    Another week, another LaDainian Tomlinson touchdown.

    Tomlinson extended his NFL-record streak of consecutive games with a rushing touchdown to 16 Sunday with an 8-yard run against the New England Patriots. With the Chargers trailing 14-10 late in the second quarter, Tomlinson weaved his way through New England's aggressive front and plunged into the end zone to give San Diego a three-point advantage just before halftime.

    The previous NFL record for consecutive games with a rushing touchdown before Tomlinson broke it was 13 games, a mark shared by a pair of former Washington Redskins, John Riggins (1982-83) and George Rogers (1985-86).

    Tomlinson now eyes the NFL record for consecutive games with ether a rushing or receiving touchdown. That mark is held by former Baltimore Colt Lenny Moore, who scored in 19 straight games from 1963-1965.

    Tomlinson's seven touchdowns this season lead the NFL.
