JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Philip Rivers threw for 294 yards and three touchdowns, burning Jacksonville's depleted secondary early and often, and San Diego beat the Jaguars, 38-14, on Monday night to snap a six-game losing streak. Rivers, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, leads the NFL in interceptions (17) and turnovers (21), and was a key part of San Diego's disappointing 5-7 season. But he was nearly perfect against Jacksonville (3-9), adding to the Chargers' tumultuous week.

Doug Flutie lost his job yesterday, perhaps ending the career of the charismatic little signal caller who played in three professional leagues. Flutie, 42, was released by San Diego, which would have had to pay him a roster bonus of $350,000 on Tuesday. Flutie was best-known for the "Hail Mary" pass against Miami that helped him win the 1984 Heisman Trophy with Boston College. He had two years left on his contract but was effectively fourth on the Chargers' depth chart behind Drew Brees, Philip Rivers and second-year man Cleo Lemon.

  Line: Jets by 21/2. The skinny: The Ravens are a hot choice to go far this year. They have bulked up their offense by bringing in receivers Anquan Boldin and T.J. Houshmandzadeh, joining versatile running back Ray Rice, dependable wideout Derrick Mason, and healthy-at-last tight end Todd Heap. Their defense always is formidable. Some observers would say the Jets are doing everything the right way, adding stars such as LaDainian Tomlinson, Jason Taylor, Santonio Holmes, and Antonio Cromartie to their lineup.

SAN DIEGO - Peyton Manning needed only one half to show why he still is one of the best quarterbacks in the game. This time, it was the second half, as the Denver Broncos became the first team in NFL history to trail by 24 or more points at halftime and win by double figures, downing the San Diego Chargers, 35-24. Manning, who threw a critical interception in the second quarter, finished 24-for-30 for 309 yards and three touchdowns. He was 6-for-6 on the Broncos' first possession after halftime, and hit Demaryius Thomas for Denver's first TD of the game at 10:56, throwing for 83 yards on the drive that made it 24-7.

Each week, Daily News football writer Paul Domowitch will tell you the things he will be keeping his eyes on during that week's game: 1. San Diego's redwoods: The Chargers have far and away the biggest wide-receiving corps in the league. Their top three wideouts all are at least 6-2 and 220. Two - Vincent Jackson and Malcolm Floyd - are 6-5. The Eagles' undersized secondary doesn't match up well against them. Philip Rivers is going to be throwing a lot of balls up for grabs for them to make plays on. 2. Protecting McNabb: The Eagles already have given up 21 sacks, which is one more than they allowed all of last season.

LaDainian Tomlinson is about to become the highest-paid running back in the NFL. Tomlinson said after yesterday's practice he has agreed in principle to a deal with the San Diego Chargers that will eclipse the 8-year, $50.5 million contract signed by the Redskins' Clinton Portis in the offseason. Asked if his deal will be worth more than that given Portis, Tomlinson replied, "Absolutely. I don't think it will even be close. " Few players have matched Tomlinson's 3 years in the NFL, a span in which he's rushed for 4,564 yards and 37 touchdowns.

In an odd switch, the quarterback cut by the Dallas Cowboys signed yesterday with the New York Jets. Quincy Carter, released by Dallas on Aug. 4, will back up Chad Pennington with the Jets. Pennington's backup last season was 40-year-old Vinny Testaverde, who was released by the Jets in June and became the Cowboys' starter when Carter was let go. Carter, who started every game for the Cowboys last season, was released suddenly in the first week of training camp. Chargers.

SAN DIEGO - Carson Palmer looked like an NFL quarterback again, not like a guy who had settled into semi-retirement in Southern California. Philip Rivers looked, well, like the turnover-prone quarterback that he's been since Opening Day. Palmer threw two touchdown passes and Michael Bush ran 30 times for a season-high 157 yards and one touchdown to lead the Oakland Raiders to a 24-17 win over San Diego last night, the Chargers' fourth straight loss. The Raiders (5-4)

DETROIT - After a decade of losing, the Detroit Lions are in the playoffs. And they made sure the San Diego Chargers are out. With their fans chanting "PLAYOFFS" for the final minutes, Detroit got there for the first time since 1999 as Matthew Stafford threw three touchdown passes in the first half to beat the Chargers, 38-10, on Saturday. The only team to lose all 16 games in a season (2008), the Lions (10-5) have won three straight after a 2-5 slump to earn a wild-card spot in the playoffs.

THE STRONGEST argument in favor of everything that you have witnessed over the last month came about 12 minutes into Howie Roseman's question and answer session on Thursday night. After spending much of the news conference extolling the blue-collar virtues of the man he selected with the No. 2 pick in the draft, the Eagles' football operations chief made an important point when he noted that a team that finds a long-term solution at quarterback does so for a very long term. "It's not a decision just for the moment," Roseman said after pointing out that a team that finds a long-term answer at quarterback can go through multiple cycles of building around that position.

NATE ALLEN had changed into street clothes before the interview began. There was no target on the back of his shirt. He is one of the Eagles' safeties, the most maligned position on the roster, and to say that he (and they) had just had a rough day was to offer no particular insight. Philip Rivers had just thrown for a tidy 419 yards against them, completing 36 of 47 throws. Tight end Antonio Gates caught eight passes for 124 yards and did what tight ends have done to this defense for far too long.

WHEN YOUR offense racks up 511 yards and you lose - while being outgained - you have a problem. When your quarterback throws for a career-high 428 yards and you lose, you have a problem. When your coach is questioned about what he can do at safety, and his response is to lament that there aren't any good ones out there to sign, you have a problem. The Eagles, you'll no doubt be shocked to read, have a problem. If Week 1 hinted at the best-case scenario for Chip Kelly's exciting, infuriating first Eagles team, yesterday showed us the worst-case scenario.

San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers comes into Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday with King Dunlap protecting his blind side from the left tackle position and a rookie holding down the edge on the right side. In between those two guys, the Chargers have a solid but aging center, and one guard who is a 320-pound converted tackle playing the position for the first time, and the other who is a journeyman now with his third organization in six seasons. Rivers, with a reputation for staying in the pocket and holding the ball to a fault, was sacked 49 times last season, second-most in the NFL. San Diego replaced three of its offensive line starters in the offseason, and if Dunlap represents an improvement, that gives you an idea how bad things were.

WE'LL CALL IT the Joe Flacco challenge. Instead of firing off a spiteful email that disputes everything you are about to read, I'd encourage you to make some money off of the shortsightedness of folks like myself and the Vegas oddsmakers who earlier this week made the 8-2 Ravens a 1 1/2-point underdog against the 4-6 Chargers in San Diego. Nothing says "I told you so" like lighting a cigar with a $100 bill while wearing a Flacco jersey. In the meantime, I'll detail the reason why I'm ranking the Ravens near the top of my pool picks for Week 12. In short, Flacco is not an elite NFL quarterback, and when you take a less-than-elite QB outside his comfort zone, he has a tendency to struggle.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 5 of the 2012 season.   Watch 'em roll Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals vs. Dolphins.

If you're looking for help with your real starting lineup conundrums, read on. Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 3 of the 2012 season.   Watch 'em roll Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals at Redskins. Washington's pass rush took a major hit last week with the loss of Brian Orakpo and Adam Carriker. Dalton should have plenty of time to pick apart the same secondary that Sam Bradford torched in Week 2. He also has the advantage of better receivers than the Rams.
