The win also gave the Broncos their first divisional win of the season and helped them avoid the season sweep. It also kept the Broncos in a tie for first place in the AFC West with the Oakland Raiders.
Both the Raiders and Broncos square off on Sunday Night next week.
The biggest news from the game was the health of Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, who was rocked by Chargers running back Melvin Gordon during Bradley Roby’s pick six.
He has been released from the hospital and is expected to return to work on Monday.
