Thursday Night Football: Denver Broncos @ San Diego Chargers

New, comments

AFC West showdown between teams on opposite trajectories.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos are no longer undefeated, but still look among the best teams in the AFC with a 4-1 record. They could be welcoming back starting quarterback Trevor Siemian who missed the loss to the Atlanta Falcons last week, as well as starting right tackle Donald Stephenson and blocking tight end Virgil Green. The Broncos continue to miss pass rusher DeMarcus Ware but the Denver defence remains fearsome; led by Von Miller and a strong cornerback trio of Aqib TalibChris Harris Jr. and Bradley Roby.

Denver's pass defence will be tested by Philip Rivers and a San Diego Chargers team that is second in the league in scoring; at 30.4 points per game. The Chargers haven't been able to turn these points into wins though, blowing multiple fourth quarter leads on the way to a 1-4 record. San Diego will look to avoid mistakes and turnovers in this one, especially if they do build another second half lead. Mike McCoy's future could depend on it.
