Philip Rivers threw four touchdown passes, two to Antonio Gates, and the San Diego Chargers beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 31-25 and ended a six-game losing streak Sunday.

Rivers passed Joe Montana (273) and tied Vinny Testaverde (275) for 11th on the NFL's all-time TD pass list.

Rivers completed 29 of 43 passes for 300 yards. He was sacked twice and had his left ankle checked in the locker room at halftime. But his four TD passes were enough against the Jaguars (4-7), who failed to recover an onside kick in the closing minutes.

Jacksonville had more red-zone troubles, scoring just once in four trips inside the 20-yard line.

The Chargers (3-8), meanwhile, found the end zone on all three red-zone possessions in the first half.
