Philip Rivers throws pick, recovers fumble just like he drew it up

Everything's coming up Rivers!

December hasn't been a very good month for Philip Rivers, but he's doing whatever he can to change his luck ... like erasing his own interceptions.

It's second-and-8 from the Chargers' 41-yard line. Rivers throws deep down the middle of the field, and the Dolphins snag the interception. Reshad Jones returns it 42 yards then fumbles the ball. Bounce, bounce, bounce ... and guess who comes up with it? Rivers.

He recovered the ball on San Diego's 38-yard line. Basically, it's a 2-yard loss but with a new set of downs that resulted in a field goal and a 9-0 Chargers lead over the Dolphins.

Everything's coming up Rivers!
