The 3-6 Denver Broncos are coming off of their bye as a beaten, battered and torn squad searching for answers to what has been a very frustrating season to date. Their first challenge? Hitting the highway to Carson, CA to take on a division rival in the Los Angeles Chargers (and yes, I still have to delete “San Diego” every time).
While it may be a road contest, the atmosphere at the StubHub Center is typically favored to the road team rather than its inhabitants. The Broncos have a great fanbase that travels very well, so I would expect a pseudo-home field advantage and a sea of orange jerseys in SoCal.
However, the inhabitants have been spectacular in their own hostile environment, going 7-1 over their last 8 games in the City of Angels. The Chargers have been spectacular this season, showcasing a high-octane offense capable of putting up video game statistics with a defense that is only going to get better with the return of a certain pass rusher known to give the Broncos fits along the offensive line.
Today I’m going to highlight 10 Chargers players the Broncos have to reckon with, starting with the man running the show.
