Broncos Vs. Chargers Score: San Diego Offense Sputters But Kicks Field Goal For 13-7 Lead

The Denver Broncos defense stopped the San Diego Chargers from finding the endzone on the team's first offensive drive of the second half, but Nick Novak kicked his second field goal of the game to put the Chargers lead at 13-7. A costly penalty by Lance Ball on the fourth down punt gave the Chargers better field position after the second punt, providing a short field to work with on the ensuing drive.

Philip Rivers opened San Diego's drive by connecting with Vincent Brown for a 30-yard gain, putting the team at Denver's 25-yard line. Quinton Carter gave Brown enormous room on that play. Rivers and Antonio Gates had several  pass-and-catch plays on the drive, but they ultimately fell short of the endzone. Novak kicked a 25-yardfield goal for the 13-7 lead.
