Niners’ Roast Cards

Michael Crabtree caught two of those passes, and Randy Moss caught the other. All Arizona could muster up was a field goal, as the Cards were held to seven yards rushing at home in Glendale. San Francisco improves to 6-2, while Arizona falls to 4-4, after starting the season 4-0.

Broncos Bolt Chargers

At halftime the score was 24-0, San Diego. For the San Diego Chargers, Philip Rivers threw two touchdown passes for touchdowns and Quentin Jammer had an interception that was taken to pay-dirt. But that became meaningless as the Denver Broncos scored 35 unanswered points to defeat the San Diego Chargers 35-24 on Monday night. Rivers tossed four picks, while Peyton threw for over 300 yards and 3 three touchdowns (and 1 Int). Broncos cornerback Tony Carter had a 65 yard fumble return for a touchdown. Also, Denver safety Chris Harris had a 46 yard interception return for a touchdown. Denver wide receivers Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, and Brandon Stokley had a touchdown catch each. The Broncos become the first team to win by double-digits after trailing by 24 or more points. Denver also tied the record for largest road comeback, 24 points. Peyton Manning’s game winning drive was his 47th, which ties Dan Marino’s NFL record.
