Minnesota takes advantage of 7 Chargers turnovers in victory

CARSON, Calif, (AP) Mike Zimmer has accomplished many things as a defensive coordinator and head coach. He added one more Sunday in the Minnesota Vikings' 39-10 rout of the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Vikings forced seven Chargers' turnovers and converted them into 20 points. It is the most takeaways for a Zimmer-led unit, surpassing the six that Dallas forced against Washington in 2003.

"Obviously, the turnovers were big," Zimmer said. "We knew that they had minus in turnover margin, so it was important that we try to get some today."
