At least the San Diego Chargers know that they can beat a 3rd string quarterback. The New York Jets decided to start Greg McElroy at quarterback and the Bolts put pressure on him all game long. The Chargers finished with 11 sacks on the day. McElroy held onto the ball too long and couldn’t get anything moving for the Jets offense.

Philip Rivers didn’t commit a turnover this week and threw a pair of touchdowns. One touchdown to Danario Alexander and another to Antonio Gates. The Gates touchdown reception moved him to the top of the Chargers all time lost for TD receptions passing Lance Alworth.

The Chargers now have a record of 6-9 this season and will finish it up next week against the Oakland Raiders.

    A bad team beat a really crappy team; looks like the Jets “tebowed” themselves.
