The last time the Chargers had a return for a touchdown was a 65-yard punt return for a score by Micheal Spurlock in a December 2012 game against the New York Jets.

Big play by Travis Benjamin on 65-yard punt return for a TD and Chargers have their first lead of the season in the opening quarter, a 7-0 advantage over the Broncos. Chargers have been outscored 50-14 in the first quarter so far this season.

Chargers give the ball four straight times to Melvin Gordon and can't get in from a yard out, turning the ball over on downs and wasting a turnover created by the defense. Bolts have to be more creative on offense in that situation.

Chargers inactives: WR Dontrelle Inman, TE Sean Culkin, QB Cardale Jones, RT Joe Barksdale, DT Corey Liuget, RB Branden Oliver, T Tyler Marz.
