Monday night was epic: The Chargers blew a 24-0 halftime lead and lost 35-24 to Peyton Manning and the AFC West-rival Denver Broncos.
It tied for the fourth-biggest comeback in NFL regular-season history.
A week earlier, San Diego blew a 10-point third-quarter lead in losing 31-24 at New Orleans. They let the Saints score the final 17 points and then watched as the Broncos scored the final 35 points Monday night.
The big culprit was Philip Rivers, who set career highs with four interceptions and six turnovers overall.
But the defense had zero sacks and just one hit against the 36-year-old Manning, who's regaining his form after missing last season.
