San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for games played the third week of the 2005 season (September 25-26), the NFL announced today. Tomlinson rushed for 192 yards and three touchdowns, caught six passes for 28 yards, and threw a 26-yard touchdown pass for good measure in a 45-23 win against the New York Giants Sunday night. Tomlinson’s touchdowns marked the 15th consecutive game in which he scored one. The 5-10, 221-pound rusher’s streak of consecutive games with a touchdown is the second-longest in NFL history, trailing only Pro Football Hall of Famer Lenny Moore (19 games). Tomlinson’s 220 total scrimmage yards stand as the league’s single-game high thus far in 2005. For the fifth-year veteran from TCU, this is his fourth career Player of the Week distinction.
