Sanders caught TD's of 2, 31, and 3 yards, with the last one being the icing on the cake after a Phillip Rivers' interception. Running back Juwan Thompson ran for 2 TD's in the 2nd half, while Ronnie Hillman ran 20 times for 109 yards for Denver. The Broncos are now 6-1 on the season and have a 1.5 game lead over the 5-3 Chargers, who lost their 2nd straight.
Rivers finished 30/41 for 252 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. Antonio Gates had 2 TD receptions on the night, both in the 2nd half. Gates became the Chargers' career leader in receiving yards with 9,610, breaking Lance Alworth's record.
Manning broke another one of Brett Favre's record, as he now has 16 seasons of 20+ TD's, 1 more than Favre. With his 157th multiple TD game, Manning is now 2 shy of Favre's mark in that category. The Broncos have a big test after a long week, as they will visit the New England Patriots on November 2nd. After a red-hot streak, the Chargers look to snap a 2 game losing streak when they visit the Miami Dolphins next Sunday.
