In the two drives after Knowshon Moreno put the Broncos up by seven, neither team was able to do anything on the next two drives. However, the Chargers started something on their next drive. Facing a 4th-and-14, Chargers punter Mike Scifres successfully completed a fake punt pass to Mike Tolbert for 28 yards. Tolbert then rushed for another 16 yards before Philip Rivers and Malcom Floyd connected for a six-yard touchdown reception.
The Broncos and Chargers are tied at seven.
