The Denver Broncos are not showing much in their season finale against the Los Angeles Chargers. Then again, neither is Phillip Rivers and company.
The Denver Broncos are closing out their 2018 season against the Los Angeles Chargers. They are hoping to play spoiler and prevent the Chargers from locking up the division and home field advantage.
For what it is worth, they are doing their job. Isaac Yiadom and Will Parks each recorded interceptions. But they are not getting anything done on offense themselves. It is almost like they are going backwards instead of forwards.
Oh wait, that’s exactly what they did in the second quarter. A long Devontae Booker touchdown run was called back because Garett Bolles was called for holding. Then on the next play, Bolles was once again called for holding.
Facing a first and 30, what does Vance Joseph call for? A backwards pass to Royce Freeman. Sure enough, Freeman couldn’t hold on and the Chargers scooped it up and returned it for the touchdown.
That has been the only score of the game to this point. It has just been that kind of season for the Denver Broncos. Horrible coaching, untimely penalties, unfortunate injuries, it all has just piled on for this team.
Do the Denver Broncos still have a shot to at least end their season with a win? With the way they are playing, not a chance. But then again, anything can happen. If there is anything they can do, they can limit the dumb penalties and actually be efficient on offense.
They were having a promising drive with River Cracraft catching a big pass. But Case Keenum threw an interception. Luckily, the Chargers gave it right back. Denver was able to get some points on the board before halftime with a Brandon McManus field goal.
The Denver Broncos will get the football to start the second half. My only wish is that the Broncos go out fighting.
