Denver Broncos versus the San Diego Chargers will be an exciting Monday Night Football game that you will not want to miss. Broncos QB Peyton Manning will face off against Chargers QB Philip Rivers, a matchup that’s sure to produce a lot of points and big plays.
These two quarterbacks have met six times since 2005 and it seems that the Chargers have Manning’s number; he’s 1-5 versus San Diego during that time. The Broncos and the Chargers both have a major task they must accomplish in order to come out on top.
The Chargers must keep Manning from throwing at will and force him to make mistakes. Manning doesn’t make many mistakes the game usually runs smoothly and in his favor when he hasa lot of time to throw. Manning has only thrown three interceptions and all came in one quarter versus the Atlanta Falcons, so he hasn’t made many mistakes this year. The Chargers must force a couple of turnovers if they want this game to end with a victory. If they can cover Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker and keep them to an average game at best then they may be able to slow Manning down.
The Broncos have to contain Chargers RB Ryan Matthews, who will be trying to prove that he is an elite NFL running back. He will be running hard and protecting the football the best he can. Matthews was moved down to the No. 2 back on the Chargers’ depth chart earlier in the year because of fumble issues, but he is very talented and can produce a ton of total yardage if the Broncos are not careful.
The Broncos made a change at middle linebacker by naming Keith Brooking the starter instead of Joe Mays. This change will be challenged by Matthews early and often.
We will see which team can handle the challenge tonight.
Prediction: Broncos win 31-24.
