Denver, CO (.com) - Peyton Manning threw two touchdown passes and the Denver Broncos reached the AFC Championship Game for the first time in eight years after hanging on to beat the San Diego Chargers 24-17 on Sunday.

The Chargers cut a 17-0 deficit in the fourth quarter to seven points after two 16-yard touchdown catches by Keenan Allen and a successful onside kick that led to a field goal with 3:53 remaining.

But Manning completed two third-down passes to tight end Julius Thomas and the Broncos picked up one more first down on their last drive to earn revenge for a loss to the Chargers last month in their worst offensive performance of the season.

The Broncos will host Tom Brady and the New England Patriots next Sunday in their first AFC title game appearance since after the 2005 season.
