By the Numbers: Austin Ekeler Joins 100-100 Club on 12 Touches


100 & 100

Running back Austin Ekeler reached the 100-yard mark in rushing and receiving in Jacksonville, doing so on the fewest number of touches in NFL history (12). The next fewest touches to post a 100/100 game was 15, which running back Herschel Walker accomplished in 1986. In Sunday's game, Ekeler amassed 213 total yards and scored his 11th touchdown of the season.


Against the Jaguars, wide receiver Keenan Allen recorded his 500th career reception, passing former Bolts wideout Wes Chandler (1981-1987) for No. 6 on the team's all-time yards receiving list. Allen stands 29 receptions behind Hall of Fame running back LaDainian Tomlinson for fourth in franchise history in receptions. The next man for Allen to pass in yards receiving is tight end Kellen Winslow (1979-1987), who is 588 yards ahead of Allen.


On his 38th birthday, quarterback Philip Rivers posted a career-best 154.4 passer rating. The 16-year NFL veteran went 16-for-22 for 314 yards and three touchdowns, reaching 3,500 yards this season for a 12th-straight season. It was the 30th time in Rivers' career that his passer rating exceeded the 130 mark in a game, joining only three other quarterbacks in NFL annals to do so.


The Chargers scored a season-high 45 points Sunday, racking up season bests in total yards (525) and first downs (27). In the contest, L.A. outscored Jacksonville by 35 points, outgained the Jags by 273 yards and accumulated 12 more first downs.


Wide receiver Mike Williams picked up his league-leading eighth reception of at least 40 yards when he caught a 44-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter Sunday. It was Williams' first score of the season after finding the end zone 11 times last year.


Defensive end Joey Bosa posted his fourth multi-sack performance of the season by sacking Gardner Minshew twice. Bosa ranks eighth in the league in sacks with 10.5. On the day, the AFC's leader among defensive players in Pro Bowl voting also tallied three tackles for loss and three quarterback hits.


Fullback Derek Watt scored his first career NFL touchdown on a 1-yard run up the middle during the second quarter. The rushing score was Watts' first since high school, though he did notch a receiving touchdown at Wisconsin. He also recorded two special teams tackles Sunday to bring his NFL-leading total to 15 this season.


The Bolts did not turn the ball over in Jacksonville, the third time this season they did not commit a turnover in a game.
