And Ryan Mathews needs 57 yards rushing to reach 1,000 yards in his second NFL season.
At halftime of Sunday’s game, the Chargers will announce their Community Quarterback of the Year winner and present him or her with a $5,000 check for their program. The Community Quarterback program recognizes outstanding volunteers who exemplify leadership, dedication and a commitment to improving the youth football and cheer experience for youth in their community. The team also will honor all of the High School Coach of the Week winners as well as the Coach of the Year.
In addition, the Toyota End Zone Challenge will take place at halftime. It’s the culmination of an eight-week on-line promotion from which four contestants were chosen randomly to throw footballs from the 10-yard line into the bed of a 2012 Toyota Tacoma parked in the end zone. Each contestant will have 20 seconds to throw as many Nerf footballs as they can. The winner receives a two-year lease on the Tacoma.
