1982 – In a Monday Night Football game that features 1,102 yards of offense, the San Diego Chargers down the Cincinnati Bengals 50-34 at Jack Murphy Stadium. It's the first meeting between the two teams since Jan. 9, when the Bengals won 27-7 in the “Freezer Bowl” AFC Championship game, played at a gametime temperature of -9 degrees at Riverfront Stadium. Cincy leads 24-14 in the second quarter, but the Chargers score 23 points in the third, taking a 26-24 lead when Gary Johnson sacks Bengal QB Kenny Anderson in the end zone for a safety. Led by QB Dan Fouts, San Diego puts up 661 yards of offense, 486 of them passing. Anderson completes 40 of 56 passes for 416 yards. The combined yardage is only 31 short of the NFL record (1,133), set Nov. 19, 1950 in the Rams' 43-35 win over the New York Yanks at Yankee Stadium.
