Chargers Vs. Jaguars Score: Mike Tolbert's TD Has Bolts Up Early

The Jacksonville Jaguars are dealing with a devastating number of injuries to their secondary and it showed on the San Diego Chargers' first draw, as the Bolts marched down the field to take a 7-0 lead in the first quarter. Philip Rivers looked solid on the drive, but he got a little bit of help. Antonio Gates made a spectacular catch to get the drive off to a great start, bailing out Rivers, who threw into double coverage.

Mike Tolbert finished off the drive for the Chargers with a 13-yard touchdown run. It was Tolbert's only run on the 11-play, 70-yard touchdown drive. Ryan Mathews carried the ball four times for 31 yards.

Jacksonville had the first possession and had to punt after Maurice Jones-Drew was stuffed on 3rd and 2, mostly thanks to a terrible play call. It's going to take some seriously awful (and characteristic) fail from Rivers and Norv Turner to alter this game's current course.

And, uh, here's a GIF of Mike Tolbert doing ... something.
