Broncos Hammered By Chargers Again

LaDainian Tomlinson took over the NFL rushing lead with his fourth straight 100-yard game in the San Diego Chargers' 23-3 win over Denver. Tomlinson had a 17-yard scoring run among his 107 yards and then sat out most of the second half.

The 10-and-5 Chargers won their fifth straight game, and for the ninth time in 11 games. They need to beat Oakland on Sunday to secure the AFC's Number-3 playoff seed.

Tomlinson scampered into the lead with 1,418 yards in pursuit of his second straight rushing title. His route was made easier when Pittsburgh's Willie Parker, who finished the season with 1,316 yards, broke his right lower leg on Thursday night.

L.T.'s closest pursuer is Minnesota rookie Adrian Peterson, who has 1,305 yards. San Diego's Nate Kaeding kicked field goals of 40, 23 and 29 yards. Denver's Jason Elam kicked a 23-yarder.

The Chargers held the 6-and-9 Broncos without a touchdown in the season series. The Bolts beat the Broncos 41-3 at Denver in October.

It was a rough night for Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler, who was born in Santa Claus, Indiana. Cutler was sacked four times, lost a fumble and threw two interceptions.

    The Colorado Media Broncos lose again...so what else is new. Overrated and darlings of the media. I can't wait for the off season and all their moves and the media puts them in the Superbowl as early as July at pre season camp. Just another NFL team these days.

    LT only took over because Willie Parker has a broken leg.
