Philip Rivers: beating Colts was turning point for Bolts

Chargers now focused on winless Jacksonville

SAN DIEGO - If the San Diego Chargers beat winless Jacksonville on Sunday, they'll be above .500 for the first time this season.

That's a big deal for a team that looked so dismal in a loss at Oakland before using a methodical, balanced offense to beat Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts 19-9 Monday night.

Now the Chargers (3-3) will try to win consecutive games for the first time this season.

Says quarterback Philip Rivers: "I thought this was a turning point for our season."

The Chargers weren't saddled with the turnovers and other mistakes they made at Oakland. But they did have to settle for four field goals from Nick Novak despite several long, time-consuming drives led by Rivers.
