Sunday, September 7, 2008. (AP) -- Jake Delhomme came back with a jolt that the San Diego Chargers won't soon forget.

Delhomme threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to tight end Dante Rosaraio as time expired to lift the Carolina Panthers to a shocking 26-24 win over the Chargers on Sunday.

It was a heart-stopping capper to a game that swung wildly with a big defensive play by each team in the second half.

After Philip Rivers rallied San Diego with his third TD pass of the game, Delhomme moved the Panthers to the San Diego 14-yard line with 2 seconds left before calling his final timeout.
