Chargers hold on to beat Rams

San Diego, CA ( – Marcus Gilchrist intercepted a Shaun Hill
pass just inside the end zone as the San Diego Chargers held on for a 27-24
victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.

The Rams were in position to attempt a tying field goal after Hill completed a
27-yard pass to Kenny Britt at the San Diego 6-yard line with a little over a
minute remaining in the game.

Hill looked Britt’s way again after a short Benny Cunningham run, but
Gilchrist picked off the throw.

Philip Rivers was 29-of-35 for 291 yards, one touchdown and one interception
for the Chargers (7-4), who earned their second straight win following a
three-game skid.

Hill finished 18-of-35 for 198 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions for
St. Louis (4-7), which was coming off a surprising 22-7 home win over Denver
last week.
