Broncos Suffer Worst Home Loss In 41 Years

By  | 

Philip Rivers and Michael Turner led the San Diego Chargers' offense in a 41-3 pounding at Denver.

Turner ran for 147 yards on just 10 carries, including a 74-yard scoring burst that capped the scoring with 9:42 remaining. Rivers threw for 270 yards and two touchdowns on 13-of-18 passing for a nearly perfect quarterback rating of 151.4. He also had his first career touchdown run.

LaDainian Tomlinson chipped in with 140 total yards, including 67 on the ground. He also had three receptions for 73 yards as the 2-and-3 Chargers ended a three-game losing streak.

It was the Broncos' worst home loss since 1966 and left them 2-and-3. Jay Cutler passed for 232 yards but couldn't engineer a scoring drive after Jason Elam's 30-yard field goal made it 17-3 late in the first half.
