Rivers, Henry connect to tie Chargers-Saints

A 20-yard pass from Philip Rivers to rookie tight end Hunter Henry has tied the Chargers with the Saints at 7-7.

The pass late in the first quarter was Henry’s first career touchdown catch.

It’s probably going to take a bunch of touchdowns to win this one. The Saints opened the game by going 75 yards in 11 plays and scoring on a 1-yard touchdown run by Mark Ingram.

Rivers is off to a 5-for-5 start for 54 yards.
