San Diego Chargers
Tony Carter was phenomenal in the Broncos’ 35-24 win in San Diego Monday Night and he could turn into a rising star for Denver.
The Denver Broncos remarkable comeback in the second half against the San Diego Chargers on Monday night was one for the record books, but rookie defensive lineman Derek Wolfe said he’s been involved in an even bigger comeback.
Turns out reports of Peyton Manning’s demise were ridiculously premature. Denver’s quarterback has been outstanding by every measure since throwing three interceptions in the first quarter at Atlanta a month ago.
Denver started out slow–very slow–finding themselves down 24-0 at halftime. But the offense and defense stepped up in a huge way in the second half to earn them the important win Monday night.
Peyton Manning threw three touchdown passes in the second half and Tony Carter and Chris Harris scored off turnovers by Philip Rivers as the Denver Broncos overcame a 24-0 halftime deficit to stun the San Diego Chargers 35-24 on Monday night.
Peyton Manning is still crossing paths with the Chargers. On Monday night, he’ll bring his Denver Broncos (2-3) to Qualcomm Stadium to face the AFC West rival Chargers (3-2).
All six Denver players listed on the team’s injury report are probable, while Chargers’ kicker Nate Kaeding will miss the Monday Night game and other important players may sit out as well.
Phillip Rivers’ weapons have changed, but he still knows how to use them well. The same goes for Peyton Manning, and the two high-powered offenses face each other this Monday Night.
Denver decided to go full-pads for only the fifth time Thursday and Demaryius Thomas is told to carry around a football all week long.
It was a week to forget for the AFC West, as three of the four teams lost while the Raiders were on their bye. But this Monday’s matchup will determine the best in the AFC West as the Chargers and Broncos meet in San Diego.
