The San Diego Chargers played a safe game avoiding mistakes and making a few big plays and ended up with a big 24-6 win over the 0-7 Jacksonville Jaguars. Mike McCoy's team now has a winning record for the first time this season. This was total domination of a bad football team by the San Diego Chargers. The Jacksonville Jaguars are 0-7 for a reason and "coaching" is probably not that reason. The Chargers pass rush looked good despite them missing their top three pass rushers on the roster. The team totaled six sacks against Chad Henne including two for Thomas Keiser (who was on the practice squad until two weeks ago). The only turnover of the game came off of a miscommunication between Henne and Justin Blackmon which resulted in an easy interception for Marcus Gilchrist. Maurice Jones-Drew had 56 yards on 11 total touches but the Chargers offense put up enough points to force Jacksonville to go away from the running game relatively early. Philip Rivers played a mistake-free game if you don't count the decision to try and run the ball in for a touchdown at the end of the first half. The offense didn't turn the ball over once and Rivers completed 22 of 26 passes.
San Diego wins 24-6 against hapless Jacksonville team
