DenverSportsOmelettelogo

It took five weeks, but Vic Fangio has finally earned his first win as the Broncos’ head coach.

Denver traveled west to Los Angeles — well, technically Carson, Calif. — and defeated the Chargers, 20-13, to win its first game of the season.

It also ended a 308-day drought since the last time the Broncos won a regular-season game, a 24-10 victory over the Bengals on the road on Dec. 2, 2018.

Here’s what you may have missed from Sunday’s game:
