AFC West Pro Bowl notes

In comments provided by the Chargers, San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers credited head coach Norv Turner for helping him make the Pro Bowl.

This is the third season that Rivers and Turner, one of the game’s all-time noted quarterback tutors, have worked together.

“He’s been huge in my progress,” Rivers said of Turner. "I knew very early on when we first met that we thought a lot alike and have similar approaches to the game. That helped immediately because we were able to understand how each other thinks. Running this system and his ability to coach the position is exceptional. It’s been a great fit.”
