Philip Rivers Leads Chargers to 9th Win, Expecting 9th Child

Published

on

Last night former NC State ACC Player of the Year Philip Rivers led the Chargers to their 9th victory of the season (9-3). The victory was yet another come-from-behind-victory for Rivers, erasing a 23-6 halftime deficit, and ultimately guiding Los Angeles down the field on a 64-yard drive (11 play), resulting in a 29-yard field goal as time ticked off the clock.

News also broke yesterday that Rivers and his wife Tiffany are expecting their 9th child.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter also chimed in that the Rivers family will soon be able to field an entire offensive unit.

Rivers finished the night 26 of 36 for 299 yards and 2 touchdowns (0 interceptions) with a 115.4 QB Rating.

He continues to prove that he’s one of the most clutch signal callers in NFL history. Rivers has now led the Chargers to 7 comeback victories after trailing by 16+ points. That ties Peyton Manning’s NFL record.

Rivers has also thrown multiple touchdowns in 13 straight games, which is the 2nd longest streak in NFL history, and only 2 away from Manning’s record.

Former NC State Consensus All-American Bradley Chubb picked up 2 sacks in Denver’s 20-14 loss to the 49ers today, bringing his season total to 12, breaking Von Miller’s Broncos rookie record (11.5 – 2011).

Sack #12

Here’s a survey of company he joined today, and the 6 players he is still has to pass to claim the NFL Rookie Sack record.

Not bad company to be keeping.

If you’re wondering if the record matters to Chubb, he does.

It’s on his bathroom mirror.

Watch out Mr. Kearse. Chubb is coming for you.

Jaylen Samuels Sparking a Fantasy Football Controversy

Published

on

Former NC State Swiss Army Knife Jaylen Samuels scored his 2nd NFL touchdown on Sunday in the Steelers loss to the Chargers, and with James Conner being ruled out of this Sunday’s game versus the Raiders, Jay Sam is set to start his first career NFL game.

Samuels is being snatched up right and left by Yahoo Fantasy Football Managers across the world, not only because of the guaranteed increased workload, but because Yahoo lists him as both a running back and a tight end.

People have been trying to figure out what position Jaylen Samuels plays for years. Nothing has changed.

Kudos to all the people who were smart enough to stash him away, and get to start a running back at the tight end this week.

Published

on

Former NC State Defensive Tackle BJ Hill had a record breaking 3-sack performance on Sunday in the Giants 30-27 victory over the Bears.

Hill now has 5 sacks on the year, tying the Giants rookie record for sacks in a season with 4 games left.

BJ Hill – 5 – 2018
Cornelius Griffin – 5 – 2000
Andy Headen – 5 – 1983

(Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor had 9.5 sacks in 1981, but sacks didn’t become an official statistical category until 1982. Sorry LT.)

Hill currently leads the team in sacks, and a rookie has NEVER led the Giants in sacks.
