Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers last tested their game plan against the Kansas City Chiefs, and it didn’t work out well. They were defeated with a 24-17 scoreboard. QB Philip Rivers was going for 28/52 with 353 passing yards. He managed to throw in 1 TD and earned 4 picks. Melvin Gordon took up the ground game by enabling 14 carries. He scored 69 yards even though he didn’t connect any rushing TDs. Austin Ekeler received the ball 8 times, increasing the team’s territory by 108 yards.

The Los Angeles Chargers ironically rushed the ball only 19 times out of 73 plays. They couldn’t live out their name because of their opponent’s tight anti-rush defense. The Chargers tried to adjust by switching to a predominantly throw-based offense. As a result, they won the yardage gain battle, accumulating a total of 438 yards. In contrast, their opponent managed to chalk in only 310 yards.

The Chargers tried to do a rebound by clamping down on throw defense. They were able to reduce the opponent’s throw completion rate to only 59%. However, they did not have any solutions for the relentless rush attempts. The opponent got through with 27 runs. The Chargers need to reevaluate their playing style and plug up the holes in their game plan.

Denver Broncos

The Broncos didn’t have a fighting chance against the Buffalo Bills. They floundered with a 20-3 endgame scoreboard. QB Brandon Allen was going for 10/25 with a mere 82 passing yards. He didn’t score a thrown TD, but he ended the game with an interception. Phillip Lindsay was equally low-performing, carrying only 13 balls across 57 yards. Courtland Sutton caught only 2 balls, chalking in a measly 27 yards.

The stats of the players already hinted in a very hostile field. The Broncos ran the ball only 17 times out of 46 plays. Both the rush percentage as well as the number of plays were abysmally low. The Broncos implemented only 9 first downs, and their small gains were almost nullified by 7 penalties. The defense was sub-par, with Denver allowing a 60% throw completion rate and a whopping 47 rush attempts.

With a rush defense full of holes, it’s not difficult to imagine what happened to the Broncos. They were only able to gain 134 yards as opposed to their opponent’s 244 yards. They were overwhelmed by the sheer number of rush attempts and resulting points that their opponents reaped. The Broncos better shape up if they want to make a comeback in the stats of their last games for the season.
