All those defensive injuries finally caught up the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Jaguars played without five defensive starters and several key backups Monday night against San Diego, and it showed in a 38-14 loss. The Jaguars (3-9) were torched in the secondary, gouged on the ground and essentially out of the game by halftime.
It could get worse, too.
Jacksonville placed defensive end John Chick on injured reserve Tuesday, the team's 21st player deemed out for the season. Given injuries to fellow defensive ends Aaron Kampman (hamstring) and Matt Roth (concussion), it was no surprise the Jaguars failed to put much pressure on Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers.
Rivers completed 22 of 28 passes for 294 yards and three touchdowns. He picked apart Jacksonville's secondary, which played without its top three cornerbacks.

What I Liked:
The Chargers looked like the playoff team we remember from years past. Philip Rivers was able to sit in the pocket and find open receivers. The Chargers were also able to run the ball very effectively. Their line opened up gaping holes in the middle of the Jaguars' defense as well as on the outside. Really, the Chargers' offense looked about as sharp as their...
