Chargers Vs. Jaguars Score: Philip Rivers Closes Out Strong Half, San Diego Leads 24-14

Philip Rivers injected some offense and excitement into Monday Night Football, throwing for two touchdowns in just more than a minute to end the first half against the Jaguars. The two scores gave the Chargers a 24-14 lead heading into the locker room.

So far, Rivers has thrown for two touchdowns and more than 200 yards while completing better than 75 percent of his passes. In other words: He's been the *good* Philip Rivers from previous seasons.

Rivers put the Chargers on top with a 22-yard strike to Vincent Brown. Here's the video of that first touchdown pass:


Then, after a Blaine Gabbert interception, Rivers extended the Chargers lead before the half, finding another Vincent -- Vincent Jackson -- for a 35-yard score. Here's video of that touchdown:


On the other side of the ball, Maurice Jones-Drew is having a strong night for the Jags, collecting almost 100 total yards in the first half. Jones-Drew scored a rushing touchdown and set up another Jacksonville score with a 48-yard gain on a shovel pass. Yup, we have that video, too:
