Pregame pushing and shoving

Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson

SAN DIEGO -- Things got chippy during the pregame warm-ups.

There was some pushing and shoving between the two teams near the goal-line, but the two sides were separated by officials without an apparent incident.

Among the players who appeared most involved where San Diego linebackers Shaun Phillips and Shawne Merriman and Denver defensive lineman Kenny Peterson and linebacker Darrell Reid.

Denver was involved in a similar pregame scrum at Oakland in Week 3.
