Although he typically lines up in front of LaDainian Tomlinson, San Diego fullback Lorenzo Neal is unquestionably the man behind the Man. In each of the last nine seasons, Neal has paved the way for a 1,000-yard back -- Tomlinson, Corey Dillon, Eddie George, Warrick Dunn and Adrian Murrell -- yet he himself has never run for more than 175 yards in a season.

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jevon Kearse, St. Louis Rams wide receiver Isaac Bruce and San Diego Chargers fullback Lorenzo Neal were released Thursday as NFL teams maneuvered their rosters to get ready for the start of free agency. Kearse was in the middle of a $66-million, eight-year deal signed in 2004 that made him at the time the highest-paid defensive end in NFL history. Bruce, the last player remaining from the Rams' 1995 move from Los Angeles, was a second-round draft pick in 1994.

We're at the point where any San Diego Chargers victory can be summarized in two words. This goes back to Nov. 19, when between updates I saw a 24-7 San Diego deficit against Denver turn into a 35-27 Chargers victory and I text-messaged a friend to ask what happened. My buddy's reply: "LT happened." Flash-forward to Sunday, when the Chargers had to deal with a strong Oakland Raiders defensive effort, a shaky performance by quarterback Philip Rivers and a 14-7 Raiders lead in the fourth quarter.

Time, TV: 1:30 p.m., Channel 2. Story line: This is a rematch of the Chargers' 23-17 overtime victory Dec. 9 at Tennessee -- the Titans' only loss in their last five games. There was no love lost between the teams, with four players getting fined a total of $32,500 by the NFL for various illegal hits. The Chargers are rolling, having won six consecutive games. LaDainian Tomlinson led the NFL in rushing with 1,474 yards. The Titans were fifth in the NFL against the run, giving up only 92.4 yards a game, but Tomlinson had 146 yards rushing against the Titans -- one of only two backs with more than 100 yards against Tennessee this season.

The sky was dark and the weather cool but for local fans it was all sunshine and warmth Sunday as the surging San Diego Chargers beat the New Orleans Saints, 43-17, in front of 59,662 at Qualcomm Stadium. The Chargers (6-3) remained tied for first place in the AFC West Division, defying predictions. "We're still in the process of surprising a lot of people," free safety Jerry Wilson said. "We're playing with a lot more energy," said fullback Lorenzo Neal, who played on last season's 4-12 team.
