With Antonio Gates inactive because of sore ribs, the Chargers turned to Rosario. He responded with TD catches of 11, 4 and 15 yards from Philip Rivers. Rosario had just five career scoring catches coming in, including a game-winner against San Diego in the 2008 season opener while he was with the Carolina Panthers.
Rivers was 24-of-32 passing for 284 yards. Malcom Floyd had six catches for 109 yards, and Rosario finished with four catches for 48 yards.
