    LaDainian Tomlinson isn't finished yet and neither is the AFC West race.
    Tomlinson scored twice to continue his climb up the career rushing and scoring lists, and the San Diego Chargers beat the Philadelphia Eagles 31-23 on Sunday to pull into a tie atop the AFC West with the slumping Denver Broncos.

    The Chargers and Broncos, both 6-3, play next Sunday in Denver. Four weeks ago, the Chargers appeared dead in the water, 3.5 games back after losing 34-23 to the then-undefeated Broncos.
    The score of the Broncos' 27-17 loss at Washington -- Denver's third straight -- was announced moments before kickoff in San Diego. The Chargers then went out and won their fourth straight.
