At The Half: Broncos Struggle, Chargers Dominate Time Of Possession

SAN DIEGO (CBS4) – The Broncos defense couldn’t seem to keep the Chargers offense off the field on Thursday night in the first half.

The Chargers possessed the football for 20:27 of the half while the Broncos had the ball for only 9:33.

The score at the half is Chargers 10, Broncos 3.

Phillip Rivers and the Chargers converted 11 third downs against the Denver defense, scoring a touchdown and a field goal in the half.

The Broncos only score came in the second quarter — a field goal by Brandon McManus. Denver wound up with more punts (3) than first downs (2) in the half.

The Broncos will start the second half on offense.
