Chargers break their hex vs. Dolphins

After putting his right arm to good use, Philip Rivers proved he has some wheels, too.

Picking up on something he'd seen while watching film during the week, Rivers scored on a 5-yard scramble late in the third quarter Sunday to highlight a 23-13 victory over the winless Miami Dolphins, who lost quarterback Chad Pennington to a shoulder injury early in the second half.

It was just the second rushing touchdown in Rivers' career.

"I'm not used to scoring on the run," said Rivers, who threw for 303 yards a week after setting his career high with 436 yards in a loss against the Baltimore Ravens. He didn't throw a touchdown pass or an interception.
