ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson has extended his NFL record of consecutive 10-touchdown seasons to nine in a row.
Tomlinson scored on a 1-yard run in the first quarter of San Diego's game Sunday at Dallas. It was his 10th rushing TD this season.
It was also Tomlinson's 136th career rushing TD, all since 2001.
The 136 rushing TDs matched Emmitt Smith's record for the most in a decade. Smith had 136 of his 164 career touchdowns from 1990-99.
Tomlinson, who went to nearby TCU, played only his second NFL game in Dallas. His other came in the second game of his NFL career in 2001, when Smith was still playing for the Cowboys.
