SAN DIEGO (AP) — Philip Rivers matched his career-high with four touchdown passes, including two to Travis Benjamin, Melvin Gordon ran for one score and had his first 100-yard game in the San Diego Chargers’ 38-14 victory against the mistake-prone Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday.
The Chargers (1-1) bounced back from their stunning loss at Kansas City, when they blew a 21-point third-quarter lead and fell 33-27 in overtime.
The Jaguars started 0-2 for the fourth time in five seasons. They crossed midfield only six times and committed three turnovers.
Casey Hayward led the Chargers’ defense with two interceptions of Blake Bortles.
