Rivers leads Chargers to 21-13 victory against Broncos

So yes, the team that blew a 21-point lead against the Kansas City Chiefs, lost in the final 77 seconds to the Indianapolis Colts, fumbled twice in the final minutes to lose to the New Orleans Saints and botched a late field goal against the Oakland Raiders ... well, they won!

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers walks off the field after San Diego defeated the defending Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos 21-13 on Thursday night.

"I am anxious about our team", McCoy said, when asked if he feared for his job with another loss.

The San Diego Chargers went into Thursday Night Football in Week 6 against the Denver Broncos with a 1-4 record and a 10-game losing streak against AFC West opponents.

In the end, the Chargers (2-4) held on to defeat the Broncos (4-2), who failed to score after recovering an onside kick with 27 seconds remaining.

Rivers, in his 13th season with the Chargers and 11th as starter, has 43,094 career yards passing.

It turns out viewers didn't miss too much: Philp Rivers threw an incomplete pass in San Diego, but a penalty on the play gave the Chargers a first down.

Siemian said last week he expected to start, but was inactive as rookie first-round pick Paxton Lynch made his starting debut, going 23 of 35 or 223 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

The Giants and the London Trip: Great Opportunity to Build Bonds
Of course, the 2007 trip wasn’t very conducive; the team went to the practice field the moment they landed in London. The NFL is a little more complicated; there are always new faces coming into the fold, new rookies and free agents.

Dan Fouts threw for 43,040 yards in his 15-year career, all spent with San Diego from 1973-86. "I had a poster of him on my wall, and now I'm on a list next to him". He's a very good National Football League head coach, and he knows how to call a game, make adjustments, and motivate his players.

Boy, that's a lot of players to replace. Of Siemian's 50 passes, maybe a handful went for more than a handful of yards in the air.

Bosa had two sacks in his debut Sunday then was a consistent force Thursday night as the Chargers knocked off the previously undefeated Broncos.

Interim coach Joe DeCamillis took a glass-half-full approach, per Renck: "We have to do a better job of getting started. I still think with our defense, I'm going to put my money on them stopping them every time to be honest with you".

"I was afraid we were going to find another way [to lose]", Rivers told CBS Sports. "So we knew what we were capable of". The Broncos' offense looked like the playbook was still back in Denver with Kubiak. In the first quarter, he completed 10-of-12 attempts for 119 yards and a 135.8 passer rating. Taylor's fumble led to a San Diego field goal; Thomas' miscue effectively ended any realistic hopes of a comeback. Yet the Chargers got the win this time, taking down their rivals, 21-13. He's caught a touchdown for three straight weeks and is third in the team's receiving list.

The Chargers took a step toward salvaging their season, but still have plenty of room for improvement.

However, they still have big problems on special teams, especially with punt returner Travis Benjamin. After seven minutes, the Chargers were ahead, 7-0. Gordon limped off the field early in the fourth quarter.

The Broncos were held under 90 yards rushing for the fourth consecutive game. A unit that had become known for blowing leads early in the season and was allowing an average of more than 28 points per game, completely suffocated the Denver offense for the vast majority of the game. He will return Monday.
