SAN DIEGO (AP) — Antonio Gates became the seventh tight end in NFL history with 500 catches, including touchdown receptions of 33 and 26 yards from Philip Rivers, to lead the San Diego Chargers to a 41-10 win over the outmanned Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

It was a big day all around for San Diego (2-2). Rookie running back Ryan Mathews scored his first NFL touchdown on a 15-yard run late in the third quarter. Fullback Mike Tolbert ran 16 times for 100 yards - his first 100-yard game in three seasons - and one score. Gates had seven catches for 144 yards.

The defense came up huge with nine sacks and three takeaways to drop Arizona to 2-2. Linebacker Shaun Phillips had a career-high four sacks and also returned an interception of Derek Anderson 31 yards for a TD late in the second quarter.
