By the Numbers: Philip Rivers Moves Past Eli, Big Ben to No. 6 in Yards Passing

Philip Rivers Pass

Notable numbers from the Chargers’ Week 7 game against the Tennessee Titans:

56,770

Quarterback Philip Rivers leaped fellow 2004 draftees Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger in all-time yards passing with 56,770, moving to sixth on the list. Rivers passed for 329 yards and two touchdowns in Nashville.

115

Running back Austin Ekeler passed Mike Tolbert (2008-2011) and Paul Lowe (1960-1968) for the second-most receptions by an undrafted running back in Bolts history with 115. Danny Woodhead looms 52 receptions ahead on the list with 167. Ekeler also established a career high with 118 yards receiving and caught a 41-yard touchdown pass from Rivers.

100

Philip Rivers posted a 108.3 passer rating Sunday, becoming the fifth player in NFL history to record 100 games with a passer rating of at least 100. Tom Brady and Drew Brees are the only active quarterbacks with more career 100+ passer rating games.

99

Tight end Hunter Henry had another strong game in his second game back from injury, posting 97 yards receiving on six catches. The 6-5 Arkansas product now has 99 receptions in his NFL career.

50

Rookie kicker Chase McLaughlin made a career-long 50-yard field goal against Tennessee. This season, he is 5-for-7 in field goals and has converted all five extra points he's attempted.

5

Second-year linebacker Uchenna Nwosu set a career high with five solo tackles against the Titans. He also deflected a pass just before hitting Ryan Tannehill that resulted in an interception.

3.3

The Chargers defensive line was stingy Sunday, limiting the Derrick Henry-led Titans to 3.3 yards per carry. This unit held the Steelers to 3.4 yards per carry in Week 6.

2

Defensive end Joey Bosa sacked Tannehill twice Sunday, with each coming on the same third-quarter drive. Tannehill is now the 21st quarterback Bosa has sacked in the NFL. In the game, Bosa also forced a fumble and stuffed the Titans quarterback on a key fourth-and-inches play to allow the Bolts to regain possession in the fourth quarter.

1

Rookie safety Roderic Teamer recorded his first NFL interception in Nashville Sunday. The 22-year-old out of Tulane was also credited with six tackles and a pass deflection in the contest.
