The Los Angeles Chargers (7-3) laid a stinker last week at home against the Denver Broncos. Philip Rivers will look to bounce back as the Chargers welcome rookie quarterback Josh Rosen and the Arizona Cardinals (2-8) as Week 12 action continues on Sunday.

Preview

Last week’s loss to the Chargers ended an impressive six-game winning streak for the Chargers. Quarterback Philip Rivers took the heaviest of the burdens following the one-point loss to Denver.

Rivers threw two interceptions last week, and made a crucial decision late to throw the football away — out of bounds — instead of taking a sack/ The play stopped the clock, effectively giving Case Keenum and the Broncos enough time on the clock to drive down the field, attempt, and hit the game-winning field goal.

Rivers has to be better, and will look forward not backward after last week’s disappointment.

“We’ve got a lot to look ahead to and it’s right in front of us with Arizona. Our approach seems to be really good to getting back on track and doing the things we have been doing.

Any time you lose, it’s humbling in this league,” said Rivers, who threw two interceptions. “That’s collectively and individually and that’s why I say it’s a week-to-week game. You got to regroup and go because no one is going to feel sorry for you.”

Running back Mevlin Gordon (hamstring/knee) is listed as questionable, but after reports circulated there was a real chance he could miss this game for “maintenance” related issues, he will play. Wide receiver Tyrell Williams is a game-time decision with a quad injury.

The Cardinals seek their first win of the season against a team that is not the San Francisco 49ers. Entering Sunday, Arizona is 2-0 against the NFC West rival, and 0-8 against everybody else, including a disappointing last-second loss (like Los Angeles) 23-21 at home last week against the Oakland Raiders.
