Mile High Matchup: Chargers-Broncos
Question of the Day
It seems inevitable that Peyton Manning will shatter the 50-touchdown passing mark set by Tom Brady in 2007. He might even do it Thursday night.
Sure, he needs five to tie, six to break. Never bet against Manning when it comes to such records.
Which also means not to bet against Manning and his Broncos when they face the Chargers in the final Thursday nighter of the season. Denver (No. 2 in the AP Pro 32) is a 10-point favorite over San Diego (No. 18, AP Pro32).
But don’t forget that Philip Rivers is having a superb season for the Chargers, too. And San Diego (6-7) desperately needs to win out for any chance of making the playoffs, which Denver already has reached.
Could be quite a shootout.
“In my mind it’s a playoff scenario for us,” Chargers outside linebacker Jarret Johnson said. “I can’t wait. It’s going to be a great challenge. As a competitor and an athlete in the NFL, these are the opportunities you want. We worked ourselves into a hole and we have to depend on other people, but the only thing we’re focusing on is what we can control, and right now that’s Denver.”
They’ll need to control Manning and an offense that has scored a stunning 515 points in 13 games. Won’t happen.
