterback and I’m really happy to have him back there.”
Rivers’ performance lifted the Chargers to the playoff picture with an 8-3 record. They’ve won seven of their last eight after starting the season at 1-2.
The seasoned veteran is also a viable candidate for the Most Valuable Player race at this point. He has passed for 3,119 yards and 26 touchdowns with only six interceptions.
Since starting at QB in 2006, Rivers has led the Chargers to five playoff appearances with a 114-89 record. He has set several franchise records in that span, and he solidified his status as one of the best Chargers ever with the addition of two more milestones to his credit.
