San Diego Chargers 52 - New Orleans Saints 14
The Chargers continue their blistering start to the season, fighting off an early showing by the Saints to run away with this one. The teams traded TDs in the first half to make it 14-14 until Aqib Talib broke the pattern with a pick six. The Chargers never looked back, as their defense stepped up in a big way from that point forward.
Philip Rivers was 8 of 9 for 157 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INT.
Schaub was 16 of 28 for 198 yards, 0 TDs and 2 INTs.
Charles carried it 10 times for 120 yards and a TD. Ridley added 9 carries for 59 yards and a TD.
Forte carried 13 times for 68 yards and 2 scores. Schaub added 3 carries for 34 yards, though he fumbled the last one.
Brandon Marshall had 3 catches for 59 yards and 2 TDs. Hartline added 2 catches for 47 and a TD.
Heath Miller lead the Saints with 4 catches for 69 yards.
The Chargers got picks from both Talib (for six) and Haden. Haden also recovered a fumble which was knocked out by Spikes. Shaughnessy, Jordan and Hightower each had a sack. David Wilson had a punt return for a TD.
The Saints didn't show up in the defensive box score, not forcing a single punt and only making the Chargers settle for a FG once in the 4th.
Chargers move to 5-0. I'm not sure what it is about this team, but I'm so much better on offense with it than I am with the Broncos. Definitely very happy with how the season's going so far.
