The Denver Broncos received the ball to start the second half, but quarterback Tim Tebow threw an interception into the hands of San Diego cornerback Quentin Jammer. The pass was intended for Demaryius Thomas, but he was surrounded by two defenders.
Philip Rivers then made three passes of 17, 26 and 12 yards to put the Chargers on the Broncos’ 12-yard line. Ryan Mathews then rushed for a 12-yard touchdown run.
The Chargers lead, 23-7, early in the third quarter.
