Philip Rivers injected some offense and excitement into Monday Night Football, throwing for two touchdowns in just more than a minute to end the first half against the Jaguars. The two scores gave the Chargers a 24-14 lead heading into the locker room.
So far, Rivers has thrown for two touchdowns and more than 200 yards while completing better than 75 percent of his passes. In other words: He's been the *good* Philip Rivers from previous seasons.
