Broncos Vs. Chargers Halftime Score: Tim Tebow Finds Eric Decker, Cuts San Diego Lead To 10-7

The Denver Broncos had to wait until the final two minutes of the first half to finally get on the scoreboard. Taking advantage of a 43-yard San Diego punt, Eddie Royal brought the ball to the San Diego 46-yard line on the return. On the ensuing drive, the Broncos got lucky after Daniel Fells caught a 19-yard pass from Tim Tebow and then fumbled it. The Broncos came up with it in the scramble and then gained six yards on a one-yard run by Tim Tebow and a five-yard penalty on cornerback Quentin Jammer. Tebow then found Eric Decker for an 18-yard touchdown pass on the next play, making the score 10-7.

Elvis Dumervil delivered a sack for a 13-yard loss on Philip Rivers on the previous drive. As Broncos PR rep Patrick Smyth noted, Dumvervil now has a four-game streak of recording at least half of a sack. It was all negated on the next play when D.J. Williams was flagged for a 15-yard foul because Mike Tolbert's face mask came off. It was a questionable call given that replays were unclear if Williams really did anything to Tolbert to cause that.

Tebow is 3-of-7 for 45 yards at halftime. Willis McGahee has 11 carries for 44 yards.
