Philip Rivers threw two touchdown passes to Malcom Floyd and the San Diego Chargers remained alive in the AFC West race with a 31-0 win Sunday over the division-leading Kansas City Chiefs, who went nowhere without quarterback Matt Cassel.

The four-time defending division champion Chargers (7-6) pulled within one game of the Chiefs (8-5). Cassel didn't travel after having an emergency appendectomy on Wednesday. His backup, Brodie Croyle, completed 7 of 17 passes for 40 yards and was sacked four times in his first start since the 2009 opener.

Rivers was 18 of 24 for 226 yards and the Chargers outgained the Chiefs 426 yards to 67. Kansas City had only five first downs.

It was San Diego's first regular-season shutout against the Chiefs.
