The Broncos and Chargers clash for the second time this season.
The Denver Broncos are prepared for their third division game of the year. Denver is 2-0 in AFC West games this season.
Los Angeles will be playing their fourth AFC West game of the year. At 1-2 in division play, the Chargers are in a must win division game this week
The last time the Broncos and Chargers faced off was week one. The Broncos got the season opening win 24-21 in Denver. Expect this game to be a hard fought AFC West game this week.
The Denver Broncos are coming off a terrible home loss against the depleted New York Giants. The Broncos lost at home, 23-10.
Trevor Siemian was 29 of 50 for 376 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the surprising home loss.
Siemian play so poorly, the Broncos inserted former starter Brock Osweiler into the lineup. Osweiler was 2 of 4 for 18 yards. Denver had 412 total yards of offense, but three costly turnovers killed Denver.
The turnovers didn’t help, and neither did the usually solid Broncos rushing attack. Denver ran the ball just 17 times, for 46 yards and no touchdowns. The New York defense held Denver to 2.7 yards per carry.
If Denver can’t establish the run game early, this will play in favor for the Chargers this week.
The Broncos defense only allowed 266 total yards of offense from New York, but the turnovers are what hurt Denver. The run defense looked tired throughout the game. Giants running back Orleans Darkwa ran for 117 yards in the win.
The secondary played well, limiting the Giants Eli Manning. He was 11 of 19 for 128 yards and one touchdown.
This week the Broncos defense needs to work on stopping the run. Running back Melvin Gordon has been getting better week to week for Los Angeles. If Denver can limit Gordon, the Broncos will be in a good position to win.
Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers have won two in a row. Los Angeles last played the Raiders in Oakland and squeezed out a win, 17-16. The Chargers scored 10 points in the fourth quarter, leading to the comeback victory.
Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers willed his team to victory again last week. Rivers was 25 of 36 for 268 yards one touchdown and no interceptions. Unknown receiver Henry Hunt was good with five catches for 90 yards in the win.
Melvin Gordon also played well for the Chargers offense. He had 25 carries for 83 yards and one touchdown on the ground. Gordon also had 9 receptions for 67 yards and one touchdown receiving.
If the Chargers want to get it done at home, Gordon must get touches early and often this week.
On defense, the Chargers allowed 274 yards on the road against Oakland. Derek Carr was back from injury and threw two interceptions.
This week look for the underrated Chargers secondary to create turnovers. The Broncos are struggling at quarterback right now.
