KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Philip Rivers threw three touchdowns passes and LaDainian Tomlinson rushed for 71 yards and helping the San Diego Chargers trounce the hapless Kansas City Chiefs 37-7 on Sunday.
Rivers was 18 for 30 for 268 yards and three TDs as the Chargers won their third in a row in Kansas City for the first time since 1981.
The Chiefs (1-6) had hoped a sloppy win over Washington the week before might provide some much-needed momentum. But they played miserably in just about every phase of the game, falling behind 20-0 in the first half.
Matt Cassel threw three interceptions and the Chargers scored their final touchdown when Jacob Hester blocked a punt at the 20, chased the ball into the end zone and fell on it.
