On the first play of the Chargers possession that followed Demaryius Thomas’ touchdown, linebacker Wesley Woodyard jumped in front of a Philip Rivers pass and made his team-leading third interception of the season.
Woodyard caught the pick at the Chargers’ 35-yard line and returned it to the 8-yard line. He and cornerback Chris Harris are two of the three players in the league with multiple interceptions and multiple sacks through Week 10.
Quarterback Peyton Manning hit running back Lance Ball for a 6-yard gain down to the 1-yard line on third down, so the Broncos had to settle for a 19-yard Matt Prater field goal.
The kick gave the Broncos a 3-point lead at 10-7 with 11:37 remaining in the half.
