Peyton Manning throws three touchdowns as the Denver Broncos take a 21-6 lead into half time of their NFL clash with the San Diego Chargers.

Demaryius Thomas has combined with Peyton Manning for two touchdowns in the first half tonight, helping the Denver Broncos build a 21-6 lead over the San Diego Chargers at the interval.

Denver wasted little time in breaking the deadlock in their search for a third away win of the season, as Manning set Julius Thomas free for a 74-yard touchdown less than six minutes into the first quarter.

San Diego offered some response as Nick Novak made good on two field goals early in the second quarter, but that show of resistance from the hosts proved to be brief.

From midway through the second quarter Manning took control, picking out Thomas in the end zone after another sustained drive down the field, covering 80 yards in just seven plays.

Thomas made Denver's dominance tell on the scoreboard with his second score in the last few seconds of the first half, breaking through a struggling Chargers defence to put the Broncos in complete control at Qualcomm Stadium.
