SAN DIEGO (AP) — Philip Rivers would love to be just like Tom Brady.
Seriously, who wouldn’t want to win a Super Bowl in his first season as a starting quarterback, then add on a couple more? That’s what Brady did in compiling his gaudy 11-1 postseason record.
For Rivers to follow that path, he and his San Diego Chargers will have to beat the playoff-seasoned New England Patriots on Sunday in a divisional-round game at Qualcomm Stadium.
“Obviously I understand it, as all quarterbacks do, that you have a won-loss record attached to your name,” Rivers said Wednesday. “I don’t want to do it for me. I want to do it for us.”
