Two teams hoping to continue on an upward climb in the AFC West conclude the NFL action for Week 11 when the San Diego Chargers host their division rival Denver Broncos on Monday night.
For the fourth consecutive season, the Chargers are attempting to rebound from having a losing record during the first six games of the season to win their division. San Diego has won their last two contests to get to 4-5 and just one game out of first place.
It seems as though Philip Rivers will have both Legedu Naanee and Malcolm Floyd to throw the ball to in the game, but the status of all-world tight end Antonio Gates is still very doubtful. Gates missed the Chargers last game two weeks ago, a victory at Houston, with a torn plantar fascia in his right foot.
Despite these injuries, Rivers keeps on rolling along, throwing for 2,944 yards in just nine games. He’s still on pace to break Dan Marino’s 1984 league record for passing yards (5,084), and the Chargers rank first in the league total yards and passing yards.
The Denver defense also needs to be mindful of stopping the Chargers on third down, where they rank fourth in the league.
Meanwhile, the San Diego defense is also performing well statistically, rating second best in total yards allowed per contest at 274.7 per contest, as well as third best against the pass and fourth best against the run.
Special teams has been an Achilles heel all season for the Chargers, but good news is it looks as though placekicker Nate Kaeding is set to return after missing the last three games with a groin injury.
The Broncos meantime, are coming off their most impressive performance of the season, blasting the rival Kansas City Chiefs 49-29 on Sunday in Denver. The Broncos lead the all-time series with the Chargers 54-45-1, with the two teams splitting the two contests last season and the road team winning each time. Denver’s 34-23 road win last year at Qualcomm Stadium, also a Monday Night Football game, snapped a three-game losing streak in San Diego.
While the Chargers passing game gains all of the praise nationally, the Broncos air attack isn’t too shabby, ranking second in the entire league at 296.6 yards per contest. QB Kyle Orton is enjoying an all-star season, and in last Sunday’s win over the Chiefs he threw for four touchdowns and no interceptions, something done only nine other times in franchise history.
Orton has established a franchise mark that even John Elway doesn’t own – the most passing yards through eight games in club history, surpassing Brian Griese’s mark set in 2000.
The Broncos receiving corps may not be highly regarded around the league until you look at the numbers. The trio of Brandon Lloyd (48), Jabar Gaffney (48), and Eddie Royal (43) give the Broncos the only team with at least three players to have registered 40 or more catches so far this season. Royal will hope to duplicate his performance from a season ago on Monday night when he became just the second Denver player and 11th NFL player to score a punt return touchdown and receiving touchdown in the same game.
Since Denver still remains a one trick pony, I have to go with the resurging Chargers at home in this one.
