The Chargers have a history of starting slow and then making a late season rally to swoop in and steal the AFC West title. This season is no different as the Chargers started the season with a losing record after this first six weeks of the season.
The Kansas City Chiefs took advantage of the swoon and raced to the top of the AFC West, but their lead is shaky at best and the Chargers have the Denver Broncos to thank for that.
The Denver Broncos annihilated the Chiefs last Sunday in game played in Denver. The Broncos offense was unstoppable behind the solid play by quarterback Kyle Orton. Orton tossed four touchdown passes and did not throw an interception as the team put up 49 points. The Broncos are not the only team that boasts a quality starting quarterback.
The Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers is having an amazing season and he is on pace to break Dan Marino’s single-season passing record of 5,084 yards set in 1984. Rivers first concern is beating the Broncos and advancing in the standings in the AFC West. Rivers should do fairly well against a Denver secondary that has allowed more 20-plus yard completions than any other AFC team and has only five interceptions.
In the past the Bolts have fared well against the Broncos as they are 6-1-1 against the spread in the last eight meetings. The Chargers had extra time to prepare for this game since last week was a bye week. Before the bye the Chargers were riding high on a two game winning streak and would like to see that continue at home under the bright lights of Monday Night Football.
The Chargers do have some problems on special teams and with turnovers. They turned the ball over 21 times and that has cost them some games they could have easily won. On special teams they have changed the long snapper four times and have five blocked punts on the year.
Will Denver be able to take advantage of the turnover prone Chargers? Will Philip Rivers torch a suspect secondary for the Broncos? Tune in on Monday Night Football and find out!
