San Diego, CA (.com) - Philip Rivers got the better of Eli Manning once again, tossing three touchdown passes to lead the San Diego Chargers to a much-needed 37-14 victory over Manning's New York Giants at Qualcomm Stadium.

Rivers completed a crisp 21-of-28 attempts for 249 yards without an interception in the one-sided win, which kept San Diego (6-7) a game back of Baltimore and Miami in the race for the final wild card spot in the AFC. Keenan Allen was on the receiving end of two of Rivers' scoring strikes, while Ryan Mathews ran for a touchdown while compiling 103 yards on 29 carries.

Manning, traded for Rivers on the day of the 2004 NFL Draft after originally being chosen by San Diego with the No. 1 overall pick, was intercepted twice while managing 259 yards and a touchdown on 20-of-32 passing against the team he balked at playing for while still a college prospect.

The Chargers have now won all three meetings between the clubs since both quarterbacks entered the league.

Hakeem Nicks amassed 135 yards on five catches for New York (5-8), which was officially elminated from playoff consideration with the setback.
