Plus, Tomlinson has 19 total touchdowns against Oakland. With two touchdowns Sunday he eclipses Hall of Fame running back Marcus Allen for the most total touchdowns through 15 games against a single opponent since 1970.

The Chargers hope their climb back up the AFC West standings continues in Oakland, where they will seek their 10th straight win over the Raiders.
