SAN DIEGO -- The Chargers are coming after the Broncos through the air.

The passing game has been San Diego’s bread and butter because of a weak running game -- the Chargers are ranked last in the NFL in rushing.

So far, so good for Air Turner. The Chargers’ took a 3-0 lead with 4:51 to go in the first quarter.

The Chargers converted four big pass plays on a drive that started at their 6-yard line.

San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers is s having a big year and the Chargers are clearly going to try to get back into the AFC West race on his arm.
