No Antonio Gates, no Ryan Mathews. No problem for the San Diego Chargers, who routed the Tennessee Titans, 38-10, on Sunday to improve to 2-0. With the All-Pro tight end nursing a rib injury and the speedy running back still sidelined after breaking his collarbone this summer, the Chargers received huge contributions from Dante Rosario, who had three touchdown receptions, and Jackie Battle, who rushed for 69 yards and two touchdowns in 14 carries....

Considering how last season ended for Denver - losing at home in the divisional round to eventual champion Baltimore; a game the Broncos had all but won - this season has been Super Bowl or bust for Peyton Manning & Co. from the start. San Diego is a scary opponent, though. The Chargers had to win their final four games of the season for a flicker of hope to make the playoffs, and everything broke their way. Counting last weekend's win at Cincinnati, the Chargers essentially have won five consecutive do-or-die "playoff" games.

Oakland pulled the trigger, San Diego didn't. As the AFC West rivals open their season at the Oakland Coliseum in the second game of a Monday night opening-week doubleheader, classifying those coaching personnel decisions as prudent or panicked and patient or stagnant requires a closer look. Baltimore plays host to Cincinnati in the Monday opener. After losing four of their final five games, the Raiders fired Hue Jackson and replaced him with former Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Dennis Allen.

Time really is money. Nobody knows that better than Elvis Dumervil and the Denver Broncos. Dumervil found himself out of a job and the Broncos were without their best defensive end Friday afternoon after they reached an agreement on a new contract but saw it all come undone when tardy filing of the paperwork forced Denver to release him. A person familiar with the negotiations gave the Associated Press details about the confusion. The person did not want to be identified because the negotiations were not public.

Just hours after the close of the Olympics, a female shotputter from Belarus was stripped of her gold Monday in the first case of an athlete losing a medal for doping at the London Games. With the disqualification of Nadzeya Ostapchuk, the gold medal was awarded to Valerie Adams of New Zealand - who winds up as Olympic champion for the second time in a row. The International Olympic Committee said Ostapchuk, a former world champion, tested positive for steroids before and after winning the shotput last week for her first Olympic gold.

It's about the quarterbacks. It's always about the quarterbacks when the San Diego Chargers and Indianapolis Colts meet, a showdown between Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning, two of the best passers in the game. But tonight's matchup might be as much about the SUVs as the MVPs, the grind-it-out runners who help control the clock and keep the opposing quarterbacks off the field. In that case, the Chargers are on solid ground, even with rookie running back Ryan Mathews sidelined because of a bum ankle.

Denver (2-3) at San Diego (3-2) Time: 5:30. TV: ESPN. Story line: San Diego would like to take a two-game AFC West lead (and 3-0 division record) into its bye next week while the Broncos will work to claim a share of the lead through a grueling opening schedule. Chargers QB Philip Rivers is 9-3 against Denver. The Chargers have been tough on Peyton Manning, twice eliminating him from the playoffs as a Colt, ending an unbeaten season another time, and recording six- and four-interception games.

The Kansas City Chiefs are displaying a defending champion's resilience. The San Diego Chargers are being labeled as weak-minded, lacking intestinal fortitude and — yes — soft. Sure, the Chargers are 4-2 and possess a one-game lead over the Chiefs (3-3) in the AFC West, but as quarterback Philip Rivers leads his team into always-tough Arrowhead Stadium for a Monday night game, rallying Kansas City is ready to push back. The change in momentum actually started Sept.

Stevenson Sylvester stuffed Connor Dietz on a fourth-down quarterback keeper to preserve No. 19 Utah's 23-16 overtime victory over visiting Air Force on Saturday. Dietz rolled on the ground in misery as the Utah players flooded the field from the sideline to celebrate the Utes' fourth straight win as they improved to 7-1 overall and 4-0 in the Mountain West Conference. Air Force fell to 4-5, 3-3. In other Mountain West games: Ryan Lindley threw a career-best six touchdown passes and DeMarco Sampson hauled in 15 catches for 257 yards, helping San Diego State (3-4, 1-2)
