Antonio Gates scores record 112th touchdown for Los Angeles Chargers

Antonio Gates scores record 112th touchdown for Los Angeles Chargers”

Los Angeles Chargers star Antonio Gates made history, becoming the tight end with the most touchdowns in NFL. He passed Tony Gonzalez, who caught 111 touchdowns passes in his 17-year career with the Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons.

Click on the video above to watch Gates' record-breaking TD reception, a seven-yard pass from Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers.

The touchdown broke a 10-10 tie at the StubHub Center in Carson, California and the game was briefly paused as Gates was mobbed by celebratory team-mates.

Gates also made his 900th career reception in the first half of the game, becoming the third tight end in National Football League history to hit the mark. Only Peyton Manning to Harrison (114) and Steve Young to Rice (92) combined for more, according to Chase Stuart of Football Perspective.

Gates moves up to sixth place in career touchdown receptions, regardless of position.

Perhaps the most interesting part of Gonzalez and Gates atop this list of tight-end touchdowns receptions is that both were college basketball players.
