Preseason Week 2 - Chargers 20 - Cowboys 7
Rivers outduels Romo as Bolts upstage Cowboys
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Tony Romo was sharp. Philip Rivers was sharper. And the most accurate guy of all was San Diego coach Norv Turner.
Rivers led San Diego to scores on two of his three drives, then Turner helped his club score another touchdown with two successful challenges on a single series in the Chargers' 20-7 preseason victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.
Rivers got better as he went along -- from a three-and-out to a field goal on a drive that fizzled at the 7-yard line to going 5-for-5 passing on a 61-yard drive that ended with a 7-yard touchdown pass to Randy McMichael. Rivers finished 8 of 11 for 92 yards.
Billy Volek took over on San Diego's next series and the Chargers (1-1) went 81 yards for another touchdown. Turner kept the drive going by getting an interception erased by video review -- the right heel of Cowboys safety Gerald Sensabaugh narrowly landed on the sideline -- and by getting a 15-yard touchdown run for Ryan Mathews on a play initially declared out of bounds inside the 1.
