    SAN DIEGO 49

    Points were aplenty in tonight's AFC West rivalry between the Chargers and the Broncos...

    A total of 104 combined points were put on the board as players got into the endzone every way possible: offense, defense, and special teams.

    San Diego, a team that's seemed to have a pretty rough year, always puts up a hell of a fight.

    Philip Rivers and his supporting cast know how to score points in a hurry.

    TE Antonio Gates had over 100 yards receiving and found the endzone, while RB Ryan Mathews got it done on the ground, picking up over 100 yards and rushing for a score.

    The star of the game was WR/KR Eddie Royal, who took 2 kickoffs back to the house - Royal's inspired performance did not go unnoticed. The Broncos special teams unit claim that he is the best return man in the game and should represent in the AFC in the Pro Bowl.

    Franchise signal caller Brock Osweiler took another huge step towards becoming the best of the best in the AFC. Big Os had a perfect passer rating and threw 6 TDs against the SD defense. He's come a long way from being an inaccurate rocket-armed game manager.

    Offensive Rookie of the Year frontrunner Darrian Reagan picked up over 100 yards after a rough start against a strong front seven that seemed focused on stopping him. An 80 yard run in the second half changed momentum and really shot life back into a lackadaisical Denver squad.
