Chargers hold 11-point lead in New York at the half

LaDainian Tomlinson AP

On a weekend in which multiple teams coming off a bye (and the five straight days off that goes along with it) are struggling (the Seahawks, Broncos, and Titans are all being shut out), the Chargers look like they haven’t missed a beat, leading the Jets by 11 at the half, 21-10.

San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers has completed eight of 12 passes for 92 yards and a touchdown, to tight end Antonio Gates.  Running back Mike Tolbert has added 53 yards rushing and a touchdown — along with a touchdown saving tackle on the ensuing kickoff.

The Jets have two turnovers, and the Chargers have none.  An early fumble by Dustin Keller (actually, it was more of a candy-from-a-baby routine by Chargers linebacker Donald Butler) was followed by an interception of quarterback Mark Sanchez in the end zone by Chargers safety Eric Weddle.

Sanchez has completed 12 of 21 passes for 131 yards, a touchdown to Plaxico Burress, and the pick.  Former Charger LaDainian Tomlinson has five carries for 14 yards and two receptions for 25.

A loss by the Jets would drop them to 3-4, firmly into third place in the AFC East.

    Coincidentally 11 is the number of cheeseburgers Rex had for breakfast.

    looks like the refs are trying to hand the jets the game

    It’s not about what place you’re in. It’s about the rings, and Rex has four of them apparently, and is working on “One for The Big Toe.”

    Completely overlooked here is the Schottenheimer revenge angle……
