The Denver Broncos not only clinched a playoff berth with their win on Monday night, but they also may have secured home field advantage for the playoffs.
Still, taking nothing for granted, a win will secure that fate as they welcome in the San Diego Chargers on Sunday afternoon.
The Chargers may be playing their last game under the term “San Diego” as they have had an abysmal season and have the chance of moving to LA next season.
It’s been a season to forget for the San Diego Chargers.
With just 4 wins, the Chargers may be on their way out of San Diego as the rumors continue to swirl around them moving to LA. Still, San Diego will look to finish the season strong for their fans along with potentially really ruining the Broncos first round bye.
The offensive struggles have been season long, and QB Philip Rivers has been so inconsistent at times. Rivers threw for 19 incompletions on Sunday as he’s thrown crazy amounts of pass attempts per game this season.
The Chargers have not had any type of running game this season, which has caused Rivers to be forced into throwing a lot of passes per game.
Things won’t be easy for this sketchy offense as Orlando Franklin and Trevor Robinson both are out with concussions. The offensive line just got even more thin with those two key parts out.
Sports Authority Field may still be rocking after Monday nights win.
The Broncos trailed for a majority of the game and even shanked a game winning field goal as time expired. They managed to rally together and in OT started off with a field goal and saw AJ McCarron fumble to end the game.
Even though Peyton Manning will be active come Sunday, the Broncos are still going with QB Brock Osweiler. The backup QB threw for 277 yards and added a touchdown in the win over Cincinnati.
The Denver defense has been the main reason for success this season. Denver is the only team that has not allowed more than 200 passing yards per game from the opposition.
