Trevor Siemian scores 3 total touchdowns for Broncos in win

Jacksonville Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon right is stopped by Denver Broncos defensive end Jared Crick during the first half of an NFL football game in Jacksonville Fla. Crick is the latest victim of the Bro

Trevor Siemian completed 17-of-28 passes for 219 yards and two passing touchdowns in a 24-21 win over the Chargers in Week 1, rushing for 19 yards and one score.

Koo nailed it - but Joseph called timeout just before he kicked.

Harris got the start only because Jared Crick and Zach Kerr were out with injuries.

The Broncos almost fumbled the win, as they squandered a 17-point lead entering the fourth quarter with Los Angeles outscoring Denver in the final period, 14-0.

Denver took a 24-7 lead into the fourth quarter in this opener and the Broncos were feeling pretty good.

Both teams' head coaches were making their debuts, and the Chargers, formerly of San Diego, were playing their first regular-season game since relocating to Los Angeles in the offseason. After the Broncos' forced a turnover, the defense continued to terrorize Rivers as Shaq Barrett recorded his first sack of the 2017 season.

On the ground, Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 104 yards in 24 carries while Dak Prescott added 24 yards in three carries.

Peterson was an afterthought once the Saints fell behind.

"Awesome", Joseph said. "All three guys caught balls for (nearly) 100 yards". Coby Fleener caught the only touchdown toss, after the two-minute warning. Siemian found Demaryius Thomas to help the move the Broncos down the field and set up first-and-goal.

The dramatic, chaotic three-hour affair between division rivals also featured Mike McCoy roaming the sideline for the team that built a huge lead - only to see it crumble in the fourth quarter.

There wasn't much that Seattle's offensive line dealt with well in the loss to the Packers. Denver has now won six consecutive season openers, the longest active streak in the league. Meanwhile, the Bolts' defense is sneakily good and are going against a not-so-good offense.

The Broncos finally had something going on the next drive, possessing the ball in the red zone with under five minutes to go.

The difference this year is they had Beast Mode.

With two minutes left, Rivers marched the Chargers into field goal position with the hopes of overtime. The unit did just that while largely putting the clamps on Gordon and the Chargers' run game, which managed only 37 yards on 14 carries in the first half after the big run to open the game.

The Broncos went on to win, 24-21.

But the contest was a far bigger headache than what might have been expected, starting as the third quarter drew to a close.

So, of course, running back Jamaal Charles promptly fumbled, once again putting the Chargers in easy striking distance. "But we'll know later (Tuesday) and (Wednesday)".

Arians said Johnson is seeking a second opinion. But with players like DeMarcus Ware, T.J.

While he didn't give a timetable for Johnson, Arians said Logan is expected to be out eight to 12 weeks.

Kade Dohmen: "I think the Chargers defense makes its name known because of this game".
