It wasn’t LaDainian Tomlinson’s best game of the year, but it sure felt familiar. The Jets running back’s remarkable comeback story continued in Denver with 16 carries for 55 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winner.
The scores give Tomlinson 21 career touchdowns against the Broncos. The first 19 came with the Chargers, his old team that can’t win on the road.
Asked by Bob Glauber of Newsday whether he took added satisfaction in his old team struggling, Tomlinson couldn’t help himself.
“No comment,” he said with a grin. “The smile says it all.”
