Recap


Chargers 19, Colts 9: Philip Rivers threw for 237 yards and a touchdown and host San Diego used a string of clock-eating drives to snap Indianapolis' three-game winning streak.

Rookie Keenan Allen had a season-high nine receptions for 107 yards and a touchdown and Nick Novak kicked four field goals for the Chargers (3-3), who had four scoring drives of at least 11 plays. Ryan Mathews rushed for 102 yards on 22 carries as San Diego held the ball for 38 minutes, 31 seconds.

Andrew Luck finished 18-of-30 for 202 yards with one interception and Adam Vinatieri kicked three field goals, including a 50-yarder on the final play of the first half and a 51-yarder that cut the deficit to 16-9 with 7:21 remaining. Reggie Wayne had five catches for 88 yards but Trent Richardson was limited to 40 yards on 10 carries for the Colts (4-2).

The only touchdown came when Rivers capped a 12-play, 74-yard drive by finding a diving Allen in the back of the end zone in the first three minutes of the second quarter. The Chargers ate up nearly eight minutes on a subsequent 17-play drive before settling for Novak's 31-yard field goal, but Luck got the Colts in position for Vinatieri's 50-yarder kick as time expired in the half to cut it to 10-6.

San Diego put together two more lengthy scoring drives - including one of 9:13 - in the second half but had to settle for field goals of 33 and 34 yards by Novak for a 16-6 lead with 9:43 left. Indianapolis got within a touchdown on Vinatieri's 51-yarder, but Novak connected from 50 yards with 1:55 to play to extend the lead to 10 points.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Wayne became the ninth receiver in history to reach 1,000 receptions - he has 1,001 - and has caught a pass in his 118th consecutive game, the third-longest active streak in the league. ... Mathews, who was knocked out of last week's game with a concussion, had his first 100-yard game since Dec. 11, 2011. ... LB Jerrell Freeman left the game in the third quarter due to a concussion for the Colts, who matched their lowest point total in Luck's two seasons.
