Chargers Keep Up Road Success; Top Jets 27-17

The Chargers may have not had a lot to play for lately, but for the second time in three weeks on the road, the team came out and outplayed a former AFC powerhouse.

Two weeks ago, it was Pittsburgh, Sunday, they outplayed the big bad New York Jets in Metlife Stadium, beating up a bland Jets offense to the tune of 27-17.

Philip Rivers threw a pair of touchdown passes, and the Bolts defense beat up Jets quarterback Greg McElroy.

Rivers completed 11-of-22 passes for 165 yards and Micheal Spurlock added a 63-yard punt return touchdown for the Chargers (6-9), who have won two of their last three.

Rex Ryan
named McElroy the starter earlier this week after Mark Sanchez turned the ball over five times in a 14-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans that eliminated the Jets (6-9) from playoff contention this past Monday.

The second-year signal-caller finished 14-of-24 for 185 yards with an interception and a fumble lost and was sacked 11 times in the setback, New York’s second in a row.

Shonn Greene carried the ball 14 times for 38 yards and two scores in the loss.

Despite the win, the Chargers will finish with their first losing record since going 4-12 under Marty Schottenheimer in 2003.

The Chargers lead the all- time series, 20-12-1.
