In Sunday’s AFC Divisional Playoff game, the Denver Broncos were having no issue whatsoever throughout most of the game taking care of the San Diego Chargers. Peyton Manning and the Denver offense were in control and the defense was virtually having their way with Philip Rivers and the San Diego offense.

That was until the fourth quarter when the Chargers refused to go down without a fight.

The Chargers fought their way back to pull to withing 24-14 in the fourth quarter. After that score by Keenan Allen on a pass from Rivers to give them the 14, the San Diego special teams took over.

Needing anything they can get, the Chargers executed a perfect onside kick, which they were miraculously able to recover to keep their hopes alive.


After this, the Chargers weren’t able to put the ball in the end zone, but they did get a field goal out of it to make it a one-score game.
