SAN DIEGO — Knowshon Moreno rushed for a 4-yard score on the Broncos' opening drive, and Malcom Floyd caught a 6-yard TD pass from Philip Rivers to leave the San Diego Chargers tied with Denver at 7-7 through one quarter on Monday night.

Kyle Orton went 7 for 9 for 78 yards in the opening period of a meeting between sub-.500 AFC West rivals who still have a chance to take control of a lackluster division race.

Although most expected a four-quarter aerial show in a meeting of the NFL's most prolific passers entering this weekend's games, Chargers punter Mike Scifres had more yards passing than Rivers in the first quarter after an exceptional fake punt that eventually led to Floyd's tying score.
