Rivers intent on getting Chargers above .500

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers is clear.

Unlike his knack this season for checking out of plays at the line of scrimmage, Rivers isn't checking out of the team's hotel this weekend.

"Once in Jacksonville," Rivers said, "I'm in Jacksonville."

The Chargers visit the Jaguars on Sunday, and even if Rivers' wife, Tiffany, gives birth to their seventh child, the QB isn't bailing.

Rivers will be focusing on getting the Chargers (3-3) above .500 for the first time this season. Even with the Chargers gaining momentum with an upset victory against Indianapolis on Monday night, Rivers doesn't want to hear that the Jaguars are winless.

Says Rivers: "I don't believe in momentum, unless we're starting a game an hour after the game we just played."
