Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson makes his first visit to Oakland since joining the team before the 2010 season, but the former Chargers running back is quite familiar with playing in the place they call "The Black Hole." 

Tomlinson flashed back to the 2002 season, when the Chargers and Raiders went into overtime on Oct. 20. 

"It my first time in my years in San Diego, and it was the first time we won in Oakland," he said. "I happened to make the winning [19-yard] touchdown run,  and when I got to the enedzone, everybody piled on me. Pretty soon, they started throwing stuff at us, beer bottles, everything. We hurried up and got off the field and celebrated in the locker room because we didn't want to celebrate on the field." 

The win broke a four-game losing streak to the Raiders in Oakland.
