Drew Brees threw for 339 yards and a season-high four touchdowns, including one to Antonio Gates, as San Diego rolled to its third straight win.

Gates, a star tight end who causes headaches for defensive coordinators, hurt his right foot at the end of a 21-yard reception midway through the third quarter when he was tripped up by Angelo Crowell.

Brees completed his first nine passes and threw for 265 yards to help the Chargers take a 35-10 halftime lead. Overall he completed 28 of 33 passes as the Chargers improved to 6-4. Buffalo is winless in five road games.

The Chargers had touchdowns on five of their seven first-half possessions.

LaDainian Tomlinson scored on a one-yard dive over the pile on fourth down on the game's opening drive, and it was all Brees after that.
