San Diego Chargers' Positional Grades vs. Denver Broncos
Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Despite not showing up until the fourth quarter, the San Diego Chargers lost by one touchdown at Sports Authority Field to the Denver Broncos, 24-17, in the AFC Divisional Round of the playoffs.

The Broncos had the game in complete control for three quarters, dominating the Bolts to the tune of 17-0 on the scoreboard, but it felt like it was much, much worse.

San Diego’s defense made huge stops at the end of the first half and held the Broncos to a field goal to start the second half to keep the game within range. There was a very real possibility the score could have been 28-0 by the time the Chargers touched the ball in the third quarter, but there was the slightest glimmer of hope for a comeback.

It was all for naught, however, as Peyton Manning and the Broncos were able to hold for the win and advance to face the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game next week.

As for San Diego, there is plenty of blame to go around in this loss as the Chargers now head into the offseason.
