SAN DIEGO -- What’s the best way for a road team to quiet the home crowd in a big game? Yep, a special teams touchdown.
Denver second-year receiver Eddie Royal shut up the San Diego crowd with a 93-yard touchdown on a kickoff. The Chargers had just scored a field goal.
Royal ripped right through San Diego’s coverage unit and bolted for the score. After Denver’s defense was beat up on the previous drive, this was a big play for Denver.
