Chatman took over for an injured
and ran for 103 yards and a touchdown as San Diego opened up a 20-point lead by the end of the third. It was the first game this year for Jacksonville that was decided by more than seven points.
The Chargers recorded what was the most rushing yards vs. the Jaguars since 2002 when Pittsburgh gained 219 in a 25-23 win.
