AFC West Clash- Chargers vs Broncos
San Diego will seek for revenge in Denver as they were humiliated the last time they face the Broncos on Monday Night; these two AFC West rivals clash on Sunday 4:25 PM ET at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
In that game, the Broncos from a 24 point deficit to beat the Chargers 35-24; it was one of the most outstanding’s comebacks in recent history.
San Diego has lost four of the last five games, including a late meltdown against the Bucs last week. “The big negative plays, the turnovers are killing us,” coach Turner said. “Our biggest thing is we need to go put four quarters together, play at a high level, take care of the ball and not give up. If a team’s going to make plays on you, make them earn it. Don’t give up easy plays. It’s a challenge for us coming into Denver”.
The Chargers know how good the Broncos have become since the last time they met. “Denver’s playing amazing right now,” Chargers safety Eric Weddle said. “All three phases are playing well off of each other, and it shows on the tape”.
Part of the Broncos’ success has to be with the protection Peyton Manning is getting from his young o-line. “They have done a great job, and certainly every quarterback appreciates it when you don’t get sacked,” he said.
The Broncos are -8.5 favorites against an unstable Chargers team. San Diego is 7-11-4 ATS in its last 22 games when playing on the road against Denver
