Manning was 13-of-14 passing 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 San Diego defensive back Marcus Gilchrist to catch the ball, then got both feet down before tumbling out of the end zone.

Harris sealed the Broncos' 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.
