With the half winding down, quarterback Tim Tebow threw an 18-yard pass to Eric Decker down the seam for a touchdown to put Denver on the scoreboard. The score narrowed the Chargers lead to 10-7 with 55 seconds left in the first half.
The drive started on the Chargers’ 46-yard line after Eddie Royal gave the Broncos great field position with a speedy 31-yard punt return. The key play of the drive came on second-and-7 from the Chargers’ 43-yard line, when Tebow hit Fells over the middle for a 19-yard completion. Fells fumbled when running after the catch but the Broncos were able to recover, setting up Tebow’s pass to Decker.
The touchdown catch gave Decker eight touchdown receptions on the season. It’s the most by a Bronco first- or second-year receiver since 1960.
The Chargers ran the clock out to complete the half and the Broncos will receive to start the second half.
