The San Diego Chargers have defied all the odds. Nobody outside of San Diego believed in the Chargers and they are still standing and will travel out to Denver this week to face the Broncos.

We are very familiar with Peyton Manning and the Broncos. Head Coach Mike McCoy knows the Broncos very well. He helped build the offense out there and he knows how to slow it down. He will send over some tips over to John Pagano and figure out a game plan to keep Peyton Manning on the sideline.

They are a dangerous group of players out in Denver. We all know about Peyton Manning and that offense. Wes Welker will be on the field this time around. He was unavailable to play the last time we played against them. Demayrius Thomas is a very good receiver and has beaten us in the past. Julius Thomas has gotten us also. Eric Decker. There is a lot to deal with on that offense, so the defense better be prepared to make some plays.

Peyton will try to force some footballs though and the defense better be prepared to make a play on that football when they get their hands on it. Make that big interception.

The Denver defense will be without Von Miller and that should be huge for our offense. Hopefully Ryan Mathews is available and healthy for the game, because he will be needed to milk that clock and score those touchdowns. Miller is the best defensive player on the Broncos and they will definitely miss his presence on the field.

With all the former Chargers skipping town to Denver (Shaun Phillips, Louis Vasquez, Quentin Jammer), we will have them wishing that they found a way to stay in San Diego after we get that win in Denver.

    That is all very likely. Denver’s defense has been called suspect all season. Now they lose Von Miller. While the Chargers get a healthy Butler, Johnson, an Ingram back. Not to mention Shareece Wright is learning the art of “Pick Magnet”, Addae, an Marshal coverage skills have improved. Then the Chargers are getting pressure with “four” rushers. I expect the Chargers to keep Peyton on the sideline, and make this team one dimensional again.

      I agree 100%

    Stick to the game plan. Put pressure on Manning. Keep him off the field with long drives.

    We played them close the first time, but we could not finish drives or convert in the redzone. We settled for 3 FG tries and missed one. Denver on the other hand converted all 4 of their redzone trips. Redzone performance was the difference in the first game.

    When we played them in Dever we just beat them. Defense held Denver to 2 for 9 on 3rd down. Offense held the ball for 38 minutes.

    It should be a good game, but I think the Chargers miracle ride will continue.
