Philip Rivers throws four TD passes to help Chargers end six-game skid

All the San Diego Chargers needed to end a six-game losing streak was another cross-country trip to Jacksonville.

Philip Rivers threw four touchdown passes, two to Antonio Gates, and the Chargers beat the Jaguars, 31-25, on Sunday for their first victory in nearly two months.

Rivers passed Joe Montana (273) and tied Vinny Testaverde (275) for 11th on the NFL's all-time list.
