If he accomplishes that feat against the Chargers, it will be in his 39th career game, tying Earl Campbell, Edgerrin James, Adrian Peterson and Clinton Portis for the third-fastest all-time to that mark. Trailing only Eric Dickerson (33 games) and Jim Brown (38 games).
Safety Michael Griffin needs one interception this week to tie Pete Jaquess (1964) for the franchise record of an intereception in five consecutive games.
