SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Diego Chargers' vaunted defense finally got a challenge. Philip Rivers and LaDainian Tomlinson couldn't say the same.

Tomlinson set a franchise scoring record with a career-best four touchdowns rushing, and Rivers passed for a career-high 334 yards and two more scores in the Chargers' 48-19 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

Antonio Gates and Vincent Jackson caught scoring passes from Rivers, who was practically perfect as the Chargers rolled to their first 4-1 start since 2002. Rivers went 29-of-39 with a poise beyond his five career starts, easily picking apart an injury-riddled secondary on a defense that already has allowed 194 points this season.
