Chargers Slam Jaguars 38-14 in Home Opener

Jacksonville Jaguars v San Diego Chargers

Philip Rivers couldn’t help but saying it in the locker room at halftime.

“It’s kind of funny, isn’t it, up 21 again.”

Unlike a week earlier, the San Diego Chargers didn’t turn a three-touchdown lead into a soul-crushing loss. They added on, beating the mistake-prone Jacksonville Jaguars 38-14 Sunday.

Rivers matched his career high with four touchdown passes, including two to Travis Benjamin, and Melvin Gordon ran for one score and had his first 100-yard game.

The Chargers (1-1) bounced back from their stunning loss at Kansas City, when they blew a 21-point third-quarter lead and fell 33-27 in overtime.

“It was huge. I’m glad it happened again right away,” Rivers said. “It was good for us mentally to get that put to bed that in the sense, `When we’re up 21, guys, we’re going to win,’ instead of that, `Oh, we’re hanging on.’ ”

The Jaguars started 0-2 for the fourth time in five seasons. They crossed midfield only six times and committed three turnovers.
