In today’s 27-17 victory over the New York Jets the Chargers history books gained some new marks. In turn a lot of game balls were distributed after the game. Coach Turner passed out a game ball to each player – Kendal Reyes, Corey Liuget, Jarret Johnson, Antonio Garay, Donald Butler, Shaun Phillips, Larry English, Brandon Taylor, Melvin Ingram – who amassed one or more of the 11 total sacks by the Chargers defense, marking a new single game record. The old single game record was 9 sacks in 2010.
The other game ball goes without saying as Antonio Gates scored the 82nd touchdown of his career, surpassing Chargers great Lance Alworth to make him the Chargers all time touchdown reception leader.
