Philip Rivers rolls after runaway Cowboy, makes big tackle in loss
SAN DIEGO -- Philip Rivers doesn't ease up, even in a meaningless exhibition game.The San Diego Chargers' $93 million quarterback chased Dallas Cowboys safety Barry Church for about 70 yards before making a touchdown-saving tackle after a turnover on Saturday night. He even popped the ball loose, although the play had been whistled dead.
Otterson allowed the sack that led to the game-deciding safety. It came several hours after the Chargers announced that veteran left tackle Tra Thomas retired, leaving them woefully thin at a crucial position due to Marcus McNeill's holdout.
