With 5:02 left in the third quarter Monday night, Philip Rivers threw incomplete to Dante Rosario on second and eight. Maybe this drive would stall, but the Chargers held a 24-7 lead and the time to pull together a comeback appeared to be running out on the Broncos. Denver held just a 0.03 win probability, after all.
The Chargers (3-3) conducted their only practice this week on Wednesday. In general, the mood was surprisingly upbeat, despite the fact that the team is coming off a historic loss on Monday Night Football that saw the Broncos (3-3) overcome a 24-0 halftime deficit to win 35-24.
