Peyton Manning, Broncos Stun Chargers in Greatest Comeback in 'Monday Night Football' HistorySAN DIEGO — Peyton Manning
threw three touchdown passes in the second half, and Tony Carter and
Chris Harris scored off turnovers by Philip Rivers as the Denver Broncos
overcame a 24-0 halftime deficit to stun the San Diego Chargers 35-24
on Monday night.

Manning was 13 of 14 for 167 yards in the second half for the Broncos (3-3), who tied the Chargers atop the AFC West.

Rivers was intercepted four times — three in the fourth quarter — and lost two fumbles.

Manning's 21-yard touchdown pass
to Brandon Stokley gave Denver its first lead of the game, 28-24, with
9:03 left. Stokley outleaped defensive back Marcus Gilchrist to catch
the ball, and then got both feet down before tumbling out of the end
zone.

Harris sealed the victory with a
46-yard interception return for a touchdown with 2:05 left. It was his
second pick of the night.

Manning finished 24 of 30 for 309 yards with one interception.
