Both the Denver Broncos and the San Diego Chargers are hoping that they can get back to winning after last week. They both lost hard games in Week 5, with Denver losing to the Falcons 23-16, and the Chargers losing to the Raiders 34-31. For the Broncos, that was their first loss of the season, but the Chargers have lost three-straight.
Both teams have young quarterbacks at the head of their respective offense. The Broncos have had good luck from Trevor Siemian, with 824 yards and 6 touchdown passes, but they are behind the Chargers on average yards through the air on the season.
Philip Rivers is far better than Siemian, even though his team is not winning games. Rivers has gone 117 for 172 with 1469 yards and 11 touchdowns. Those numbers do not add up for a 1-4 team, so defensively, the Chargers are not holding teams at bay.
The Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak collapsed on the field following last week's loss, and it is not the first time. He collapsed in 2013 and was rushed to the hospital, which was exactly what happened last Sunday. He has since been on rest leaving the Broncos in an eerie situation, but hopefully they will be back at full strength for tonight.
The AFC West will be fun to watch this season, with the Raiders and Chiefs on the hunt for the playoffs too. The Broncos should win tonight's game rather easily tonight, unless the Chargers can change some things on defense.
