Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers set the NFL record for most consecutive completions to start a game.
Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers set an NFL record for most consecutive completions to start a game during Los Angeles' 45-10 win over the Cardinals on Sunday.
Rivers connected on each of his first 25 pass atttempts, breaking the single-game consecutive completions record to start a game previously set by Mark Brunell, who completed 22 straight passes in 2006. He also tied Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's record of 25 straight completions at any point in a game.
Rivers finished 28-of-29 for 259 yards and three touchdowns.
The seven-time Pro Bowler is in the midst of what's been one of his most accurate seasons to date. He entered Sunday having completed 67% of his throws, which would mark his most accurate campaign since completing 69.5% of his attempts in 2013.
With the victory, the Chargers improved to 8-3 on the season. They will face the Steelers next week on Sunday Night Football, with kickoff scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.
