San Diego, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The San Diego Chargers didn't allow Andrew Luck the opportunity for another fourth-quarter comeback.

Their offense played keep away.

Nick Novak's fourth field goal of the game, a 50-yarder with 1:55 remaining, helped seal the outcome in the Chargers' 19-9 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

Of San Diego's five scoring drives, four had double-digit plays, including a 17 and 15-play trek.

Third-round rookie Keenan Allen had a career-high nine receptions for 107 yards and a touchdown for the Chargers (3-3), who controlled the time of possession battle, 38:31-21:29.

Philip Rivers was 22-of-33 for 237 yards and a touchdown in the triumph.

San Diego, which came in with the NFL's 21st (91.2 YPG) ranked rush attack, totaled 147 yards on the ground. Ryan Mathews had 102 yards on 22 carries.

Luck completed 18-of-30 passes for 202 yards with an interception for Indianapolis (4-2), which welcomes Peyton Manning back to town Sunday night as the Colts host the Denver Broncos.

Reggie Wayne became the ninth NFL receiver to tally 1,000 career receptions in defeat. He caught five passes for 88 yards.
