The Denver Broncos got a crucial road-win on Sunday against the San Diego Chargers today to improve to 7-1 entering their Week 11 AFC West showdown-game against the Kansas City Chiefs that will see the winner ascend into first-place.

They built a 28-6 lead in the third quarter, highlighted by three receiving touchdowns by wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and four passing touchdowns by Peyton Manning, who continues to look like a runaway-favorite for the NFL MVP award.

Backup Brock Osweiler was preparing to enter the contest, but the Broncos called timeout, and Manning did not miss a snap. Manning has been listed on the injury report with an ankle ailment before each of Denver’s last two games.
