Today in Sports History: November 25

In 2018, LA Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers set an NFL single-game record, completing 25-straight passes in a 45-10 win against the Arizona Cardinals. The consecutive pass completions surpassed Mark Brunell and David Carr who previously shared the record (22). Rivers’ single-game completion percentage of 96.6% ranks second all-time. Now in his 17th season, Rivers has been one of the most consistently reliable NFL quarterbacks. Selected in the same draft class as star quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Ben Roethlisberger, Rivers has been the highest in pass completions, completion percentage, TD–INT ratio, passing yards, passer rating, and Pro Bowl honors. However, he has yet to win a championship. An 8x Pro Bowler, Rivers is currently the quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts.
