SAN DIEGO -- Philip Rivers, with a nice bit of defence thrown in, ensured the San Diego Chargers didnt blow another fourth-quarter lead. Joseph Noteboom Jersey . Rivers threw for 401 yards and three touchdowns, including a 56-yarder to Antonio Gates that helped the Chargers beat the Dallas Cowboys 30-21 Sunday. The Chargers (2-2) blew late leads in their two losses. On Sunday, they scored the final 20 points to beat Dallas (2-2). Running a no-huddle, no-hurry offence under new coach Mike McCoy, Rivers gets to the line of scrimmage with roughly 20 seconds left on the play clock, enough time to read the defence and check into a different play, if necessary. Its a luxury he didnt have in Norv Turners offence. "I feel in sync. I have a rhythm and Im comfortable in the pocket when we get that no-huddle going," Rivers said. "Its big being 2-2 instead of 1-3. I know weve been there before but its tough to dig yourself out of 1-3, especially when youre playing with young guys and guys you didnt expect to be in there. They can gain confidence off games like this." Rivers completed 35 of 42 passes, his final TD pass, to Gates, being the 200th of his career. He threw two TD passes to running back Danny Woodhead. After having three 400-yard games in his previous nine seasons, Rivers has two in this years four games. Rivers 83.3 per cent completion rate was the highest in NFL history for a 400-yard passing game. The previous mark was 81.8 per cent (36 of 44) by San Franciscos Jeff Garcia against Chicago on Dec. 17, 2000. After 35 interceptions the past two seasons, Rivers has been picked off only twice so far while throwing 11 touchdown passes. "It was really what he did throughout the ballgame," Dallas coach Jason Garrett said. "He did a fantastic job. He really controlled the football and controlled the game. He did an outstanding job getting them into the right play over and over again. "He threw the ball as well as hes thrown in a long, long time." Rivers biggest pass wasnt necessarily his prettiest. He short-armed one over the middle to Gates, who slid behind linebacker Sean Lee to haul it in and score with 6:54 to go. Lee had intercepted Rivers on a deflected pass and returned it 52 yards for a 21-10 lead late in the second quarter. Dallas didnt score again. "We were able to get some looks we thought we could take advantage of," said Gates, who had 10 catches for 136 yards. "The way he threw that ball, he put it in the right place and I was able to make the play." San Diegos defence came up with a big stop in the final moments. Tony Romo moved the Cowboys to the San Diego 7, where he hit Terrance Williams at the 1. Williams was stretching for the end zone when he was hit by Crezdon Butler and fumbled. San Diegos Richard Marshall recovered for a touchback. A week earlier, Butler was burned on a 34-yard touchdown pass from Jake Locker to Justin Hunter with 15 seconds to play to give Tennessee a 20-17 victory. Butler was in against the Cowboys because Derek Cox left with a knee injury. "I saw that the ball was a little loose. We learn as a kid you can put a hit on the ball and it comes out," Butler said. "I had no idea he lost it. Then I rolled over and I saw Marshall had it. "Last week was tough and I had to move on from that," Butler added. "Being a defensive back you have a short-term memory. Im glad I made that play today." It was only the second takeaway of the season for San Diego. San Diego trailed 21-10 when Nick Novak started the comeback with a 42-yard field goal as the first-half clock expired. The Chargers took the opening kickoff of the second half and Rivers moved them 80 yards, capping the drive with a 13-yard pass to Woodhead to pull to 21-20. The way Rivers ran the offence, the Cowboys didnt have a chance to come back. They ran only seven offensive plays in the third quarter. "Thats what we see every day," Woodhead said of Rivers. "He was great, but hes always great." After forcing Dallas to punt, San Diego took a 23-21 lead on Novaks 23-yard field goal that capped a drive starting from the Chargers 11. Romo threw touchdown passes of 5 and 34 yards to Dez Bryant in the second quarter, when Dallas scored 21 points. Lee got his interception return for a TD when Rivers was hit by tackle Jason Hatcher as he released the ball. NOTES: Chargers LB Manti Teo made his NFL debut.

You can also listen to the game live on TSN 690 Montreal at 7pm et/4pm pt. The Habs have lost four of their past six games and opened up a six-game swing with Thursdays 5-1 setback to the St. Louis Blues. Briere returns after sitting out Thursdays loss as a healthy scratch. Brendan Gallagher scored his first goal in 12 games, giving him 10 on the season, and Carey Price allowed five scores on 29 shots faced. The setback marked the fifth time in Montreals past six games it has scored one goal or fewer. "Were making simple mistakes that we shouldnt be making," said Montreal winger Brian Gionta. "Were not supporting each other. Were not backing each other up and ... thats just not the way we need to be playing." Montreals offense also failed to come through in an earlier meeting with Nashville, which picked up a 2-1 road victory back on Oct. 19. Gallagher had the lone goal on that day and the Habs wasted Prices 35 saves. Price remained winless in his career versus the Predators despite the solid outing, falling to 0-3-0 with a 2. Rams Stitched Jerseys. 35 goals against average in three meetings. Nashville, which got goals from defensemen Seth Jones and Shea Weber, is 3-0-1 in its past four versus Montreal and 3-1-2 with a tie all-time against the franchise at home. The Preds will try to bounce back from their seventh loss in 10 games, a 4-2 setback at the hands of the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday. Craig Smith scored twice for Nashville, with each tally making it a one-goal game, but Tampa Bay responded with a goal shortly after both times. "They took some momentum away by scoring just after we did," Smith said. "They are a good team, but so are we. They can do some good things and so can we. They came out on top tonight and converted their chances." Carter Hutton allowed four goals on just 14 shots before he was pulled in favor of Marek Mazanec in the second period. Mazanec made 19 saves in the setback. Neither Hutton or Mazanec have ever faced the Canadiens. Injured goaltender Pekka Rinne made 28 saves in the first meeting of the season.
