And they say History never repeats!

The last touchdown of the game was important in more ways than one. Back in 2009 the San Diego Chargers very own Phillip Rivers made his 100th TD against the Dallas Cowboys with Antonio Gates as the receiver. Now four years later, History has repeated its self! For Rivers’ 200th TD pass was made yet again against the Dallas Cowboys with Gates as the receiver. Not only was this the last TD of the game, it was also a league recorded!

This game has been filled with a lot of emotional ups and downs, nail biting plays from both sides as well. As nerve wrecking as this game was, I can honestly say that I enjoyed the outcome! With everyone betting against San Diego, this is a truly great feeling of victory!

    Welcome to the Bandwagon! Woot Woot!!! I love this post, not only are Rivers and Gates the most prolific QB – TE tandem in the NFL (and the record keeps growing!) but everyone had picked the Cowboys as the winner. Winning is so much sweeter when it’s not a given.

    Could there have been a better 200th touchdown pass than Gates going 56 yards to the house? Glad to see him playing at a high level after all the injuries and doubters. Same thing with Rivers. Still a long season ahead of us, let’s finish strong!
