The Chargers held on for most of the game until Rivers was able to narrowly push them ahead at the very end. Rivers rebounded from an ugly first-quarter interception to Daryl Smith to deliver his best game in weeks, going 34-of-45 for 383 yards and three touchdowns despite the pressure of a steady Baltimore pass rush all game.
