The San Diego Chargers are in the midst of a brutally painful season. Whether it be mounting injuries, or finding new, painful ways to lose, the Chargers are on the brink of a wasted season. This week doesn’t seem like the week they’ll right the ship, as a Broncos team coming off their first loss of the season visits San Diego for a Thursday Night Football matchup.
The Broncos lost their first game of the season last week when its struggling offense failed to keep up with the high-flying Atlanta Falcons. Even though Denver was able to hold Julio Jones to just 29 receiving yards, just one week after he racked up 300 against the Carolina Panthers, they were not able to contain Atlanta’s running backs. Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman combined for 286 total yards and two touchdowns to push Atlanta to a 23-16 win.
The Chargers have fallen to 1-4 with their lone win coming over the Jaguars back in Week 2. To make the losses even more painful, San Diego has led in the second half of every game they’ve lost, including blowing a 17 point lead over Kansas City, and a 13 point lead over New Orleans. disappearing acts from 17- and 13-point fourth-quarter advantages against Kansas City and New Orleans, respectively.
If San Diego has any chance of saving their season, they’ll need to pull out a victory against their AFC West rivals. With San Diego in desperation mode and the defending-champion Broncos coming off their first loss of the season, looks for tonight’s game to be highly contested!
