Quarterback Philip Rivers led San Diego to scores on two of three drives, then head coach Norv Turner earned his club score another touchdown with two successful challenges on a single series in the Chargers’ 20-7 victory over Dallas.
Rivers went 8 of 11 for 92 yards, with a 7-yard touchdown pass to tight end Randy McMichael.
Dallas’ Tony Romo was 8 of 12 for 58 yards, with a 6-yard touchdown pass to Jason Witten. Romo also threw an interception on an ill-advised pass.
Turner got an interception by Billy Volek overturned, and got a touchdown for Ryan Mathews on a play officials declared him out of bounds inside the 1.
Mathews outperformed Mike Tolbert in this one, but Tolbert is still the favorite for work around the goal line.
