The Broncos are facing an identity crisis this week as they face division rival and current leader of the AFC West at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The Chargers come into Denver with a 3-1 record with victories over the Dolphins, the Chiefs and the Vikings.
To this point in the season each of those teams are a collective 1-11. The one loss the Chargers suffered was to the New England Patriots and it wasn't even close (35-21).
The Chargers are a beatable team this week against a battered Broncos team who has faced four teams all of which with even or winning records. The Broncos have faced the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers, the 3-1 Titans, the Raiders and the Bengals. These teams have a combined 11-5 record.
Several of these games the Broncos were in until the end when the game slipped away from them. This matchup proves to be an exciting one which should be decided in the closing minutes of the game.
Here are this week's keys to the game against the San Diego Chargers.
