SAN DIEGO (Ticker) -- Even without LaDainian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates, the San Diego Chargers made short work of the Dallas Cowboys.

After spotting Dallas an early touchdown lead, San Diego scored 24 unanswered points en route to a 31-17 victory on Saturday.

The Chargers (1-0) scored four times on the ground, including two touchdowns by rookie fullback Jacob Hester. Darren Sproles and Mike Tolbert added touchdowns for San Diego, which seemed to be in midseason form.

The Chargers committed one penalty - late in the fourth quarter - while the Cowboys had seven for 96 yards, including two pass-interference calls in the first half that put San Diego inside the Dallas 5-yard line.

Philip Rivers completed 5-of-6 passes for 54 yards in four series, leading the Chargers to two scores.

Tony Romo was effective in his only drive for Dallas, completing 3-of-3 passes for 33 yards. Romo drove the Cowboys 54 yards on eight plays, culminating in a 2-yard rushing TD by Deon Anderson.
