From May 30 and every day until September 5… the start of the 2013 NFL season… Sports Stats ‘on Tapp’ will publish “99 Stats Until Kickoff” a daily dose of NFL stats that will get you ready for the 2013 NFL season.)
San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers on September 30 at Kansas City, reached a couple of milestones in his career.
First, Rivers became the 63rd QB in NFL history to amass 25,000 or more yards passing. Since he accumulated those 25,000-plus yards with only the Chargers, Rivers also became the 37th QB in NFL history to pass for 25,000 or more yards with one franchise.
In addition, Rivers became the third Charger QB to reach the 25,000-yards passing milestone with the club, joining Dan Fouts and John Hadl. The trio of Rivers, Fouts and Hadl make the Chargers only the third franchise in the league to have three QBs reach the 25,000-mark in passing yards with their franchise (joining the Patriots and 49ers).
