Philip Rivers and Antonio Gates have been teammates since 2004. That’s 11 years together. They’re one of the most prolific QB-TE combos in NFL history. But you can see their frustrations setting in here today against the Chiefs: After having to settle for a field goal against the Chiefs, the Chargers went to the sideline and Rivers and Gates got into a verbal spat.
Gates was heated and appeared to say, “I’m gonna beat your ass”; Rivers fired back. But they’re professionals, so the beef was quickly swashed.
The Chiefs lead, 9-3, late in the 1st half.
