QUICKLY:

* The Broncos, who are looking to snap a three-game losing streak, defeated San Diego 34-23 on Monday Night Football on Oct. 19. Facing a Chargers team that has won its last four games, Denver aims for its first season sweep of its series with San Diego since 2005.
* Sunday's game vs. San Diego marks the first time Denver has played a team 100 times in the regular season. The only team the Broncos have faced 100 times including playoffs is Oakland (98 reg. / 2 post.).

OFFENSE:

* WR Brandon Marshall has posted at least 100 receiving yards in each of his previous two games. He scored on TD catches of 75 and 40 yards in the first quarter last week at Washington, becoming only the 11th player in the NFL since 1940 to post two TD grabs of 40 yards in the opening quarter.
* RB Knowshon Moreno leads all NFL rookies with 591 yards from scrimmage and 520 rushing yards, which represent the eighth-highest total by an NFL rookie through his team's first nine games since 2005.
* QB Kyle Orton registered a 134.7 passer rating (11-18, 193 yds., 2-0) in the first half at Washington last week before missing the second half due to an injury. QB Chris Simms replaced him and saw his most extensive action since his last pro start (9/24/06 vs. Carolina) with Tampa Bay.

DEFENSE:

* Coached by long-time NFL defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, the Broncos are tied for second in the league in sacks (29) while ranking fourth in points per game allowed (16.8) and fifth in yards per play allowed (4.8).
* OLB/DE Elvis Dumervil has an AFC-best 11 games with two sacks since entering the NFL in 2006. That total ties for the ninth most in league history through a player's first four NFL seasons.

SPECIAL TEAMS:

* WR Eddie Royal handles return duties for the Broncos in addition to his work at wide receiver. He is the only player in the NFL to post at least 1,300 yards from scrimmage and 1,300 return yards since his rookie year in 2008.
* ILB/FB Spencer Larsen's five solo special-teams tackles in November (3 games) tie for the third-highest total in the NFL.

“All Ready”- Darrent Williams


"So when he gets pressure, the back slips out and you've got everybody a little deeper because it's later in the play and the back has some space to work with, that's kind of what they did to us the last time. And their backs catch well and know what to do once they have it. But we know we have to get to him. You can't let him just stand back there and look at what you're doing" – Champ Bailey


"I do enjoy going there it's a great atmosphere, a great place to play."–Phillip Rivers

"I'm in love with Chris Simms' arm, he has a great arm, but he's also smart and also one of the hardest workers we have on this team." –Brandon Marshall

"I do think the passion that they have for playing this game and this team, it's hard for it not to carry over to the coaching staff, or anyone else in the building for that matter, when you feel that way about another team, it doesn't mean you disrespect them, it just means that you know this game means a little bit more than others." –Coach McDaniels

"For me, that's when it really started with the not liking the Chargers, because they got all mad about that (Patriots dancing on the field). And then the next year, when I came here, they were doing the same thing," Graham said. "It was just like they were hypocrites or something." –Daniel Graham

"Our job does not change. I've said this quite a few times. Our job does not change. No matter who our quarterback is, no matter what the offense is doing or whatever you want to say, our job does not change. It remains the same. We have to do a better job of doing what we are supposed to do this game and then be consistent at doing it, not having spurts of doing it and then trying to do too much at other times. We've just got to do what we are supposed to do and go up against a very, very talented team" -Brian Dawkins



Go Broncos...let's see some crying lightning.

The moment of truth.

For a long time I have had nightmares with the numbers 52-21 flashing in front of me....

This game is so important for exorcising those demons, but we are suddenly reeling from injuries... why does it feel that the whole universe is conspiring against the Broncos....

a win today would silence a lot of people and put us right back in the drivers seat. It will be a tough task, but not impossible. The bolts haven't exactly played great football during their 4 game winning streak.

I still don't think Chargers have the inside size to exploit the broncos biggest weakness on offense, the interior oline size.

They do seem a bit better outside with the OLB but I have faith in Clady, but with Harris still probably out its a worry.

On defense our only hope is to shut down the run and get to Rivers. Otherwise we lose.

With Orton probably out it's not looking real good.

Injuries have reared there ugly head in Denver and its hurting pretty bad.

@ Bosschief!

Funny stuff but I am pretty sure a fan of an opposing team posting flaccid a$$es and boobs somehow provides us with good mojo.

"We didn't come back with that same fire and attention to detail," Holliday said. "You hate to say it, but you know the old saying, 'You drink the Kool-Aid?' We got full of it. When you look at our roster, we don't have all the Pro Bowl players. We're not the Dallas Cowboys, where they say they have all the talent. We're just a group of hard-working, blue-collar guys who work together to get it done. When we win games, that's the way it's going to be. For the past three weeks, we have not done that."

I still remember my first game at AH, it was the 2003 season opener where Vonnie was playing his first game for us and he had three sacks against SD.

He ended that year with 5.

If they still had Williams, it would be a problem. But their DL is about as average as Denver's right now. In fact I bet you see a lot of dive plays up the a gaps today.

Queefs gave him a large sum of money and he took a Holliday.
