Los Angeles Chargers returning man Andre Roberts was a yard deep in the goal zone when the Denver Broncos kicked it to him. He ended the game with a 101-yard kickoff return touchdown to give the Chargers a 27-6 lead early in the fourth quarter.
Roberts’ touchdown largely closed the door for the Broncos, who had just closed the deficit to 20-6 on a 23-yard field goal by Brandon McManus. An illegal formation penalty forced Denver to kick the field goal instead of going after a fourth-and-goal touchdown from the 1st and putting Roberts’ goal.
With the touchdown, Roberts becomes the only active player with three kickoff-return touchdowns and three punt-return touchdowns in his career and only the 11th player since the 1970 merger to have three of each.
