  • Chargers begin LA era against Broncos

But the Broncos didn't do themselves any favors with drives down the stretch ending like this: Interception (bounced off a defender's foot), fumble (Jamaal Charles), missed field goal (Brandon McManus, who just signed a new deal) and a punt. It took 70 yards, 13 plays and 6:05 of game time, as the home team took the early 7-0 lead over the Chargers. Two turnovers led to a pair of Chargers touchdowns in the fourth quarter as they sliced the lead to 24-21 with 7 minutes remaining. The members of Chargers Nation were all rooting for the same team, but they are certainly not grieving in the same ways.

"There are days you're with the ones, days your with the twos, and he did a good job of leading in every situation", McCoy said. But in this case, it all worked out well for Denver, and prevented what would've been a brutal loss after having a 17-point lead in the fourth quarter. I had two touchdowns in my career coming into the game so it feels good.

"I won't say exactly what he said, but Peyton threw a zinger at Trevor, and it was incredible to hear how Trevor spit one back in Peyton's face".

"I've moved on", said John Wall, who was sharing a McGregor's table with fellow 20-year season ticket-holder Jim Munson.

He certainly could've done a better job closing out the night for the Broncos, but Siemian finished with a 94.1 passer rating and that's a number Denver can be happy with. He closed out the Broncos' fourth possession with a 1-yard scoring jaunt around Chargers star defensive end Joey Bosa. He did, though, prove to be a valuable weapon in the passing game, catching five balls for 25-yards and a touchdown. "It didn't matter how good or how bad there were, they were still our Chargers". "We'll take it however we can get it". "They both may play". "I want them to win and I want them to do well, but I'm feeling blah about the whole thing".


Shelby Harris got a hand on Younghoe Koo's 44-yard game-tying field goal try with a second left and the Denver Broncos began the Vance Joseph era with a 24-21 win over the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday night.

Matt Bryant kicked three field goals, with Devonta Freeman also running in a five-yard score for the visitors, while touchdowns from Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen and a Connor Barth field goal were in vain for the Bears.

MINNEAPOLIS - Sam Bradford started his second season with Minnesota in style, passing for 346 yards and three touchdowns to help the Vikings beat New Orleans Monday night and spoil Adrian Peterson's first game with the Saints.

Thank you to Rivers for being the hilarious slapstick quarterback that he is. His second attempt at the kick was blocked, clinching victory for Denver. The rookie kicker made it, but a timeout was called by the Broncos. Hardly. Were it not for Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward's sudden butterfingers, a first-quarter throw might have gone the other way.

If Trevor Siemian can make a handful of clutch throws, too, as he did Monday night against the Los Angeles Chargers, then that's some delicious bonus gravy. "We'll fix that and be able to finish the game even better". The Broncos have a big home game against the Dallas Cowboys.
