A hard count from Siemian enticed Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa to jump offside and give the Broncos a free play. Siemian bought time and lofted a pass into the back of the end zone to Fowler to give Denver the lead.
The connecting with Fowler capped a 13-play, 70-yard drive for the Broncos. Siemian and Fowler also connected earlier on the drive to convert a 3rd-and-7 with a 10-yard gain. It was one of only two third downs faced on the drive by the Broncos.
Denver has converted four of five third downs in the first quarter offensively.
