Analysis: The Chargers had a scary moment when franchise quarterback Philip Rivers hit his throwing hand on a defender's hand late in the second quarter. Rivers then threw an incompletion in the end zone on third down and headed into the locker room early with a trainer. "I'm good," Rivers said. "Had this been the regular season, I would have stayed in. That was it for me anyway, just the first half."

The Chargers announced the extension Saturday night. Financial details weren't immediately available. It was believed that Rivers will average at least $20 million annually in the new deal. Rivers is entering the final year of a six-year extension he signed in August 2009 worth $93 million.
Analysis: The extension comes as team chairman Dean Spanos has angered many Chargers fans by exploring a move to the Los Angeles area. The Chargers walked away from negotiations for a new stadium in San Diego in mid-June. Mayor Kevin Faulconer has said that if the sides haven't agreed to a term sheet by Sept. 11, there won't be a special election in January. Rivers has been San Diego's starting quarterback since 2006. He played through back and chest injuries in 2014.
