Another AFC West rivalry will be played on Sunday as the Broncos play the Chargers. The Broncos just played the Patriots, upsetting them in overtime, and winning 33-27. They have improved to a record of 9-2 and are in first place in AFC West. San Diego just played the Jaguars and won 31-25. Their record has improved to 3-8 and they are in fourth place in AFC West.
Brock Osweiler is the starting quarterback for the Broncos right now. Osweiler has completed 57 out of 93 passes for 666 yards. He has four touchdowns on the season.
Ronnie Hillman leads the team in rushing. He has carried the ball 138 times for 587 yards. Hillman averages over four yards per carry and has six touchdowns this year.
Demaryius Thomas is the team’s number-one receiver. He has caught 72 passes for 911 yards this year. Thomas averages 12.7 yards per catch and has two touchdowns on the year.
Philip Rivers leads the Chargers in passing this year. He has thrown for 3,511 yards, completing 317 out of 463 passes. Rivers has 23 touchdowns on the season.
Rookie Melvin Gordon is San Diego’s leading rusher. Gordon has run for 510 yards, carrying the ball 143 times. He averages over three yards per carry.
Keenan Allen is the leading receiver in San Diego. Allen has caught 67 passes for 725 yards. He averages 10.8 yards per catch and has four touchdowns on the season.
For this game, I’m picking the Broncos. They are just coming off a major win, which should definitely be a confidence-booster. The Chargers won their last game, but they’re about to get a wake-up call from Denver.
