    The touchdown run gave him 180 points, breaking Hornung's record of 176 set with the Green Bay Packers in 1960. Hornung was a kicker as well as a halfback for Green Bay.

    Tomlinson then burst 85 yards for another TD in the second quarter, giving the Chargers a 14-3 lead.

    On the first TD, Tomlinson started off right tackle, then broke around right end to score untouched. Nate Kaeding's PAT made it 7-0.

    Tomlinson has 31 TDs, extending the NFL single-season record he set a week earlier.

    Tomlinson ended up with 199 yards rushing in a 20-9 victory over the Chiefs.

    Prior to kickoff, there was a video tribute and moment of silence for Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt, who died Wednesday night of complications from prostate cancer. He was 74. The Chiefs had "LH" decals on the backs of their helmets.

    Hunt was the founder of the AFL and a driving force in the merger with the NFL. He even came up with the term "Super Bowl."
