San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers appears to have left his turnover issues in 2012, as he had his second straight game without an interception Sunday, leading the Chargers to a 24-6 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Outside of a two-touchdown, three-interception games against Oakland in Week 5, Rivers has 13 touchdowns and only two interceptions on the season.
Rivers threw for 285 yards Sunday on 22-of-26 passing, with one touchdown pass. He added four rushing yards on two carries, and managed a season-best 125.2 passer rating.
Fantasy impact: It's interesting that this appears to be a completely different Philip Rivers than fantasy owners had to tolerate the last couple seasons. With 15 points on Sunday, Rivers has double-digit fantasy points in all seven games this season, something only a handful of quarterbacks can say.
The Chargers have their bye next week, but come out of that with back-to-back games against Washington and Denver, two defenses that should definitely allow points to a quarterback. Rivers is a must-start in Weeks 9 and 10.
