On a night when the newest AFC West quarterback has thrown two interceptions, the longest-tenured AFC West signal-caller has tossed a pair of picks, too.
Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has completed nine of 11 passes. The two incompletions were picked off by the Dallas defense.
One came when Rivers was trying to connect with receiver Robert Meachem on a long pass. The ball was a bit underthrown, and cornerback Brandon Carr caught the ball.
The other came on the next drive. This time, Rivers hit receiver Vincent Brown in the hands. It bounced off, and Carr was there to reel it in — after juggling it for a second or two.
While the second one wasn’t Rivers’ fault, it shows up that way on the stat sheet. For the preseason, Rivers’ state sheet shows three total interceptions.
