During Koo's second attempt at a game-tying field goal, Broncos player Shelby Harris was able to bust through and deflect the kick, ensuring a Broncos' victory.

"Obviously, having those two speed rushers, that's going to be a chore for any tackle in this league", Broncos coach Vance Joseph said. "But a win is a win".

To that point, Siemian had showed composure in recording three touchdowns and helping the Broncos take a 24-7 lead.

Undrafted rookie Younghoe Koo made the first kick, but the Broncos called timeout before the snap.

"My two biggest things were my family time and my preparation and what I owe this football team", Rivers said.

In the end, the Chargers couldn't get it done. Anderson bobbled the ball, though, and ended up dropping it.

Katia dissipates over Mexico but heavy rainfall continues
It's then predicted to turn northeast, traveling north of the coast of Puerto Rico on Sunday before turning back into the ocean. As of 7 a.m., Hurricane Katia was 210 miles east of Tampico, Mexico, and 195 miles northeast of Veracruz, Mexico.

"This was a must-win game", said cornerback Chris Harris Jr.

Harris benefited from intel provided by Derek Wolfe. "That's a big moment right there".

There wasn't much running to be done by the Chargers in the second half, not with Los Angeles facing a 17-point deficit at the start of the fourth quarter. The Chargers took advantage by marching down the field for their second touchdown of the day.

The touchdown (and ensuing PAT) evened the Chargers at 7-7 against the Denver Broncos. That score gave the Broncos all the momentum heading into the locker room and into the third quarter. Demaryius Thomas led the night in receiving, totaling 67-yards on five catches.

The Broncos were trying to run down the clock on their ensuing possession when linebacker Korey Toomer ripped the ball out of Jamal Charles' grasp, and Los Angeles recovered at the Denver 38.

Siemian quickly moved the Broncos 43 yards downfield capped by his second scoring pass to Fowler, a 6-yarder with 10:27 left in the third quarter.

Odell Beckham Jr. unlikely to play Sunday night
The New York Giants head down to Arlington to take on the Dallas Cowboys for the first Sunday Night Football game of the season. The diminutive receiver led the team in receptions a year ago with 75, making him an especially effective play in PPR leagues.

With 42 seconds left, the Chargers found themselves three yards shy of midfield, fourth-and-1.

The boring, stubborn, out-dated offense of yesteryear was suddenly a thing of the past, as McCoy featured all sorts of misdirection, off-beat formations and creativity to get the Broncos in favorable positions. Siemian attempted to throw to Fowler and it bounced off a foot, causing an interception. The Chargers got most of their yardage during the drive on a 40-yard pass-interference penalty called against Roby for grabbing at the jersey of Keenan Allen. Allen was flagged on the play for unsportsmanlike conduct for taunting. But it didn't matter.

Rivers finished the game with 192 yards and three touchdowns with an interception. With a chance to secure the win following a 44-yard reception by tight end Virgil Green, the Broncos fizzled. But the Chargers defense stuck it to them again with back-to-back sacks of Siemian.

If either Hayward holds on or the field goal connects, we'd be having a different conversation right now.

In the fourth quarter however, the entire Broncos offense was stagnant. "He was poised. He was smart at the line of scrimmage for us tonight, accurate with the football", Joseph said.

"I'm going to be real with you: I have no clue what happened", Harris said of his heroics. But, shoot, a win's a win.

He added that his administration was monitoring the hurricane around the clock and would everything possible to save lives. Trump also issued a disaster declaration for Puerto Rico on Sunday and expanded federal funds available to the U.S.
