Gordon was great, but don't forget elder Bolts - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
Gates (5 catches, 75 yards) caught a touchdown pass to cap the first drive, putting ground-oriented Tennessee in a hole and leaving the eight-time Pro Bowler three TD receptions behind Tony Gonzalez for the most all-time by an NFL tight end.

The Chargers led 16-0 after their first three possessions, but Tennessee came back with 21 of the next 24 points to take a 21-19 lead early in the third quarter. But the Chargers scored two TDs in less than three minutes, the second coming on Dwight Lowery's 35-yard fumble return (Korey Toomer forced the fumble and recovered it originally, only to lose the ball himself).

Gordon and the offense were buoyed by the Chargers’ opportunistic defense, which scored touchdowns off two Marcus Mariota turnovers -- one a Dwight Lowery 36-yard fumble return and the other a 33-yard interception return by Brandon Flowers for a score in the fourth quarter.

While the Titans got the ball back after the Chargers kicked a field goal in the fourth quarter, they didn’t hold onto it for too long.  Facing a crucial 3rd-and-6 from their own 29, Marcus Mariota lobbed a pass in the direction of Kendall Wright.  However, Brandon Flowers cut in front of the receiver to pick off the ball and run it back 33 yards for the touchdown.
