The Broncos are fresh off a tough loss to our favorite Atlanta Falcons, which has to have them smarting. With Trevor Siemian expected back in the lineup, an easy matchup against the San Diego Chargers looming, and the need to hold off the Oakland Raiders in the AFC West, they’re not going to lack for motivation.
The Chargers, who the Falcons will face soon enough, are not as lousy as their 1-4 record would indicate. They are hopelessly inept and injured defensively, which limits their upside, but they’re capable of getting things done on offense and will be able to play spoiler for many teams the rest of the way, including the Falcons.
Expect this one to be one-sided, though, with Denver winning pretty easily. Here’s what you need to know for the game.
