The Los Angeles Chargers and Denver Broncos are all set to square off on ESPN’s Monday Night Football. Take a look at three bold predictions for the game.
The 2017 NFL regular season is finally here, as the Los Angeles Chargers and Denver Broncos will be playing at Sports Authority Field on ESPN’s Monday Night Football. Newly-hires head coach Anthony Lynn will be looking for his first win in Los Angeles, but he has a tough task ahead of him in the Mile High city.
These two teams last met up on Oct. 30, 2016 with the Broncos getting an eight-point win over their division-rivals at home. Division games always bring out the best in everyone, especially the veterans. Look for Philip Rivers to have a huge game against the Broncos this weekend,
That being said, take a look at the Chargers and Broncos most recent matchups, courtesy of Pro Football Reference:
Oct. 30, 2016: Los Angeles Chargers (19) at Denver Broncos (27)
Oct. 13, 2016: Denver Broncos (13) at Los Angeles Chargers (21)
Jan. 3, 2016: Los Angeles Chargers (20) at Denver Broncos (27)
Dec. 6, 2015: Denver Broncos (17) at Los Angeles Chargers (3)
As you can seen above, even though the games between these franchises have been close, it’s been Denver with the upper hand. To put in perspective just how dominant the Broncos have been over the Chargers, Denver is 10-2 against the Bolts in their last 12 games — that’s just plain ridiculous.
Just knowing how much the Broncos have their their number since 2011, the Chargers should have a ton of motivation heading into their match-up with Denver this weekend. That being said, take a look at three bold predictions for the game.
