the Chargers have climbed back into contending for the division, especially if the Broncos dont win against the Steelers. Essentially, the lead would be down to 1 game and one game remaining against San Diego.

Next two weeks are huge. They lay Philly coming off a loss at home and then at Denver.

We need to hold serve by beating Pitt tonight, winning at Washington and then defending the homefield against the Chuggers.

The bad part about all this is our schedule is much more difficult than theirs. They caught NYG struggling and we'll probably play them when they're on the rebound.

I know. Many were writing off the Chargers after we defeated them and many would have ahead of time seen that game yesterday as a loss for the Chargers.

The Giants are not the team that they are all hyped up to be. Their Oline was like a bucket with a huge hole in it.

Yeah, but Denver still have 3 games against Oak/KC, while SD has one. Those arent gimmees but they seem more winnable than Pittsburgh/NYG.

We thought that last year too. I trust that McDaniels will have them ready to play. That's the hope at least. They've been pretty focused sans Baltimore last week.

I won't fall into the trap of the division talk this year, and neither should the Broncos. The only thing that matters is Pittsburgh right now, and then Washington and so on.

I can't handle the heart break again

Pitt has already beat the Chargers. Losing a "common" game tonight isn't as bad for Denver as it would be for San Diego if Denver pulls it out and flips the game.

Both have lost to Baltimore. Both have played their AFC East opponent. Both still have their game against the Skins and their AFC South opponent.

The only team with a winning record that San Diego has beaten is the Giants who, while they can still right the ship, are falling apart right now. 4 of Denver's 6 wins have come against teams with winning records, and the Broncos have beaten 3 6-2 teams. 3 of San Diego's wins have come against Oakland and KC. 1 of Denver's wins has come against that group.

Denver has played Cleveland, who San Diego still has them to play.

San Diego still has to come to Denver AND play the 6-2 Cowboys and Bengals, both of which Denver has already beat.

A Denver loss tonight is much more important to SD than it is to the Broncos. The critical game is in 2 weeks.

Don't look now, lex, but the Yankees beat the Phillies and the "idiots" at ESPN were right...

The Chargers will lose at least 3 of the following:

Philly
Denver
Dallas
Cincy
Tennessee (yes, I said it)

Regardless what the Chargers do, the Broncos are no longer an insecure football team. It is about what the Broncos can or cannot do, not what the Chargers are doing. We now have a coach that truly lives by the "one game at a time" philosophy. They won't be watching the Chargers on TV before they take the field, they will be focused only on the team they are facing on the field.

The Giants had that game in the bag yesterday and then Coughlin went brain dead. That was pathetic.

Once again the fact that you were completely wrong escapes you. Your cloak of stupidity must be very comfortable.

We are lucky we got the Dallas game out of the way early. That was nearly a loss and they are playing much better now that Miles Austin has kicked their passing game into overdrive. That will be a very tough matchup for SD.

Both teams have a lot of winnable but also loseable games left. As well has Denver has done so far, they have little margin for a drop off. A lot of our games have been very tight wins. If that kind of evens out, it could become nervous.
