The Denver Broncos held a 14-0 lead over the San Diego Chargers in the final minute of the first half during Sunday's playoff game. Denver is also set to receive the kickoff to start the second half.

With the Broncos facing a 3rd-and-goal from the 4-yard line, the Chargers desperately needed some kind of stop. They got one, thanks to a heads-up play by linebacker Donald Butler.

Broncos receiver Eric Decker couldn't haul in quarterback Peyton Manning's throw, and Butler made a great play after the ball went up in the air. Not only did he catch the ball, but he also did a great job of getting two feet down. 

The interception kept it a two-possession game going into halftime.
