Chargers leave two-QB Jets flailing

SAN DIEGO — There appears to be no stopping Philip Rivers and the Chargers.

Rivers threw two touchdown passes to Antonio Gates and rookie running back Branden Oliver's big day included his first two NFL touchdowns as San Diego posted the league's first shutout this season.

The Jets lost their fourth straight and turned to Michael Vick, who replaced Geno Smith to start the second half. Neither QB was effective. "First off, I apologize to our fans — those that are left," coach Rex Ryan said. "This is on one person, and that's it. … It's on me. Clearly got outcoached."

Rivers and Gates have combined for 65 touchdowns, most in NFL history between a quarterback and a tight end.
