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.
Broncos Radio Network announcer Ed McCaffrey commented that the Broncos sideline seemed to be lacking some energy during the first half.
The Broncos will start the second half on offense.
