NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Philip Rivers threw two touchdowns passes, LaDainian Tomlinson ran for two scores, and the San Diego Chargers beat the Tennessee Titans 42-17 on Friday night to grab the AFC's No. 2 seed and a first-round bye in the playoffs.
The AFC West champs streaked to their 10th straight win and tied the 1970-74 Miami Dolphins for most consecutive wins in a month with their 18th in December dating to 2006. The Dolphins won 18 in a row in November.
Darren Sproles caught a TD pass and ran for two more as San Diego (12-3) squashed the Titans' dreams of becoming the NFL's first team to start 0-6 and rebound to make the playoffs. Tennessee (7-8) had hoped to top what the 1994 Chargers did in reaching the postseason after an 0-4 start.
