I live in SD, and watch a lot of their games (not "all" of the games, because they are regularly blacked out). Anyway, the thing with Rivers is that those picks come at the end of games, when he either:
a) already has the lead and then GIVES the other team the ball,
b) while trying to tie the game.
He might throw for 200 in the first 59 minutes, and then go for another 55 in the final minute... only to throw a game-losing INT. Ergo, Lewis & Allen need to be prepared.
Simply, right now, this season, Rivers is the opposite of "clutch."
