Philip Rivers is known for his brash on-field personality, and apparently Chiefs’ head coach Andy Reid wanted nothing to do with it.
In the second half of Kansas City’s 38-41 loss to the Chargers, Rivers found himself near the Chiefs’ sideline and was apparently running his mouth to Reid.
To be fair, he could have been saying something funny or he could have been talking trash. I don’t know what he said, so let’s not get on his case for that—it could have been all in good fun.
What I do know is that Reid wanted nothing to do with what Rivers was saying, and he gave him the old cold shoulder, kind of.

Okay, so perhaps it was more so of a box-out or “butt bump” as GIFDSports called it, but either way, it was arguably one of the bright spots of Kansas City’s loss today.
Sure, Alex Smith’s 294 yards and three touchdowns probably make the list, as would Jamaal Charles’ 115 yards and two touchdowns on the ground, but coming off such a heartbreaking loss—I prefer to focus on this powerful move by the Chiefs’ head man.
Unfortunately, despite Reid’s best efforts, Rivers was able to lead the Chargers to the win, throwing for 392 yards and three touchdowns in the process.
