The Denver Broncos will travel to San Diego on Sunday to face the Chargers as they look to close the gap on the Kansas City Chiefs at the top of the AFC West division. Peyton Manning and co. had a Bye Week last week and they will be rested and fired up to go as they make a second season push to overturn the Chiefs and claim the division title. Tonight's big game starts at 4.25 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Broncos come into this game with a record of 7-1 and their only defeat so far coming against the Indianapolis Colts.
Denver have one of the best offenses in NFL history, and are ranked number one in the league this season in total points scored per game (42.9 points), total yards gained per game (466.4 yards), and pass offense (358.5 yards per game).
Manning has been phenomenal, and defenses have just had no answer to him. He is 237 of 333 for 2,919 yards and an astonishing 29 touchdowns.
He has a wide range of options on how to dissect opposition offenses, and receivers Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Wes Welker, and Julius Thomas have all be amazingly active, scoring 26 touchdowns between them, with D.Thomas and Decker both going for almost 700 yards each.
The Chargers may find the challenge is just too much for them tonight. They come into this game 3rd in the AFC West and with a .500 record of 4-4. They lost last week against the Washington Redskins 24-30, and even though they will want to combat Manning with an in-your-face defense, and take advantage of a less than solid Broncos defense, they may just not have what it takes to bring down the Broncos steamroller.
