Broncos @ Chargers

Recommended Posts



Including postseason, the Broncos have won 11 of their last 14 meetings with the Chargers, after the Chargers had won nine of the previous 11. In the teams' most recent meeting, Week 7 of last season, the Chargers won 21-0, their first shutout of Denver since 1978.

Denver has lost seven straight road games against divisional opponents, the third-longest active streak in the NFL behind Cleveland (nine) and Chicago (eight). Prior to that streak, the Broncos had won an NFL-record 15 straight divisional road games.

After a 1-2 start, the Chargers have won six straight games, the team's longest win streak since a seven-game run to end the 2009 season. The Chargers have also held five straight opponents to fewer than 20 points, one shy of the longest streak in franchise history (six, done three times: 1961, 1965 and 2007).

The Broncos (5.16) and Chargers (5.06) are two of the four teams in the NFL averaging at least 5.00 yards per carry this season. Denver has never averaged 5.00+ yards per carry in a season, whereas the Chargers have done so twice: 1963 (5.56) and 2003 (5.15).

Last week, Case Keenum had his first game without an interception this year, but he tied a season high with 16 incompletions as the Broncos lost at home to Houston, 19-17. Of Keenum's 2400 passing yards this season, 1777 have come with his team trailing, second most in the NFL behind Eli Manning's 2113.

Philip Rivers has tossed at least two touchdown passes and no more than one interception in all nine games this season. The only other quarterbacks in NFL history to start a season with streaks that long were Aaron Rodgers in 2011 (13 straight) and Tom Brady in 2015 (nine straight).
