SAN DIEGO (Ticker) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars visit Qualcomm Stadium for the first time in their history when they meet the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.

The only other meeting between the teams came last October with the Jaguars posting a 27-21 victory behind Byron Leftwich , who threw for 336 yards and two touchdowns. Jimmy Smith had eight catches for 137 yards.

After winning its first three games, Jacksonville makes the trek to the West Coast coming off its first loss of the season, a 24-17 defeat to the Indianapolis Colts . Leftwich had his best game of the season, passing for 318 yards with a touchdown and interception. He had failed to throw for 150 yards in any of his first three contests.

Facing a team from the AFC South Division for the second straight week, the Chargers are coming off their most impressive game of the season, a 38-17 rout of the Tennessee Titans . Drew Brees passed for three touchdowns and LaDainian Tomlinson rushed for 147 yards and a score in the Chargers' most lopsided win since the 2002 season.

Tomlinson has rushed for 415 yards to rank second in the AFC behind Curtis Martin . He will go up against a defense that has allowed just one 100-yard rusher over its last 19 games.

Matchup to watch: Chargers tight end Antonio Gates matches up against strong safety Donovin Darius .

Series: Jacksonville leads, 1-0

Next week: Jacksonville hosts Kansas City, October 17 San Diego visits Atlanta, October 17
