Week 2: By the Numbers


Notable numbers from the Chargers' Week 2 game against the Detroit Lions:


Quarterback Philip Rivers threw for 293 yards in Detroit, falling seven yards shy of passing Hall of Famer Dan Marino for sole possession of fourth place in career 300-plus passing yard games. He'll get his next opportunity to surpass Marino Sunday at home against the Texans.


Rivers started his 210th consecutive game, tying Eli Manning for the second-most among QBs all-time and tied for the sixth-most consecutive starts among NFL players since 1970.


Running back Austin Ekeler tallied 133 total yards at Detroit, including 66 yards rushing and 67 yards receiving, moving into fourth in Chargers history in receiving yards by an undrafted running back.


The Chargers limited the Lions to 94 yards rushing on 28 carries, a stingy 3.4 yards per carry, after allowing 203 yards on 33 carries (6.2 yards per carry) to the Colts in Week 1.


Wide receiver Mike Williams, who was listed as questionable coming into Sunday's game, recorded 83 yards receiving on three receptions, including a diving 47-yard grab at the end of the first half that set up a Ty Long field goal.


Linebacker Thomas Davis, a 36-year-old in his 15th NFL season and first with the Chargers, leads the league with 26 tackles after two games.


Cornerback Casey Hayward's end zone interception was his 12th pick since 2016, the fourth-most in the NFL during that span. The pick marked Hayward's second career interception of Matthew Stafford, giving him multiple picks against six total QBs, also including Blake Bortles, Jay Cutler, Andrew Luck, Nathan Peterman and Trevor Siemian.


Rayshawn Jenkins, a third-year safety from the University of Miami, picked off Matthew Stafford in the third quarter for his first career NFL interception.
