The San Diego Chargers beat the Denver Broncos Sunday while LaDainian Tomlinson scored four times and reached 100 touchdowns faster than any player in NFL history. But if that record was not enough, there were more broken. The Chargers became the first NFL team to win four straight games after trailing by 17 or more points and the first to win four straight when allowing at least 24 points in each game.

Tomlinson told reporters “Resilient bunch of guys. Our team, we’re never out of it, and I think this is a very special team because no matter what happens, no matter how much we’re down, we’re never out of the football game.”

Tomlinson has scored 19 touchdowns in his last six games. By scoring 100 touchdowns in 89 games, the Chargers running back beat out Hall of Famer Jim Brown and Emmitt Smith. He has 102 TDs and rushed over 1,000 yards for the sixth straight season.

This was the first time in 5 years that Tomlinson has won in Denver. “I feel like Steve Young in a way when he said, ’Get the monkey off my back.’ This is not the Super Bowl, but it’s a huge burden that has been lifted off me. In five years I hadn’t won in Denver. Hadn’t had much success here, either. It feels good.”

Denver blew a 24-7 lead in the third quarter and ended up losing 35 to 27. The win puts the Charger record at 8-2 while sticking the Broncos with a 7-3 record. Tomlinson was named MVP.
