DENVER (AP) -- Philip Rivers overcame an interception and a fourth-quarter fumble to lead the San Diego Chargers to a 29-24 win over Denver despite Tim Tebow's best efforts to rally the Broncos from a 16-point deficit.

Tebow threw for one touchdown and ran for another after replacing Kyle Orton to start the third quarter, and had one final shot for the win before his pass fell incomplete in the end zone on the final play.

Nick Novak kicked five field goals and Ryan Mathews ran for a career-best 125 yards for San Diego, which takes a 4-1 record into its bye week.

Denver (1-4) is full of questions heading into its break, chief among them: Is this Tebow's team or was this just a temporary fix?

Orton was awful in the first half. He completed 6 of 13 passes for 34 yards with no touchdowns and an interception.
