Phillip Rivers threw for three touchdowns, leading the San Diego Chargers to a 21-13 win over the Houston Texans Sunday.
The defense held strong for the first quarter as no team scored, but the Texans struck first in the second to make it 7-0. However, Rivers quickly did away with their lead by throwing for two TD’s in the last seven minutes of the half to take the lead 14-0.
Houston would kick two field goals in the fourth quarter, but it wouldn’t be enough as Rivers threw a third TD in the fourth as well.
In the end, he had 242 yards, three touchdowns and an interception on 22-30 passing.
The Bolts’ record now stands at 5-6 in a top-heavy AFC West; they head back to San Diego to take on the Buccaneers next Sunday.
