Chargers powder blues pack punch

The San Diego Chargers snapped a five game losing streak to the Pittsburgh Steelers. They hadn't won since the 1994 AFC Championship Game at Three Rivers Stadium that sent the Chargers to Super Bowl XXIX, their first and only Super Bowl in franchise history.

The Chargers have won three straight nationally-televised night games. Their last two wins were both victories against the Raiders.

Since 1994, the Chargers have played nine regular-season home games wearing the Powder Blue jerseys with the white helmets and pants and the team is 4-5 in those eight games.

The Chargers have won 25 of their last 37 regular-season games under head coach Marty Schottenheimer and the team is 11-7 under Schottenheimer during the month of October.

San Diego has allowed 36 points over their first four games. It is the second fewest ever allowed in the first four games to open a season. In 1977, they allowed 34 points over their first four games, the top mark in Charger history.

Through the first four games of the season, the Chargers defense surrendered a total of 818 yards, the fewest they have ever allowed in a four-game stretch to open the season. The previous best was set in 1965 when they allowed 865 games over a four game span.

Nate Kaeding has hit 81 consecutive point after tries. It's the second-longest streak in team history and just six shy of Rolf Benirschke's team record (87).

David Binn played in his 195th career game on Sunday night when the Chargers hosted the Pittsburgh Steelers. It tied him with Doug Wilkerson (1971-1984) for the second-most games played in team history. Binn needs to play in five more games to tie the team record for games played (200), which is shared by Junior Seau (1990-2002) and Russ Washington (1968-1982).
