Air Coryell is explosive and can beat defenses with its many weapons. Today, it's Kellen Winslow's turn. The future Hall of Fame tight end catches five touchdown passes, tying an NFL record set by Bob Shaw of the Chicago Cardinals in 1950, as Don Coryell's San Diego Chargers crush the Raiders, 55-21, in Oakland.

Winslow is on the receiving end of four touchdown passes from quarterback Dan Fouts and one from running back Chuck Muncie on an option play.

Fouts, also a future Hall of Famer, finishes with six touchdown passes, one shy of the league record but still a San Diego mark.
