The Denver Broncos moved to 8-1 on the year after dispatching the San Diego Chargers, 28-20, on Sunday in Qualcomm Stadium. Not only was this a huge victory for interim coach Jack Del Rio, who is filling in for John Fox as he recovers from heart surgery, but it served as a milestone for owner Pat Bowlen.

It was Bowlen’s 300th win as owner of the Mile High franchise. He reached that number in 30 years as an owner – the fewest necessary to hit 300.

In the locker room after the win, Del Rio gave Bowlen a game ball, and also announced another for Fox.

Peyton Manning, meanwhile, was caught with a very devilish look on his face in the background.
