After leading the Broncos 24-0 at halftime, San Diego fell underneath an avalanche of turnovers and three Peyton Manning touchdown passes to fall 35-24.
How does a team blow a 24-0 halftime lead? Let’s take a look at the result of San Diego’s second half possessions:
- Fumble, returned for a TD by Denver.
- INT, returned for a TD by Denver.
That’s right. They committed FIVE TURNOVERS in the second half.
Denver scored 35 unanswered points, becoming the first team in NFL history to trail by 24 and win by double digits.
Phil Rivers went from being the toast of San Diego to a third-rate quarterback in the span of 30 minutes.
The Broncos and Chargers are now tied atop the AFC West at 3-3.
