DENVER -- San Diego Chargers running back
LaDainian Tomlinson reached 100 touchdowns faster than any player in NFL
history Sunday night, scoring on three runs and a 51-yard
catch against the Denver Broncos.
Tomlinson scored four times and has scored 19 touchdowns in the
last six games. He reached 100 in his 89th game, four games faster
than Hall of Famers Jim Brown and Emmitt Smith.
Tomlinson scored on a 3-yard run in the first quarter and added
a 3-yard TD run in the third to get to the century mark. As usual,
he didn't have a big celebration. He simply tucked the ball in his
left arm and walked off the field to the Chargers bench.
Tomlinson's second score cut Denver's lead to 24-14 late in the
third quarter, and he got his 101st on a 51-yard catch and run a
few minutes later, making it 24-21. The Chargers iced the game with Tomlinson's fourth score, a 1-yard touchdown run with 1:14 left.
