Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said he's impressed how his Chiefs counterpart, Alex Smith, has diffused what could have been an awkward situation. The Chiefs drafted QB Patrick Mahomes II in the first round. “Obviously it's from afar but it seems like Alex has handled it absolutely as good as it can be handled, not only the way he's handled it from a media standpoint but just the way he's handled it with his play . . . I don't think there's any question who the quarterback of that team is,'' Rivers said. The Chiefs and Chargers meet on Sunday in Los Angeles.

Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace, who has two catches for 15 yards this season, repeatedly said he "needs the rock" but emphasized that he's a team player. Asked if there is a level of frustration, Wallace said: "Of course. I play wide receiver. I don't play to block. But at the same time, when you're winning, it makes it all good. It's always masked when you're winning. As long as we're winning, we're good. I'm going to find ways to make plays. I will make plays."
