Philip Rivers

Dec. 8, 2013 -- 32nd Birthday

The odds of an NFL player having a game on his birthday are greater than one might expect. Here's a gallery of such players (active as of last year), beginning with the 2013 achievements, then alphabetically thereafter.

Playing in the first and only birthday game in his 10-year NFL career, Philip Rivers completed 21-of-28 passing for 249 yards and three touchdowns in a 34-17 victory over the New York Giants. His 137.4 QB rating that day was his highest of the season.
