Peyton Manning has gotten his elusive first road win since becoming a Denver Bronco, and he got it in dramatic fashion. The Broncos trailed the majority of the game, being down 24 points come half time against a red-hot Chargers team led by Philip Rivers.
The Chargers had a tale of two different halves. In the beginning the Chargers came out strong right from the gate with Rivers connecting to Antonio Gates with lightening precision (no pun intended). Peyton threw a pick to veteran Quentin Jammer who returned it for a touchdown, taking the Chargers to a commanding 17-0 lead.
It didn’t take long before another Rivers to Antonio Gates connection, which gave the Chargers a 24-0 half time lead. All seemed to be going perfect for the Chargers.
After the half, the Broncos soon got their act together and in the 3rd quarter Peyton Manning got the Broncos on the board, followed by a series of on target passes which gave Denver all the momentum, solidified by a number of Rivers interceptions. Denver never looked back after taking the lead away and Peyton continued putting on show throwing for a total of 309 yards, completing 24 of 30 passes for the game. The Broncos accomplished the biggest comeback in Monday Night Football hero and in doing so reach .500 in the win column

If anyone doubted Peyton Manning, they had better put them away as the Sheriff is back in town. Manning saw his Broncos get behind and completely outplayed in the first half, trailing 24-0 and no hope in sight, but like in other games this season, the “Sheriff” as people call Manning, stepped up and took the team on his back… again as the Broncos along with 6 Charger turnovers...
Ronnie Hillman is a very young back, that needs to learn patience, but if you watched the game last night, you could see Willis McGahee didn’t have that break away speed anymore. Ronnie Hillman was brought in because of his change of pace skills. Hillman is not being utilized correctly by the Broncos, they are trying to use him between the tackles, when he has the speed to take...
SAN DIEGO By all accounts, nobody in the Denver Broncos locker room put his fist through a blackboard at halftime Monday night. Nobody yelled and screamed, or kicked over a water cooler.

Omar Bolden was sorry he fumbled a kickoff. Trindon Holliday lamented...
