Just before the half, the Denver Broncos had an opportunity to extend their lead by three touchdowns, but quarterback Peyton Manning made an ill-advised pass into the back of the endzone and the ball was up for grabs.

Luckily for the San Diego Chargers, linebacker Donald Butler was in the right place at the right time and was able to come down with the interception just before the half. Butler made an incredible play to get his feet down in bounds as he showed great body awareness to complete the turnover.

San Diego decided to play it safe after the interception and went into the half down by two touchdowns.

They will hope to ride the momentum that they gained with the late turnover and begin to turn the game around in the second half.
