Chargers @ Broncos (Part One)
The Denver Broncos, fueled (hopefully) by Drew Lock, will rebound against the Chargers Sunday.
Los Angeles Chargers Philip Rivers looks like a shell of himself behind an injury-riddled offensive line, and after the Broncos defense struggled against Buffalo, they’ll be hungry to eat up the aging veteran.

This game could be dependent on one specific thing:
The Denver Broncos second-round rookie quarterback is getting more reps in practice this week, which could be a big sign that he will be the starting quarterback against the Chargers.
Nobody knows how that will turn out, but it is okay to predict (That’s what we’re doing, right?)
Well, I believe the Denver Broncos will come out with a victory at home against their division rival.

For the final time this season, the Denver Broncos will face off against the Los Angeles Chargers. Denver took the first game against the Chargers, using a strong first half and utilizing a tough defense en route to a 20-13 victory.
That game was on the road. Now the Chargers will be coming to Denver. Despite how tough of a season the Broncos have had, the Chargers are not any better even though they have one more win this season.
It is uncertain if Brandon Allen or Drew Lock will be the starting quarterback here. But I do not think that will matter. The offense will rely on the running game. And I see the defense taking care of business against a game Chargers team. Denver gets out of the AFC West cellar and sweeps the season series.
