Philip Rivers threw three touchdowns as the Chargers rolled to a 38-14 win in Jacksonville on Monday.
Fifty-seven days. Eight weeks. Nearly two months. Seven games.
That’s how long San Diego waited between wins.
Philip Rivers threw for three touchdowns as the Chargers absorbed back-to-back touchdowns by Jacksonville in the second quarter to outlast a beat-up Jaguars team and win, 38-14, on Monday at EverBank Field.
“We got a complete team effort,” Head Coach Norv Turner said. “I thought we played well in all three phases.”
Rivers, playing behind a different offensive line combo for a fourth consecutive game, shredded Jacksonville’s defense in his best performance all season. He’d completed 20-of-25 passes for 283 yards and three touchdowns after the first drive of the third quarter before Turner prescribed a heavy dose of Ryan Mathews and Mike Tolbert.
“We finally put a complete game together,” Rivers said. “It’s been a rough six weeks. It’s nice to feel what it feels like to win a game.”
