Donovan McNabb's 35 com- pletions tied his career high. His previous 35-completion game also came against the Chargers, in 2005. The Eagles have committed just one turnover in the first half all season. DeSean Jackson, who had a career-high eight receptions, had 16 passes targeted for him. He had had more than five passes thrown his way in just one of the Eagles' previous five games. The Eagles have scored on their first possession just four times in nine games.

Star running back LaDainian Tomlinson is staying with the San Diego Chargers. L.T. and the Chargers agreed yesterday to a renegotiated deal that gives the team salary-cap relief, according to two people familiar with the talks, both of whom spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal hadn't been announced. The deal ends a 2-month saga during which it looked as if Tomlinson, the 2006 NFL MVP, could be finished with the Chargers. Financial terms weren't immediately available.

LaDainian Tomlinson said he believes he has played his last game as a San Diego Charger. The 30-year-old running back told the San Diego Union-Tribune yesterday that he has thought for a while he would be let go by the Chargers. His comments came after more than a month of saying he did not know what would happen. The NFL's most valuable player in 2006 has 2 years remaining on his contract. He is due a $2 million roster bonus March 5 and would be paid $5 million in total salary in 2010.

Turns out LaDainian Tomlinson was hurt worse than Deion Sanders thought. The San Diego Chargers running back has been diagnosed with a second degree knee sprain of the collateral ligament, his agent, Tom Condon, told ESPN. The Chargers said it will take 6 more weeks to heal. After Tomlinson removed himself after two carries in the AFC Championship Game loss to New England, Sanders questioned the player's toughness, saying on the NFL Network that "big-time players must play big-time games.

Miami Dolphins linebacker Junior Seau insists he meant no harm when he suggested the way to stop former teammate LaDainian Tomlinson is to feed him fried chicken and watermelon. Asked how to limit the San Diego running back, Seau told reporters, "You give him watermelon and load him up with fried chicken and tell him to keep eating. " The Dolphins meet the Chargers, Seau's former team, on Monday night. Seau, who is of Samoan descent, later said he and Tomlinson, who is black, are friends and the comment was meant in jest.

LaDainian Tomlinson is about to become the highest-paid running back in the NFL. Tomlinson said after yesterday's practice he has agreed in principle to a deal with the San Diego Chargers that will eclipse the 8-year, $50.5 million contract signed by the Redskins' Clinton Portis in the offseason. Asked if his deal will be worth more than that given Portis, Tomlinson replied, "Absolutely. I don't think it will even be close. " Few players have matched Tomlinson's 3 years in the NFL, a span in which he's rushed for 4,564 yards and 37 touchdowns.

NEW YORK - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell heard appeals from four players in the New Orleans Saints bounty case, amid complaints that the process is unfair and that the league didn't prove its case. Goodell met Monday at NFL headquarters with Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma, who is suspended for the 2012 season, and defensive end Will Smith, who has been docked for four games; Green Bay defensive end Anthony Hargrove, suspended for eight games; and Cleveland linebacker Scott Fujita (three games)

News flash: LaDainian Tomlinson is good. But what if he is merely average Sunday against an imposing Bears defense? Will fickle fantasy owners wish they had snagged Steven Jackson instead? A wise fantasy veteran knows to start Tomlinson, regardless of opponent, and be realistic. Another 30-touchdown season isn't happening. The key is to surround the stars with talent to build the best team. Week 1 is the time to scan the radar for the next Marques Colston or Mike Furrey - guys who can plug holes in a lineup.

LaDainian Tomlinson broke Paul Hornung's 46-year-old NFL single-season scoring record on a 15-yard run in the first quarter of San Diego's 20-9 victory over Kansas City last night. The touchdown run gave him 180 points, breaking Hornung's record of 176 set with the Green Bay Packers in 1960. Hornung was a kicker as well as a halfback for Green Bay. Tomlinson then burst 85 yards for another TD in the second quarter, giving the Chargers a 14-3 lead. He has 31 TDs, extending the NFL single-season record he set last week.

For two games, he got nowhere. The versatile running back said he wanted the ball more often. He said he could do more than he was being asked. He reminded people that he was not solely a ballcarrier. Sound familiar? Although Eagles running back Brian Westbrook delivered a similar message yesterday, those words came from San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson earlier this season. Tomlinson was granted his wish. The Chargers gave him the ball more. "It's a long season," he said yesterday.

If Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez or running back Shonn Greene have any question about their early-career fortune, all they have to do is talk to their backfield teammate, LaDainian Tomlinson. He is in his 10th NFL season. He has been a league MVP, and is a three-time first-team all-pro and five-time Pro Bowler. And when Tomlinson walks onto Heinz Field Sunday, he will have played in exactly as many conference title games as Sanchez and Greene, a Winslow Township High School graduate whose critical late runs have sparked the Jets in the playoffs.

PERHAPS YOU saw last night that the NFL unveiled its 10 greatest players of all time. The problem with that list is guys such as Dick Butkus. How good could he be if he never helped anybody win a fantasy league? Just kidding. But here are the 10 best fantasy players of all time. (Boy, didn't Grandpop miss out by not having fantasy back when Jim Brown was in his prime?) 10. Walter Payton, RB: Had a string of 10 1,000-yard seasons in 11 years, including four in which he had 10-plus touchdowns . . . Also was an excellent receiver . . . It's a high crime that Refrigerator Perry scored a TD in Super Bowl XX and Payton did not. 9. Randy Moss, WR: Theatrics and petulance aside, he's put up monster numbers . . . Second all-time in TD catches (153)

If you haven't started thinking about your fantasy football draft, that's a mistake. The fantasy season, like winter, is often harsh and unforgiving. Those who underestimate its power and fail to steel themselves are left to suffer the same fate as Christopher McCandless, the student and outdoorsman who inspired Into the Wild . That means you'll die alone in an abandoned bus. No one wants that. Fear not. Page 2 has spent quite a bit of time getting ready for its many drafts, and we've stockpiled more than enough fantasy football provisions and know-how to keep every unprepared geek alive - at least for a little while.

LaDainian Tomlinson arrived at his locker under Qualcomm Stadium yesterday to find a small package and the growing whispers that his best days as an NFL running back were far behind. Soft-spoken and not prone to argument, there was little he could do about the latter so he busied himself with the package. Picking it up, he discovered it was from his wife and that on it she had written, "Open Immediately. " "I was thinking it was a necklace or something, I don't know," Tomlinson said, half-giggling, the laughter having little to do with the Chargers' 31-23 win over the Eagles.

THIS HAS BEEN such a tough year for first-rounders that even LaDainian Tomlinson is breaking hearts. Draft picks who looked like Angelina Jolie on Labor Day have turned into Carrot Top by Thanksgiving. Tom Brady couldn't get through the first quarter of the first game. Joseph Addai, Brian Westbrook, Steven Jackson, Marshawn Lynch and Larry Johnson all have been disappointments, and the stud wide receivers - you know who you are - have flopped. The only stud proving his worth is Adrian Peterson.
