The Los Angeles Chargers are looking for their seventh win in a row.
The last time they faced the Denver Broncos, they handed them their first shutout loss in 25 years. The Broncos (3-6) will come into this game struggling nearly as much as they were last year, and the Chargers should be considered heavy favorites as a result.
Joey Bosa, who has missed the entire season to this point while resting a foot injury, will be active for the first time all season. However, expect him to see limited reps in this game.
Here are the players who will be inactive for the Bolts on Sunday:
Trevor Williams, Detrez Newsome, Chris Landrum, Cole Toner, Trent Scott, Forrest Lamp and Justin Jones. While Bosa returns to action, Lamp continues to be a disappointment due to injuries.
The Broncos are a team in turmoil and their coach, Vance Joseph, is squarely on the hot seat. However, it is a division rivalry and those victories don’t ever come easily.
