    <font class="newstext"> The Chargers promised all summer they would play LaDainian Tomlinson and Michael Turner in the same backfield, but they used that alignment only sporadically in the season's first three games.</font>

    <font class="newstext"> That all changed in last night's second half ." ." . and so did the Chargers' ability to run the ball against the Pittsburgh Steelers. </font>

    <font class="newstext"> In the first half of the Chargers' 23-13 victory at Qualcomm Stadium, Tomlinson carried seven times and gained 9 yards. As a team, the Chargers had eight carries for eight yards. </font></blockquote>
