Denver Broncos vs Los Angeles Chargers 10/06/2019
The Broncos are emerging from a loss against the Jacksonville Jaguars, a heartbreaker that ended with 26-24. Quarterback Joe Flacco registered 22 out of 38 with 303 air yards and threw an impressive 3 touchdowns, plus an interception. Phillip Lindsay led the charge by rushing with 9 carries of a total of 53 yards. Emmanuel Sanders brought up the rear by receiving 5 receptions at 104 yards. The Broncos rushed 16 times and gained 68 yards; they made 54 plays which allowed them to cover 371 yards. The Broncos did decent defense, allowing only 19 out of 33 throws which allowed the opponent a limited 186 yards and a completion rate of 58%.
The Broncos fared badly against rush tactics; they gave way 269 yards based on 38 rush attempts. The Broncos are, as expected, no favorite of any level-headed bettor because of their winless record. However, they actually have a decent defensive line, but their offense really needs serious adjustments. It’s become a trend that a lot of NFL teams over-train on defense but lack offensive initiative. The Broncos are one of those teams that should shift training to avail of more offensive options in order to gather more points.

Los Angeles Chargers
The LA Chargers staved off the Miami Dolphins during their last matchup at 30-10. Austin Ekeler took up the rushing top post with 18 carries for 60 yards, churning out a 9-yard run and one touchdown. Meanwhile, Dontrelle Inman scored 5 receptions at 76 yards, averaging a respectable 15.2 yardage on average. QB Philip Rivers pumped a 24/30 performance with 310 passing yards and connected 2 touchdowns without any interceptions. The Chargers stayed true to their name, rushing 33 times and gaining 79 yards. The Chargers did fine with 24 first-downs and a total of 10 penalties at 89 yards. For that particular game, they had an output of 65 plays, allowing them to gain a total of 390 yards.
The defensive end seems to have been overlooked last game, with the Chargers unable to defend against 17 out of 24 throws that covered 161 yards and pegged at 71% completion rate. It must be noted, however, that the Chargers usually choke the passing attempts and yardage of the enemy. The Chargers are doing their best to stay true to their team’s name by pumping rush attempts. However, they don’t cover a lot of yardage with their plays. This will be a problem against higher-ranked teams which had their defenses covered well.
