This week THE NFL TODAY previews the match-up between the AFC North-leading Cincinnati Bengals against the AFC West-leading San Diego Chargers with a feature on Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson. Tomlinson, in his ninth season, passed Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown in Week 13 as eighth on the NFL all-time rushing list and was just elected as one of the all-time greatest Chargers in franchise history as San Diego celebrates its 50th anniversary. Tomlinson talks about his performance so far this season, how the team has turned around from a 2-3 start, and how the Chargers may be overlooked as a Super Bowl contender. Deb Gelman produces.
