Dolphins 31, Chargers 24

Four INTs in fourth lift Fins

SAN DIEGO — Kiko Alonso intercepted Philip Rivers' pass and returned it 60 yards for a touchdown with 1:01 left to lift the Dolphins to their fourth straight win.

Miami intercepted Rivers four times, all in the fourth quarter.

Alonso jumped in front of Tyrell Williams and the linebacker outraced everybody into the end zone for the winner.

Two plays into the ensuing drive, Rivers was intercepted again, by cornerback Tony Lippett, his second of the game.

Rivers threw three touchdowns to move past John Elway for eighth place on the career list with 301.

Rivers' 51-yard touchdown pass to Williams with 4:04 left gave the Chargers a 24-21 lead.

Miami came right back to get a tying 27-yard field goal from Andrew Franks. That was set up by Ryan Tannehill's 56-yard pass to DeVante Parker and a roughing-the-passer call that put the ball on the San Diego 10.

Damien Williams scored on a 2-yard run and on an 18-yard pass from Tannehill for the Dolphins.

Down 21-17, the Chargers blew a great opportunity after Jakeem Grant muffed a punt and Darrell Stuckey recovered it at the Miami 5. Thanks to a penalty, San Diego had five chances from the 5 or closer before Rivers was intercepted by Lippett in the end zone.
