RALEIGH, N.C. - North Carolina State junior quarterback Philip Rivers looks at teammate T.A. McLendon and sees a reflection of himself. Rivers took the Atlantic Coast Conference by storm with a dazzling freshman season in 2000, and he has grown into one of the more dangerous passers in the land. As the Wolfpack's freshman tailback sensation, McLendon is charting the same course, having already become the top scorer in the league. At 6 feet 5, 236 pounds, Rivers is big and tough enough to absorb nasty hits in the pocket without letting it affect his production or his unflappable demeanor in the huddle.

- Ravens defensive end Arthur Jones waited a long time to experience the moment of tackling an NFL quarterback to the ground. During the 27th game of his NFL career, Jones recorded his first two sacks as he contributed to the Ravens harassing San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers . Unlike last year when Rivers seemingly had an eternity to stand in the pocket and shred the defense in a decisive win over Baltimore, the Ravens...

Chargers@Titans 7:30 p.m. [NFL Network] We always thought that Mr. December was Santa Claus, but with 17 consecutive wins in the last month of the year dating to 2006, San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers, left, also knows how to deliver.

Every week, I hope to bring you a quick Q&A with someone who covers the Ravens' opponent that week. The Ravens left for the West Coast on Friday and play the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, so I reached out to Michael Gehlken, the Chargers beat writer for the San Diego Union-Tribune, to chat about Sunday's game. MV: What is going on with Philip Rivers? Many chalked up his struggles a year ago to it just being a rough season for him, but the same issues remain and he doesn't look like the same quarterback.

Kevin Cowherd Ravens 20, Chargers 13 Maybe it's the sunshine. Maybe it's the palm trees. Something comes over the Ravens on these West Coast trips. The Jekyl and Hyde Chargers have lost five of their last six, but still have a shot at the playoffs. This one will be close. And ugly. Edward Lee Chargers 28, Ravens 17 The Chargers may be reeling, but historically, they have feasted on the Ravens in San Diego. Quarterback Philip Rivers is no Byron Leftwich, and he will take advantage of the Ravens' re-tooled secondary to find tight end Antonio Gates and wide receiver Malcom Floyd for big plays.

I had a nice little discussion with a couple of friends the other day, one being a former NFL player. We were talking about the upgrade of quarterbacks the Ravens will face in the playoffs, and how they will be better than the ones the Ravens faced during the regular season. I agreed partially, but also noted that the Ravens had already played against Trent Green and Philip Rivers. He said that Mr. Brady of the Patriots and Mr. Manning of the Colts were like Mr. McNair, unflappable. That's when the argument began.

No more messing around with pretenders. We won't know after tonight if the Chargers can finish their run, but we'll know if it was over before it really started. The Baltimore Ravens (10-3) and their very scary defense come to Snapdragonny Qualcomm Stadium for a nationally televised game that might not tell us all we need to know but will maybe tell us if the Chargers (6-7) have any chance of resembling what we thought we saw in summer. “It's too late for a measuring stick,” Philip Rivers said.

Of the Ravens' remaining opponents, the toughest might be the 6-7 San Diego Chargers, who were the consensus favorites to win the AFC West before the season. The Chargers have been one of 2011's biggest disappointments, but they pose a serious threat to the 10-3 Ravens, who must win tonight to maintain control of the AFC's top playoff seed. Here are five storylines to watch as the Ravens play the desperate Chargers in San Diego tonight: 1.

Jimmy Smith encountered the first test of his blossoming career when the Ravens rookie cornerback was targeted often in Sunday night's 34-14 loss to the San Diego Chargers. Starting for the injured Lardarius Webb, Smith, the organization's first-round pick in April, was targeted at least five times in the first half by quarterback Philip Rivers, and Smith eventually surrendered a 28-yard touchdown to wide receiver Malcom Floyd in the third quarter. After the game, Smith chalked it up to a learning experience.

Despite appearing to run and cut well on the injured toe on his left foot, cornerback Lardarius Webb was replaced by rookie Jimmy Smith as a starter in the Ravens' eventual 34-14 loss to the San Diego Chargers. Contrary to conventional wisdom, that did not bother Webb, who had been the defense's season-opening starter with Cary Williams. “I think we were just being cautious about it,” said Webb, who leads the team in interceptions with four. “Next week, we're going to see how it works again.

Fresh off of a three-sack, three-forced fumble outing against the Indianapolis Colts, Terrell Suggs was reminded of the fleeting nature of momentum. The Ravens outside linebacker was shut out by the San Diego Chargers in their 34-14 rout of the Ravens at Snapdragon Stadium. Suggs had a quiet two-tackle evening that was exacerbated by an unnecessary roughness call for slapping the helmet of tight end Randy McMichael and an offsides penalty. The performance snapped a streak of seven sacks in Suggs' previous three games.

Jimmy Smith's third start of his NFL career was an uneasy one. The Ravens rookie cornerback was tested early and often by the San Diego Chargers in Sunday night's contest at Snapdragon Stadium, which included surrendering a 28-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Malcom Floyd . Confident as always, Smith appeared unshaken. "I've been beat before," he said. "It happens. It's football. I know what happened. It was double moves I got beat on. " Making the start for Lardarius Webb , Smith, the organization's first-round pick in April, was targeted three times by Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers on San Diego's first possession of the game.

In perhaps the most telling indication of Philip Rivers' comfortable day at the office, the San Diego Chargers quarterback's powder-blue jersey and white pants looked as clean as they had when he emerged from the locker room at Snapdragon Stadium for pre-game warm-ups. That's because the Ravens failed to generate much of a pass rush against the Chargers, and Rivers took advantage in the team's 34-14 rout. Rivers completed 16-of-22 passes for 259 yards and one touchdown as he enjoyed a wide pocket for much of the evening.
