Tomlinson, who's also sixth on the NFL's career rushing list, joins Larry Centers (827), Marshall Faulk (767) and Keith Byars (610) as running backs with 600 or more receptions. He got No. 600 on a 6-yard shovel pass from Mark Sanchez on third-and-7 from the Chargers' 22. The Jets kicked a field goal on the next play to cut their deficit to 7-3.

Tomlinson, playing for the first time against the team with which he spent his first nine seasons, entered the game needing a touchdown against San Diego to join Terrell Owens as the only players to score against all 32 NFL teams.
