    NFL 1979, Week 9: San Diego 31, Oakland 26 

    On a nationally televised Thursday night game, San Diego and Oakland battled back and forth, trading the lead several times in the second half.  A Dan Fouts pass to Mike Thomas from 2 yards out with 2:54 left in regulation gave the Chargers the win, 31-26.

    Fouts also took MVP honors for the game.  He threw for 220 yards and 2 TD’s, but some clutch passing on that go ahead drive proved the difference in the game.

    San Diego is still undefeated at 9-0, while Oakland falls to 4-5.

    NFL 1979, Week 8: San Diego 31, Los Angeles 10 

    In a battle of Southern California teams, it was the Chargers breaking open a 10-10 halftime deadlock with three unanswered TDs for a decisive 31-10 road win against the Rams in Los Angeles.

    And if the Chargers win, its usually Dan Fouts taking the game MVP honors, and this game was no different.  In this game, Fouts threw 26 passes, completing 19 of them for 218 yards and a touchdown.

    The Chargers stay undefeated at 8-0, the Rams are now 2-6.

    NFL 1979, Week 7: San Diego 35, Seattle 23 

    Much like the Steelers earlier, the Chargers looked for a while as if they would be handed their first loss at the hands of Seattle.  Down 23-14 at one point in the third quarter, Dan Fouts rallied his troops to 21 straight points to capture the win, 35-23.

    Dan Fouts once again took the game MVP honors for the Chargers.  Throwing a minimum of passes early in the game to set up the run paid huge dividends later, as Fouts threw for 332 yards, completing 18 of 28 passes, three for TD’s.

    The Chargers go to 7-0, while Seattle falls to 4-3.

    What looked like would be a close game on paper turned into anything but close as the visiting San Diego Chargers beat up on Denver, 42-7.

    Artie Owens took player of the game honors, as he caught two touchdown passes, and ran in two more to account for four of San Diego’s six TD’s on the day.

    San Diego stays undefeated at 6-0, while the Broncos have now lost two straight to fall to 4-2.
