SAN DIEGO -- Chris Chambers may have been benched, but he is still finding a way to help his team.

On third down and 10 from their own 8, the Chargers called Chambers’ number and he made a beautiful catch for a first down. He made the play over Oakland star cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.

The big play sparked San Diego which marched down for a field goal. San Diego now leads Oakland, 24-16, with about four minutes to go.

Chambers was benched this week in favor of Malcolm Floyd.
