Payton Manning throws two touchdown passes but is intercepted late in the second quarter as Denver Broncos lead Jacksonville Jaguars by one point at half time.

Jacksonville Jaguars have fought back from 14-0 down to trail Denver Broncos by just one point at the half-time break in their NFL clash.

Peyton Manning threw two touchdown passes to help the Denver Broncos into a commanding advantage, but it was an interception from his pass that allowed Paul Posluszny to return from 59 yards.

The 37-year-old quarterback found Julius Thomas to go over from three yards with just over two minutes played, before finding Wes Welker for the second midway through the first quarter.

Josh Scobee got the Jags up and running with a 50-yard field goal early in the second quarter and cut the deficit even further with a kick from 30 yards before the end of the second quarter.

Posluszny's touchdown made the score 13-14 at half time.
