With last night’s 42-17 win over the Titans, the San Diego Chargers have matched a feat that has been accomplished by only one other NFL franchise since 1970.
The Chargers have now won 18 games in a row in a single month.
Only the Dolphins have previously achieved such a mark, winning 18 straight from 1970 through 1974.
But since next weekend’s game against the Seahawks will be played in January, they’ll have to wait until December 2010 for a chance to break the record.
We wonder whether Mercury Morris will have anything to say about it come Thanksgiving. Given the Colts’ success this year, it might be the only record the Dolphins of the early 1970s still own by then.
