By the Numbers: Philip Rivers, Chargers attack Browns through the air

CARSON, California — Breaking down Sunday's loss to the Chargers...

85 - In a much-anticipated debut, Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon caught four passes for 85 yards (including long hauls of 39 and 28 yards). Gordon played in his first game in almost three years.

421 - It was the Chargers' offense, however, that stole the show. Despite struggling to convert production into points, they amassed 421 yards.

344 - Most of it came from quarterback Philip Rivers, who passed for 344 yards and a touchdown on 31-of-43 attempts.

107 - In addition to Gordon, Browns tight ends David Njoku and Seth DeValve combined for 107 yards on six receptions. Njoku also had a 28-yard touchdown reception that gave Cleveland its first and only lead of the afternoon.

100 - Similarly, the Chargers' tight ends had big days as Hunter Henry and Antonio Gates combined for 100 yards on eight catches.

291 - Cleveland finished with 291 yards, most of which came in the second half. The Browns had 124 yards at halftime.

2 - Two turnovers proved to be costly late for the Browns and thwarted a late rally. Rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer was strip-sacked by Joey Bosa on 3rd-and goal with under five minutes to play. On the next offensive possession, Kizer threw his first interception of the game. 

215 - Kizer finished with 215 passing yards, a touchdown and interception on 15-of-32 attempts. He also added 46 yards rushing on five carries.

12 - Linebacker Joe Schobert led the Browns with 12 tackles.

105 - Wide receiver Keenan Allen led the Chargers with 10 catches for 105 yards and a 7-yard touchdown that punctuated a 13-0 run by Los Angeles.

The Browns play the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 13.
