Predicting Denver Broncos at Chargers and NFL Pick ‘Em
The Predominantly Orange staff takes a crack at predicting the outcome of the Denver Broncos at Los Angeles Chargers and NFL Pick ‘Em for week 5.
The Denver Broncos have yet to find their identity as a professional football team. A quarter through the 2019 NFL season, they still have not secured their first victory.
Sunday’s loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars was their fourth loss of the season and second game that the Broncos lost by two points. Despite left tackle Garett Bolles improving (no penalties), plenty of other things have gone wrong for the team, obviously.
Second-year outside linebacker Bradley Chubb suffered a partially torn ACL in the loss to the Jaguars. He was able to finish the game, but will miss the remainder of the season.
It is extremely disappointing to see the Denver Broncos on this losing streak. After another head coaching change, many people expected an improvement. I guess this is just something that is going to happen through this transition.
If the season ended today, the Denver Broncos would own the third overall pick. They would have a chance to draft a quality player to improve their team. Obviously, with twelve games left, there is still time to turn things around. There have been plenty of bright spots as well.
The Broncos travel to Los Angeles to take on a division opponent this week in the Chargers. The Chargers have had their fair share of bad things happen to them this season, specifically in regards to injuries. Will that make an impact in this divisional game? We’ll see.
Now, without further ado, here are our picks for that game, as well as the other matchups across the NFL in our Pick ‘Em.
