SAN DIEGO CHARGERS (4-1) at NEW YORK JETS (3-3) (Sunday, CBS, 1:00 PM ET)

With a bye in Week 6, the Chargers return to action on Sunday, focused on winning their fourth consecutive game.

San Diego sits in first place in the AFC West, but feels that its best football is still ahead.

"We know we have to improve," says Chargers quarterback PHILIP RIVERS. "We know we’re not where we need to be in order to accomplish the goals we set at the beginning of the year. But if we can improve while winning, then we can give ourselves a chance as we head toward the second half of the season."

The Jets improved to 3-0 at MetLife Stadium with a 24-6 win over the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football.

"This was key for us," says Jets cornerback DARRELLE REVIS, who registered a 100-yard interception-return touchdown against Miami.

This meeting will mark the first game for Jet running back LA DAINIAN TOMLINSON against his former team. Selected No. 5 overall by San Diego in the 2001 NFL Draft, Tomlinson garnered numerous accolades during his nine-year tenure (2001-09) in San Diego, including AP NFL MVP and Offensive Player of the Year honors in 2006. He is the Chargers’ all-time leader in career rushing yards (12,490) and total touchdowns (153).
