Photos: Chargers dominate Broncos to bolster playoff hopes

The Chargers scored an important win Sunday at SoFi Stadium, as quarterback Justin Herbert led them to a 34-13 victory over the Denver Broncos. The win puts the Chargers firmly in control of their fate in the playoff – if they win next week against the Las Vegas Raiders, they snatch a post-season berth.

Veteran Los Angeles Times photographers Gina Verazzi and Robert Gauthier captured many of the game’s biggest moments from their sideshows on Sunday. Here are some of their best pictures of the game.
