Notable Broncos-Chargers Rivarly Moments Last 10 years:

December 24, 2007: In the fourth quarter of a Monday night game at Qualcomm Stadium, Broncos’ quarterback Jay Cutler was involved in a verbal scuffle with Chargers’ quarterback Philip Rivers and linebacker Matt Wilhelm, with Rivers taunting Cutler and Wilhelm mocking a “waving” gesture. Broncos’ cornerback Champ Bailey took exception to Rivers’ taunting of Cutler.

September 14, 2008: With 52 seconds left in the fourth quarter, the Chargers were leading 38–31 in Denver. The Broncos hiked the ball on 2nd-and-goal from the Chargers’ 1-yard line. Jay Cutler rolled out to the right and fumbled the football before he brought his arm forward, which was recovered by Chargers’ linebacker Tim Dobbins. However, referee Ed Hochuli called the play dead as he believed it to be an incomplete pass, so the ball was returned to the Broncos at the 10-yard line (the spot where the ball hit the ground). Two plays later, on 4th-and-goal from the 4, Cutler threw a touchdown pass to wide receiver Eddie Royal to make the score 38–37. Instead of kicking an extra point to tie the game and send it to overtime, Broncos’ head coach Mike Shanahan opted for a 2-point conversion. Cutler completed the conversion with another pass to Royal, giving the Broncos a controversial 39–38 victory.

December 28, 2008: The Broncos and Chargers met in the 2008 regular-season finale in San Diego, with the winner clinching the AFC West title. Three weeks earlier, the Broncos were 8–5 and the Chargers were 5–8, with the Broncos losing their next two games and the Chargers winning their next two to pull to within one game of the Broncos for the division lead. Three and a half months after the aforementioned controversial Broncos’ win in Denver, the Chargers exacted revenge, with an emphatic 52–21 win that not only completed a monumental Broncos’ season-ending collapse, but also denied the Broncos a playoff berth. The two teams finished the 2008 season tied for first-place in the AFC West, each with an 8–8 record, however, the Chargers won the division based on a better record against AFC West divisional opponents (5–1 to the Broncos’ 3–3). This was also Mike Shanahan’s last game as the Broncos’ head coach, as he was fired two days later after 14 seasons.

November 27, 2011: Quarterback Tim Tebow led the Broncos to a 16–13 win at Qualcomm Stadium in overtime, with kicker Matt Prater nailing a 37-yard field goal with 29 seconds left. Earlier in overtime, the Broncos blocked a 53-yard attempt by Chargers’ kicker Nick Novak, however, Broncos’ head coach John Fox called a timeout prior to the kick. Novak subsequently missed the second attempt.

October 15, 2012: Trailing 24–0 at halftime after back-to-back special teams turnovers and an interception returned for a touchdown, quarterback Peyton Manning led the Broncos to a stunning 35–24 comeback win in San Diego. Three second-half interceptions and two lost fumbles by Chargers’ quarterback Philip Rivers swung the momentum toward the Broncos’ favor, as Manning and the Broncos capitalized on each Chargers’ mistake. Manning went 13/14 for 167 yards and three touchdowns in the second half, hitting Demaryius Thomas on a 29-yard score with 10:56 left in the third quarter to get the Broncos on the scoreboard. Following a 65-yard touchdown on a fumble recovery by cornerback Tony Carter, the Broncos suddenly found themselves down only 10 as the Chargers watched their comfortable halftime lead dwindle. Manning added two more touchdown passes in the fourth quarter, finding Eric Decker on a 7-yard score and then connecting with Brandon Stokley on a 21-yard pitch and catch to give the Broncos a 28–24 lead with 9:03 left. Cornerback Chris Harris sealed the comeback with a 46-yard interception return to put the Broncos up 35–24 with 2:06 left. The defense added one final takeaway as Rivers fumbled in the game’s final minute to end what was certainly an instant Monday Night Football classic.

September 11, 2017: The Chargers were attempting a game-tying 44-yard field goal at Sports Authority Field at Mile High with five seconds left in the game, after trailing 24–7 to begin the fourth quarter. However, Chargers’ placekicker Younghoe Koo’s field goal attempt was blocked by Broncos’ defensive end Shelby Harris for a Broncos’ 24–21 win. Koo’s initial field goal attempt was good, but it was nullified as the result of Broncos’ head coach Vance Joseph calling a timeout in order to ice the kicker, forcing a second attempt.

October 22, 2017: In the first game between the two teams at StubHub Center, the Chargers routed the Broncos by forcing three turnovers. Travis Benjamin of the Chargers returned a punt 65 yards for a touchdown, and caught a 44-yard touchdown pass, as the Chargers won 21–0, giving the Broncos their first shutout loss in 25 years.
