JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Philip Rivers threw for 294 yards and three touchdowns, burning Jacksonville's depleted secondary early and often, and San Diego beat the Jaguars, 38-14, on Monday night to snap a six-game losing streak.
Rivers, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, leads the NFL in interceptions (17) and turnovers (21), and was a key part of San Diego's disappointing 5-7 season.
But he was nearly perfect against Jacksonville (3-9), adding to the Chargers' tumultuous week.
Rivers completed 22 of 28 passes - hooking up with Vincent Brown, Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd for long scores - before sitting out the final few minutes. He finished with a 146.1 QB rating, his highest of the season.
The Chargers scored on five of their first six drives, with Ryan Mathews adding a 31-yard TD run in the fourth.
