Chargers take quick lead in New York

Wes Welker, Donald Butler AP

The Jets were off to a decent start against the Chargers on Sunday, moving the ball with former San Diego standout LaDainian Tomlinson running the ball on each of the first three plays.

And then the Chargers were up by seven points.

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, hit as he was releasing the ball, threw a pass that came in slightly behind tight end Dustin Keller.  He bobbled it a bit and after he secured it, Chargers linebacker Donald Butler took it away and ran into the end zone untouched.

It was shades of Hollywood Henderson in Super Bowl XIII, even though in that game the linebacker (also wearing number 56) ripped the ball from Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw.
