Final Score: Chargers 31, Jets 0
The San Diego Chargers dominated the New York Jets 31-0 Sunday afternoon.
Here’s how it happened.
Chargers Dominate First Half
The San Diego Chargers completely dominated the first half against the New York Jets, taking a 21-0 lead into the break.
Quarterback Philip Rivers hooked up with tight end Antonio Gates twice for the first two touchdowns – one from eight yards and one from 12 – while Branden Oliver scored the third touchdown with a 15 yard run (vine above).
Chargers Continue Blowout
New Half. New Jets quarterback in Michael Vick. Same rout.
After stopping new Jets quarterback Michael Vick, who is replacing Geno Smith, the Chargers marched 90 yards down the field to add to their lead with another touchdown, which was highlighted by a 52-yard run by Oliver (vine above) to extend their lead to 28-0.
Vick Gets Rough Welcome
After San Diego added a field goal to extend its lead to 31-0, Jets quarterback Michael Vick had a rough-go, failing to generate any offense, just like the man he replaced, Geno Smith, while also taking big hits (vine above).
San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers is off to a great start for the AFC West-leading San Diego Chargers, while New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith’s struggles are causing fans to call for backup Michael Vick to replace the West Virginia graduate.
San Diego is attempting to extend their winning streak to four games, while the Jets are trying to avoid their longest losing streak in seven years.
