Chargers vs Broncos NFL 2019 Week 13
Denver Broncos analysis
In week 12, the Broncos faced the Bills and were totally crushed, they lost 20-3. The reality is that the Broncos record is 3-8, they don’t have their starting quarterback, Joe Flacco was injured, and, to say the least, he was never up to the challenge. Since then, Brandon Allen has been the one at the helm and things have not changed.
That said, there is news that rookie quarterback Drew Lock can make his debut after suffering a wrist injury and at least one new face will be seen after so many fiascos in that position.
This probable debut comes as a result of Denver only having 134 total yards on the offensive against Buffalo. The Denver offensive has been bad all year. They are number 27th, averaging 302.8 yards per game and 29 by air, the absence of a competent quarterback is more than visible.
Losing four of their last five games, Denver now has the fifth pick of the next draft, so winning is not exactly recommended. That said, few teams – if any – will really give up on the season.
Von Miller, the star linebacker, is doubt after a knee discomfort, but has not been ruled out. After all, Denver is on its way to another season with double digits in losses and a change of command, since the hierarchy of the general manager, John Elway, should be a priority in the next offseason, today they don’t aspire to much.
Los Angeles Chargers analysis
After two consecutive divisional defeats, the Chargers had a week off and plan to shake off that bad streak against the Broncos. On both occasions, they had the opportunity to overcome the match but Philip Rivers, their quarterback, threw in both games interceptions in the last drive that ended the hopes of the team.
The good news is that the Chargers will recover several players who have been significant absences during the season. Strong safety Derwin James, safety Adrian Phillips, offensive tackle Russell Okung and linebacker Drue Tranquill will be ready to return to the field.
Rivers will face the fifth best defense by air in the NFL and, throwing 15 TDs and 14 interceptions in the season, Rivers should consider going by ground with runners Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler before throwing passes that can cost the team expensive turnovers.
In addition, in their first game this year, Denver cornerback Chris Harris dried up Los Angeles’ best receiver Keenan Allen. He limited it to just four receptions and 18 yards. Be careful with that matchup.
