(Newser) – Yesterday's LaDanian Tomlinson Show featured San Diego's eighth straight victory over Oakland, a 28-14 game that evened the Chargers to 3-3 and toppled the Raiders from atop the NFC West. Tomlinson topped out at 198 rushing yards and scored all four Charger touchdowns, while Oakland's Daunte Culpepper found himself sacked at every turn, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

San Diego stuffed the Raiders' running game, holding them to just 53 rushing yards, and Culpepper threw two picks and fumbled for three turnovers. "We got sacks. We didn't stop the run and we didn't run the ball. We got penalties. We were a bad team today," summed up Raiders coach Lane Kiffin.
