JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Philip Rivers threw for 294 yards and three touchdowns, burning Jacksonville’s depleted secondary early and often, and the San Diego Chargers beat the Jaguars 38-14 on Monday night to snap a six-game losing streak.

The Chargers (5-7) could have used Rivers’ turnaround sooner. The three-time Pro Bowl selection leads the NFL in interceptions (17) and turnovers (21), and was a key part of San Diego’s disappointing season.

He was nearly perfect against Jacksonville (3-9), adding to the team’s tumultuous week.

Rivers completed 22 of 28 passes — hooking up with Vincent Brown, Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd for long scores — before sitting out the final few minutes. He finished with a 146.1 QB rating, his highest of the season.

The Chargers scored on five of their first six drives, then sent most of the home crowd scrambling for the exits with Ryan Mathews’ 31-yard TD run in the fourth.
