Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – Chip Kelly wanted his offense to move
faster, but the Philadelphia Eagles might’ve scored too fast.

And with 1:55 to go, Philip Rivers did what he had been doing all afternoon.

He picked the Eagles’ defense apart.

Rivers was 4-of-5 for 48 yards on the Chargers’ final drive before Nick Novak
booted through a go-ahead 46-yard field goal with seven seconds left to lift
San Diego past Philadelphia, 33-30, in a back-and-forth thriller.

Rivers, who threw for 419 yards on 36-of-47 passing, got the ball back after
Alex Henery kicked the game-tying field goal. He hit Antonio Gates for gains
of 15 and 21 yards on the first two plays of the trek.

Danny Woodhead hauled in a critical six-yard reception to move the sticks on a
3rd-and-4 at the Philadelphia 37-yard line. Novak split the uprights four
plays later.
