Chargers' Antonio Gates breaks tight end TD record


Antonio Gates has carved his name into the record books.

The Chargers tight end caught his 112th career score on Sunday to break the record for most all-time touchdowns by a tight end, previously held by Chiefs and Falcons great Tony Gonzalez.

The touchdown put the Bolts up 17-10 over the Miami Dolphins in Los Angeles' home opener. The Chargers eventually lost, 19-17.

A three-time All-Pro, Gates now has 11,220 career receiving yards over 15 seasons in the league.
