After the Chargers lost their fifth game in a row to the Chicago Bears on Monday night, quarterback Philip Rivers sounded befuddled in his address to the media.

"We just don't have the answers right now," he said. "It's not surrendering and saying we're not good enough. I'm not saying we're surrendering, but we are what we are and right now that's a 2-7 team on a five-game skid."

Similar to the Chiefs last week, the Chargers now enter their week away from football.

"I think the bye week will be good for us just to take a deep breath," he said. "At this point, you play for respect and when I say respect, the respect of the other guys in the locker room. I really think there's nothing more past it than that. That's what you play for."

The Chargers play the Chiefs at home in two weeks at 3:05 p.m.
