Peyton Manning and his Denver Broncos will be on prime time once again this week. This time the Broncos will take on the Chargers at 8:30PM on Monday Night Football. So far, the Broncos have been on two other late games Including a week two Monday night game and week one Sunday night game. Week one, they were able to win against Pittsburgh, but fell on Monday night football against the Falcons one week later.
The game will take place in San Diego Monday at Qualcomm Stadium at 8:30 PM. The Broncos will come into the game with a 2-3 record and are coming off a loss to the Patriots last Sunday 31-21. The Broncos have struggled, but have faced a very hard schedule to this point. This game should be a little easier for them and should hopefully produce winning results. Manning will face a familiar foe in the Chargers QB Phillip Rivers.
Rivers brings his Chargers into the game with a 3-2 record. His team, however, did just lose last Sunday to the New Orleans Saints. This was the Saints first victory of the season to date. Rivers has played very well this year, but has had up and down help from his running backs. The Chargers defense has also been strong, but has failed to stay consistent with their play. Last weeks play was an unfortunate lapse against a Saints team they should have been able to win against. This week, their opponent gets tougher and can send the Chargers into one of their yearly droughts.
