The LA Chargers host the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football in Week 6 and may not have as tough of a challenge as the team was expecting before the year. Denver has played pretty poorly to start the 2022 season and does not look like the Super Bowl contender that they were made out to be.
That being said, there is obviously still talent on the roster and they are a divisional opponent, so they cannot be taken lightly. The Chargers have to bring their A-game in this game to get the victory, regardless of how bad the Broncos have looked.
A big part of any winning game plan is attacking certain areas of the opponent to expose matchups in which you have the advantage in. If the Chargers are going to win this game, there are certain players in particular that the team needs to expose.
Here are the 3 Broncos that the Chargers can expose to win on Monday Night Football:
1. Calvin Anderson and the banged-up offensive line
This might not be one player but the Chargers are heading into arguably the easiest tackle matchup that they have had all season. After playing one of the best offensive lines in Cleveland, the Chargers will have a much more favorable matchup at home against Denver.
Denver lost starting left tackle Garrett Bolles and is dealing with other injuries on the offensive line as well. Dalton Risner, Quinn Meinerz and Billy Turner were all listed on Thursday's injury report, only making matter worse for the Broncos.
The pass rush has not been as good with Joey Bosa out and we are due for a big Khalil Mack game. With a very favorable matchup at left tackle, and not a lot of help around it, Mack and the Chargers should be able to make Russell Wilson's night a long one.
