Although the Chargers’ 5-9 season has been a disappointment, Antonio Gates has given the city of San Diego something to look forward to in the final two games. The eight-time Pro Bowler needs only one touchdown to surpass Lance Alworth’s franchise record of 81 career touchdowns – Alworth was a Hall of Fame wide receiver for the Chargers from 1962-1970.
Tying the record last week with a 7-yard touchdown catch against the Carolina Panthers, Gates was wired for sound during the week 15 matchup. Be sure to watch all that and more on “Inside the NFL”, which premieres tonight at 9 p.m. ET only on Showtime. Now, here’s a look back at a feature on Alworth’s career.
