Former Louisiana Ragin’ Cajun Ladarius Green caught a four yard touchdown pass and led the San Diego Chargers in receiving and receiving yardage as the sixth-seeded Chargers defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 27-10 at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati Sunday afternoon.

Green’s touchdown came on the Chargers first possession of the second half and Cincinnati leading, 10-7.  It capped a 10- play, 80 yard drive and gave San Diego the lead for good.  Green totaled three catches for 34 yards.

The San Diego running game took over after the touchdown, with the Chargers rushing for nearly 200 yards including a Ronnie Brown 58 yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that put the game away.

Cincinnati turned the ball over four times, twice on interceptions and twice on fumbles.  Quarterback Andy Dalton completed 29-51 for 334 yards and a touchdown.  But he was intercepted twice and lost a fumble. Marvin Jones caught eight passes for 130 yards in the loss.

San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers, meanwhile, completed 12-16 passes for 128 yards.

The win sets up a third meeting next Sunday against the Denver Broncos, who won both meetings during the regular season, 28-20 and 27-20.
