    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The San Diego Chargers' vaunted defense finally got a challenge. Philip Rivers and LaDainian Tomlinson couldn't say the same.

    Tomlinson set a franchise scoring record with a career-best four touchdowns rushing, and Rivers passed for a career-high 334 yards and two more scores in the Chargers' 48-19 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

    Antonio Gates and Vincent Jackson caught scoring passes from Rivers, who was practically perfect as the Chargers rolled to their first 4-1 start since 2002. Rivers went 29-of-39 with a poise beyond his five career starts, easily picking apart an injury-riddled secondary on a defense that already has allowed 194 points this season.

    Tomlinson rushed for just 71 yards, but surpassed Lance Alworth's Chargers record with his 84th career touchdown in the first quarter. He added three more on similarly short runs, each punctuated with a ball flip and a wave.

    The three-time Pro Bowl running back scored four TDs on three runs and a reception against the Jets last season, but had never rushed for four scores in a game.

    San Diego scored 35 first-half points against the 49ers (2-4) before finishing the club's highest-scoring performance since 1986, matching a 48-point game against Buffalo last season.
