Virtual Game Ball: Philip Rivers lights up Bengals in 31-27 win

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher 

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Philip Rivers has received our virtual game ball for his performance in 2020 Week 6. The 38-year-old had one of his best performances since signing with the Colts. 

Rivers had 371 passing yards in a 31-27 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. He also had three touchdown passes and one interception in the contest.

The three touchdown game was his most since a Week 13 game during the Jacksonville Jaguars in a 45-10 win on Dec. 8, 2019. He had 314 passing yards and three touchdowns in the game.

The quarterback — who signed a one-year deal with the Colts in the off-season after spending his entire career with the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers — had his best throwing game since Week 10 during the 2018 season. In that particular game, Rivers had 401 passing yards in a 23-22 loss to the Denver Broncs on Nov. 18, 2018. 

In the contest, he also had two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Rivers has had two games, where he has thrown for more than 300 yards in the season. During the first game of the season — which just happened to be his first game with the Colts — he had 363 passing yards in a 27-20 loss to the Jaguars. 

In the loss to the Jaguars, he had one touchdown pass and two interceptions.
