Philip Rivers threw for 307 yards and one touchdown, Mike Tolbert ran for another score and the San Diego Chargers knocked out Miami quarterback Chad Henne on the way to beating the winless Dolphins 26-16 on Sunday. Henne hurt his left shoulder at the end of a run on a broken play on the Dolphins' second possession and didn't return. Although backup Matt Moore led the Dolphins to the game's first TD, Rivers' passing eventually overpowered the Dolphins (0-4). Rivers threw a 55-yard touchdown pass to Vincent Jackson to tie the game at 7 late in the first quarter. Ryan Mathews' 48-yard gain on a screen pass set up Tolbert's 1-yard leap over the pile for a 20-10 lead for the Chargers (3-1) early in the third quarter.
