Today’s Denver Broncos vs San Diego Chargers football game might have been a top draw on today’s NFL schedule had the Chargers not dropped last week’s game against a struggling Redskins squad. There will be a reunion for former Broncos offensive coordinator and now Chargers head coach Mike McCoy when we watch Denver Broncos vs San Diego Chargers online free live streaming NFL football game on CBS Sports by following the links presented below.
The Broncos will be without head coach John Fox who is recovering from heart surgery. Defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio will take control of the team that will be playing with a little extra emotion today, as if they need it. The Broncos are 7-1 and heavily favored to easily dismiss the Chargers today despite playing on the road without their head coach.
Denver has been nothing short of dominant on offense this season and barring a monumental collapse will break the all-time record for points scored of 589 by the 2007 New England Patriots. They are averaging a whopping 42.9 points per game with Peyton Manning throwing 29 touchdown passes already and 2,919 yards through the air. He could potentially break Brady’s 50 touchdown pass record set during that same 2007 campaign, as well as Drew Brees’ 5,476 yards passing record set in 2011. This is most certainly the age of the prolific quarterback.
The Broncos had last week off after blowing out the Redskins 45-21 at home. If they win today, which barring a collapse they should, then Peyton Manning will have to face the still undefeated Kansas City Chiefs twice and the Patriots on the road over the next three weeks. There’s no tougher stretch for any team in the league, and it will show good the Broncos offense really is, and whether their weaker defense can start stepping up.
All the Chargers had to do last week to win their third game in a row was score a touchdown from first and goal at the one-yard line with 21 seconds left. Instead the Redskins defense stuffed them three straight downs and the Chargers kicked a field goal instead to send the game to overtime. In the OT the Redskins marched down the field, scored a touchdown, and the Chargers never even touched the ball. The Chargers will be charged up to right that bad ending when we watch Chargers vs Broncos online free live streaming game on CBS today.
It was a crushing defeat for the Chargers who dropped to 4-4 and are having a tough time breaking away from .500 and entering the upper echelons of the NFL. Coach McCoy and offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt are being scrutinzed for deciding to throw the ball on two of those final three plays at the 1-yard line during regulation. The logical call there would be to pound the ball three consecutive times and even try a quarterback sneak, not send Drew Brees out on a roll out of the pocket on third down where he had no open receivers to throw to.
Philip Rivers’ eyes will light up today knowing he’s going against a defense that is averaging coughing up nearly 30 points a game, even if they already have 13 interceptions on the season. Rivers is the only quarterback in the NFL with a completion percentage ahead of Manning at 72.2, and he could be in for a big game today if he can avoid mistakes and those costly turnovers.
