LT's still got it

When the Chargers let LT walk following the 2009 season, the common opinion was that he was done as a premiere running back in the NFL. It didn't look like that today, as LT ran all over the Buffalo Bills for 133 yards on 19 carries (7.0 per carry, for the math-challenged out there) and two touchdowns. That effort helped him pass Tony Dorsett for 7th place on the NFL's All-Time Rushing list. He also caught three passes for 22 yards in the Jets' 38-14 win.

He pretty much always had it... the problem was Norv Turner's inability to run an offense.

I agree, RA. He never lost it, he's just running behind an offensive line in NY that excels at run blocking. San Diego's line was built for pass blocking once Norv Turner arrived.

all over the Buffalo Bills

Not to be a downer, but this probably had a lot to do with it.
