The Broncos have put an exclamation point on a dominant second half performance with a 46-yard interception return for a touchdown by Chris Harris that has made it 35 straight points for the Broncos.
Needing a late rally, San Diego took over at its own 14-yard line with 3:52 to play, trailing by four points. Quarterback Philip Rivers found wide receiver Malcolm Floyd for 10 yards, then connected with Floyd again three plays later for a first down.
But nearing midfield, Rivers’ pass toward the left sideline was picked off by cornerback Chris Harris, who caught the ball in stride and raced into the end zone to make it 35-24. Denver now has scored two defensive touchdowns and forced five turnovers, four interceptions and one fumble recovery. Four of the five turnovers came in the second half as Denver outscored the Chargers 35-0.
It marks a pair of career firsts for Harris, who now has his first career defensive touchdown on the same night as his first-ever two-interception performance.
