    A simple flick of the ball from LT said it all.

    Four turnovers helped the San Diego Chargers (8-3) turn in their 6th straight victory on Sunday blowing out the Kansas City Chiefs 43-14.

    Tight end Antonio Gates and running back LaDainian Tomlinson both scored a pair of touchdowns and kicker Nate Kaeding hit a field goal from 55-yards out, his longest ever at Qualcomm Stadium.  LT also moved into 10th on the NFL's all-time rushing list.

    The defense recovered three fumbles and intercepted a pass in the game. Safety Paul Oliver returned a fumble 40-yards for a score and the defense came up with a safety in the fourth quarter.

    Chargers defenders Shawne Merriman and Eric Weddle left Sunday's game with injuries. Weddle left with a knee injury and Merriman had a foot injury.

    The Chiefs (3-8) lost a week after stunning the defending Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime.

    The Chargers maintain their one game lead over the Denver Broncos in the AFC West and play the Browns in Cleveland next week.
