Broncos Vs. Chargers Score: Matt Prater Kicks 41-Yard Field Goal, Puts Denver Down, 13-10

The Denver Broncos had their offense stall inside San Diego Chargers territory late in the third quarter. Matt Prater kicked a 41-yard field goal to cut San Diego's lead to 13-10.

On the Broncos' previous drive, the team went three and out after having three straight plays go for negative yards. But this time, Tim Tebow and company drove from their own 20-yard line before being stopped at San Diego's 23-yard line. Willis McGahee had a 21-yard run to start the drive, but a 14-yard pass to Matthew Willis during the middle of the drive proved instrumental.

On 3rd-and-5, Tebow found Willis with little separation but threw it to him anyway. The reception put the Broncos at the 28-yard line, but a Tebow sack and two positive yardage plays on the ground brought the team to fourth down. Prater followed up with the field goal.
