The Broncos beat the San Diego Chargers 30-23 on Sunday afternoon, completing their first season sweep of the divisional foe since 2005.
The Chargers struck first with an interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter, but the Broncos scored the next 17 points of the game to enter halftime with a 10-point lead, holding San Diego to just 54 first-half yards.
A San Diego safety on quarterback Peyton Manning brought the Chargers to within 8 points early in the second half, and the two teams then traded touchdowns to make it 24-16 late in the third quarter.
A pair of fourth-quarter drives that took up more than 10 minutes of game clock and resulted in two field goals helped the Broncos gain separation, but San Diego was still able to make it interesting.
Inside the five-minute mark in the fourth quarter, San Diego drove 80 yards for a touchdown to bring the score to 30-23, which would end up as the final score as defensive end Elvis Dumervil sacked quarterback Philip Rivers on the final play of the game.
Quarterback Peyton Manning finished with 270 yards and three touchdowns and one interception on 25-of-42 passing.
Linebacker Von Miller led the way for the defense with three sacks, two forced fumbles and a tackle for loss.
