How San Diego Snapped the Skid

Finally feeling the heat, Chargers' head coach Norv Turner opened up the passing game and San Diego's offense opened up a can of wup-ass on woeful Jacksonville as a result. The 38-14 win over the Jaguars ended a six-game losing streak for San Diego and kept the Chargers alive in the wacky, wild AFC West.

Philip Rivers played much better with the extra time provided by a reworked offensive line which included Tackle Jared Gaither, dropped by Kansas City only just last week. Running back Ryan Mathews also found plenty of running room against Jacksonville and the Chargers' defense played just well enough to effectively shut down what was a very one-dimensional Jaguar offense.

Although the Chargers playoff chances remain slim to say the least, the win may have saved coach Turner's job in San Diego for at least one more week.
