Chargers 43, Titans 35

Gordon, turnovers carry Chargers

SAN DIEGO — Melvin Gordon ran for a career-high 196 yards and scored the go-ahead TD on a 1-yard run, and defensive backs Dwight Lowery and Brandon Flowers scored on turnovers by Marcus Mariota to lead the Chargers. The Titans haven't won in San Diego since 1990.

Gordon, who leads the league with 11 touchdowns, scored on a 1-yard run with 5:28 left in the third quarter to give the Chargers a 26-21 lead. He also broke a 47-yard run in the closing minutes.

Mariota, who led the Titans to a 21-19 lead by guiding two quick scoring drives on either side of halftime, helped the Chargers take a 12-point lead when he fumbled late in the third quarter. Lowery picked it up and ran 43 yards for a score and a 33-21 lead.

With San Diego up by eight, Flowers jumped a route, intercepted Mariota and returned it 33 yards for a 43-28 lead with 4:51 left.
