Watch Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Phil Rivers participate in the Precision Passing Challenge

Philip Rivers became the first winner of the NFL's 2017 Pro Bowl Precision Passing challenge.

The Chargers quarterback will move to Los Angeles for the 2017 season, after the organisation announced it was shifting the team from San Diego.

Despite leading the league with 21 interceptions this year, Rivers gave fans a taste of his accuracy, aiming at a range of moving targets, with varying speeds and distances from the thrower.

Going into Rivers' attempt, it was Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton leading the charge, but a top performance from Rivers secured him the title.

The six-time Pro Bowler endured a tough season with the Chargers, losing a number of close games to finish bottom of the AFC West. Head coach Mike McCoy was fired soon after their final game, and has been replaced by Anthony Lynn.
