Football and Thanksgiving is a sports tradition going back generations. The Los Angeles (or San Diego) Chargers on Thanksgiving. Not as much. At least since 1969. But the Chargers crashed the usual Dallas Cowboys late afternoon Thanksgiving party with a thumping that even the turkey had to hide his eyes. Led by veteran QB Philip Rivers, the Los Angeles Chargers shredded the Pokes to the tune of 434 yards and 3 TD. Practically throwing against only air, Rivers passes only hit the ground six times in 33 tries. I dropped more spoonfuls of stuffing than that. Rivers and the Chargers coasted to a 28-6 win, winning their fifth in seven games and moving within a game of the free-falling Kansas City Chiefs for first place. Could playoff football be back in LA? It will if Rivers has anything to do with it. He is our Sportsman of the Week!
