SAN DIEGO >> Peyton Manning threw three touchdown passes in the second half and Tony Carter and Chris Harris scored off turnovers by Philip Rivers as the Denver Broncos overcame a 24-0 halftime deficit to stun the San Diego Chargers 35-24 on Monday night.

Manning was 13 of 14 for 167 yards in the second half for the Broncos (3-3) who tied the Chargers atop the AFC West.

Rivers was intercepted four times — three in the fourth quarter — and lost two fumbles.

Manning's 21-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Stokley gave Denver its first lead of the game, 28-24 with 9:03 left. Stokley outleaped defensive back Marcus Gilchrist to catch the ball, and then got both feet down before tumbling out of the end zone.

Harris sealed the victory with a 46-yard interception return for a touchdown with 2:05 left. It was his second pick of the night.

Manning finished 24 of 30 for 309 yards with one interception.
