The San Diego Chargers have earned the right to go to Denver with a 27-10 victory of the Bengals in Cincinnati. San Diego, a team that’s gotten hot late, looks to be one of the few AFC teams that might have a chance to upend the Broncos on their home turf.
Why, because they’ve done it before and it looks like the Cargers are getting hot at the right time. The San Diego defense forced three turnovers against the Bengals, including two interceptions, and limited the ground game to 113 yards. San Diego has now won five in a row. The Broncos are winners of four out of their last five games. The only loss? To the San Diego Chargers.
If Philip Rivers stays hot and the San Diego defense remains as stifling as they have been over the last month, the Denver Broncos will have to have their best game to win. It doesn’t take much to look and remember the shocking upset by Baltimore last season. This Chargers vs Broncos matchup is shaping up as a quite a puzzle, one that won’t have all the pieces in place until the teams hit the field.Eric Drouant
