Vincent Brown soared above two Oakland Raiders defenders to snatch a touchdown pass. At least someone is making plays for the San Diego Chargers. The rookie, who as a boy pretended to be Jerry Rice, has gained nearly 20 yards per catch in two starts since replacing injured receiver Malcom Floyd. Brown's nine catches for 196 yards came against the Packers and Raiders, each a first-place team. Coach Norv Turner calls Brown ''exciting,'' and the Bolts will need him again because Floyd has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears due to a hip injury. The Chargers (4-5) are on a four-game losing streak, their longest since 2003.
