It only took eleven weeks and an injury-depleted opponent, but the Chargers offense we expected to see all season showed up on Monday Night Football.
Philip Rivers threw two touchdowns in the final two minutes of the half to put San Diego ahead 24-14 at the break. And then Rivers added another bomb to Malcom Floyd to start the second half to make it 31-14. Rivers has hit five plays over 20 yards.
Blaine Gabbert enjoyed perhaps his best half before a late interception in the second quarter gave Rivers the ball back for a chance for another score. Now Gabbert has to try to show he can lead a team from a large deficit.
Unfortunately, the Jaguars suffered what appeared to be a serious injury when defensive end John Chick was carted off with a knee injury.
