Morning Dump: San Diego Chargers News Around the Web

(Reuters) – San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers led the Chargers to a 31-13 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday, easing the pressure on beleaguered head coach Norv Turner.

Wide receiver Robert Meachem played in every game this season. He won’t Thursday.

Nose tackle Antonio Garay hadn’t been active this season. He is Thursday.

That’s just the start of it. The Chargers, in part due to mounting injuries, most notably at wide receiver, shook up the look of their game-day roster dramatically for Thursday night’s contest against the Chiefs

SAN DIEGO — Norv Turner can breathe a little easier after his San Diego Chargers rediscovered the end zone and ended a three-game losing streak.

Romeo Crennel, though, will surely feel the heat after his Kansas City Chiefs committed four more turnovers and lost their fifth straight game.

What it means: The Chargers showed they can hammer a bad team, and the Chiefs showed there is no reason to think they aren’t the 32nd-best team in the NFL. The Chargers are 4-4 and have ended a three-game losing streak. The Chiefs are 1-7, moving a step closer to the No. 1 overall draft pick and having to decide between Matt Barkley and Geno Smith.

With rumors swirling in San Diego this week that Chargers owner Dean Spanos would fire Turner if the team lost at home to the hapless Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego came through in a big way Thursday night in a 31-13 victory.
