After being thoroughly manhandled in Green Bay last week, the Broncos return to Sports Authority Field at Mile High to face the division leading San Diego Chargers. The 3-1 Chargers are looking for their first road win on their second road trip of the 2011 season. The Broncos, who have three losses and one win this season, look to get their second straight home win. Entering the bye week would be much more enjoyable for the fans and the players if the Broncos could somehow find a way to win this contest.
The Broncos lead the all-time series against the Chargers 54-47-1, including a 35-14-1 mark at home. Denver is looking for its 400th regular-eason victory Sunday, entering the contest with 399-367-10 (.521) all-time record.
For those individuals who are attending the Bronco/Charger matchup, I’ve listed information below that is pertinent to this afternoon’s game.
The game will be broadcast on CBS (Marv Albert: play-by-play; Rich Gannon: color commentary) and 850 KOA Radio (Dave Logan: play-by-play; Brian Griese: color commentary; Andy Lihahl: sideline reports)
Complimentary Broncos GameDay Magazines will be given to the first 45,000 fans upon entering the stadium.
