Chargers vs Falcons: Philip Rivers This is Your Team | Player Rankings
After watching Philip Rivers work in this offense today without LaDainian Tomlinson on the field it is easy to see that this team is now officially Rivers. On the other side of the football we saw another talented quarterback look strong as Matt Ryan had a very good game against the Chargers defense.
Rivers is Coming Into His Own
This may seem like another preseason game but it’s really a game in which we saw a preview of what the Chargers would be like if they should lose LT for any stretch of time. In this preview what fantasy owners and football fans can come away with is that this is Philip’s team and he has a lot of weapons to have success.
Once you make the secondary respect the deep routes it opens up opportunities like we saw tonight for running back Michael Bennett whom had a 52 yards touchdown catch and run. The play was just a dump off on a 3rd and about 24 yards to go but Bennett made a few shifty moves and took it to the house.
Oh and by the way Rivers also has this tight end guy named Antonio Gates and he’s not all that shabby over the middle and in the red zone for touchdowns as well.
Matt Ryan is Progressing Well
Running back Michael Turner had another good game tonight but he didn’t convert on a touchdown in the first half against his old team.
While Turner didn’t score quarterback Matt Ryan did have a nice game with a nice stat line of 14 of 20 passing for 140 yards and a touchdown pass. Look for Matt to be a more productive quarterback in his second season as so far in the preseason he looks much better than last year.
