    Philip Rivers Named PFWA Comeback Player of Year
    Philip Rivers has been named the Pro Football Writers of America Comeback Player of 2013.


    After suffering his first losing season as an NFL quarterback in 2012, Philip Rivers was named the Pro Football Writers of America Comeback Player of the Year for 2013.

    In doing so, Rivers joins Adrian Peterson, Matthew Stafford, Michael Vick and Tom Brady to round out the last five winners of the award.

    Here is what the PFWA said about bestowing the honor upon the Bolts quarterback:

    "Rivers, with the help of head coach Mike McCoy, offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, who won the PFWA’s 2013 Assistant Coach of the Year award, and position coach Frank Reich, improved his completion percentage to a career-high and NFL-leading 69.5 percent (378 of 544) for 4,478 yards, 32 touchdowns and only 11 interceptions. The 32 TDs was his second-highest total in a season, and the 4,478 passing yards was the third-highest of his career. He set a club record with 378 completions and tied the club record for passer rating with 105.5.

    Behind Rivers, the Chargers won their last four regular-season games to finish 9-7 and qualified for the AFC playoffs for the first time since 2009 after a 7-9 record in 2012. Rivers threw for 400 yards three times, tossed three or more touchdown passes in six games and completed a career-high 36 passes in a victory at Philadelphia in Week Two.

    During the Chargers’ season-closing four-game win streak, Rivers was 74 for 110 passing (67.3 completion percentage) for 845 yards, nine touchdowns, two interceptions and a 142.6 passer rating.”

    Cool, now he can set that up in his trophy case next to his NFL Champion blue ribbon.
