    Good morning.

    Taking a quick look at the standings on Monday, the San Diego Chargers (3-1) find themselves at the top of the AFC West, a half-game in front of the Denver Broncos (2-1), who had a bye this week.

    The Kansas City Chiefs (1-2) host New England on "Monday Night Football," while the Oakland Raiders (0-4) suffered another embarrassing loss, this time across the pond in another country at the hands of the Miami Dolphins in London.

    ESPN NFL Nation Raiders reporter Bill Williamson writes that the time is right to fire Oakland head coach Dennis Allen.

    After the results of this weekend, Tom Krasovic of U-T San Diego wonders if the Chargers have passed the Broncos.

    Peter King of Sports Illustrated places Philip Rivers No. 1 in his MVP race a quarter of the way through the season. King: “The thing you notice about Rivers now is that his confidence isn’t getting him in trouble the way it did under Norv Turner -- he’s forcing very few passes. He’s a 74.5% passer during the three-game streak, with no interceptions.”

    Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego writes Shareece Wright could miss time due to a knee injury suffered against Jacksonville.

    Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego writes that Rivers is more than the Chargers’ MVP; he’s the best quarterback in the NFL right now.

    John Breech of CBS Sports gives the Chargers an A grade for the team’s performance against Jacksonville. Breech: “The Chargers don’t have any running backs because they're all injured, but that doesn’t even matter because the Chargers have Philip Rivers. With 25 percent of the season in the books, Rivers is making an early case for MVP. The Chargers quarterback threw three touchdown passes against Jacksonville. The most impressive part might have been that they were all over 24 yards (24, 43, 47).”

    Bernie Wilson of the Associated Press says that Rivers powered San Diego to victory over Jacksonville.

    Jim Alexander of the Riverside Press-Enterprise writes that with no running game, one offensive weapon was enough for the Chargers -- Rivers.

    Ricky Henne of Chargers.com reports that San Diego’s defense came through in a big way against the Jaguars.

    Rick Drummond of Pro Football Focus points to Dwight Freeney, Brandon Flowers and Rivers having strong performances for the Chargers in his review of Sunday’s game.
