NFL: San Diego 34, Pittsburgh 24

Dec. 9, 2012 at 5:31 PM   |   Comments

PITTSBURGH, Dec. 9 (UPI) -- Philip Rivers fired three touchdown passes Sunday and the San Diego Chargers broke a four-game losing streak with a 34-24 victory over Pittsburgh.

Rivers connected on 21-of-41 passes for 200 yards, with seven completions going to Danario Alexander for 88 yards and a pair of scores.

The Chargers notched their first-ever regular-season win over Pittsburgh despite the return of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who sat out the previous three games with a sprained right shoulder and a rib injury.

Roethlisberger responded by going 22-of-42 through the air for 285 yards, three scores and an interception for the Steelers (7-6).

Mike Wallace led Pittsburgh's receivers with seven catches for 112 yards and two touchdowns.
