The San Diego Chargers were put into the situation that they’ve been in for the past several games. They had the lead going into the fourth quarter.

Instead of losing, the Chargers were able to escape with a 21-13 win over the Denver Broncos at Qualcomm Stadium. It was the National Football League’s Thursday night showcase.

The Chargers snapped a 10-game losing streak against AFC West teams. They previously lost to the Oakland Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs this season.

Trevor Siemian, the Broncos quarterback, saw his Hail Mary come up short as it was batter to the ground well before the end zone. It also snapped a double-digit win streak for the Broncos over their conference foes.

The Broncos scored the final 10 points in the game. Brandon McManus made a 46-yard field goal.

Then, Siemian hit Bennie Fowler for a five-yard touchdown with 8:13 left in the game.

The Chargers recorded a safety early in the fourth quarter. Siemian hit Demaryius Thomas for a 15-yard reception. However, Russell Okung was hit with a holding penalty in the end zone, which resulted in a no-play safety.

Josh Lambo had three field goals in the third quarter. He also had a 37 yard field goal in the second quarter.

McManus made a 29 yard field goal in the second quarter, as well.

Philip Rivers hit rookie tight end Hunter Henry for a five-yard touchdown in the first.
