12/10/2006 - SAN DIEGO — With chants of "L.T! L.T!" pouring from the stands, LaDainian Tomlinson delivered a record and a division title for San Diego.

He led the Chargers to a 48-20 win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Tomlinson had three scores overall. The victory, coupled with Kansas City's 20-10 loss to Baltimore, gave the Chargers (11-2) their second division title in three seasons. The Chargers also grabbed the inside track to home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs when Indianapolis lost 44-17 at Jacksonville to fall into a tie with Baltimore at 10-3.
Chargers dump Denver 48-20 - Denver Post - Jim Armstrong
12/10/2006 - San Diego - If the season ended today - not a bad idea if you think about it - the Broncos wouldn't be in the playoffs. They took a 7-5 record into today's game against the Chargers, leaving them on the outside looking in at the postseason. And things only got worse as the day progressed. A lot worse. The Chargers, an increasingly popular pick as the best team in the NFL, sure looked the part against the Broncos. They jumped ahead 14-0 in the first quarter and added two more touchdowns in the second quarter, then withstood a third-quarter surge to win 48-20 at Qualcomm Stadium.
