By the Numbers: Mike Williams and Keenan Allen Match Franchise Record for First Time Since '09



With 38 yards receiving yesterday, Mike Williams eclipsed the 1,000-yard receiving mark for the first time in his career. Williams joins Keenan Allen as the two Chargers players to compile over 1,000 yards receiving in the same season since 2009, when former Chargers Vincent Jackson and Antonio Gates accomplished the feat.


After finishing the 2019 season with 104 receptions, Allen broke the Chargers franchise record for catches in a single season. The previous record stood at 102, a feat accomplished by the wideout in 2017.


After his nine receptions in Sunday's game, Austin Ekeler reached 90 catches on the season, joining Allen as the first Chargers duo to each have at least 90 catches in the same season. Ekeler finished the year with 92 catches, which is the second-most catches by a Chargers running back in a single season in franchise history. Additionally, Ekeler more than doubled his previous career high in catches this season while falling seven yards short of reaching 1,000 yards receiving.


With Melvin Gordon's five-yard touchdown run against the Chiefs on Sunday, the running back passed former Chargers RB Paul Lowe (6,017) for sole possession of second place in team annals for scrimmage yards by a running back in franchise history. Gordon's career total now stands at 6,113 total yards.


In the fourth quarter of yesterday's game, Hunter Henry's fifth touchdown of the season was the 17th of his career, which ranks sixth-most among tight ends in franchise history. Despite missing four games this year, Henry also finished the year with a career high 652 receiving yards.


Defensive end Joey Bosa set multiple career bests during the 2019 season. His 31 quarterback hits are the most in his career, while the 24-year-old also set a career high in tackles for loss in a single season with 18.
