With how the Chargers always manage to play the Broncos tough, I do not see this being a walk in the park for the Broncos. Then again, this is an AFC West showdown.

Brock Osweiler will be getting his third start of his career and has been impressive. Can he lead the Broncos to a third straight win and give the Broncos their fourth straight 10 win season? It is possible.

I think this game will come down to both team’s offense. Rivers is going to need the help of his running game and the Broncos will need Osweiler to keep up his performance.

For some bold predictions, I think this game where Rivers gets sacked six times and tosses a couple of interceptions. The Broncos might struggle a bit in the early going, but Osweiler will do enough to keep the Broncos in the game.

Next: Broncos will soon have no choice but to pay Osweiler

Anderson and Hillman will combine for around 250 yards rushing on the day and two touchdowns. Osweiler will hover around 250 passing and one touchdown. And I think Omar Bolden returns a kick for a touchdown.

The Broncos get one step closer to a fifth straight AFC West title when all is said and done on Sunday.
