TNF Recap Broncos Join Panthers in SB Hangover

Denver Broncos 13 San Diego Chargers 21

The San Diego Chargers came out looking crisp and ready to roll, putting the head coach-less Denver Broncos on their heals from the first play, driving right down the field and scoring, seemingly with ease.

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers did just enough to pass San Diego legend Dan Fouts on the all-time passing yardage list to become the most prolific passer in Charger history.

Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian had an opposite sort of night, throwing errant passes, and completing 30 out of 50 attempts. Denver never really seemed to get their offense in gear as their 15 game divisional road winning streak came to an end.

Denver gave up a safety on a holding penalty in their own end zone several minutes into the fourth quarter but managed to recover a muffed return on the ensuing free kick. Siemian managed to notch his only touchdown of the game a few minutes later, but it was too little, too late for the Super Bowl Champs.
