Keenan Allen isn't afraid to say how he feels.

The Los Angeles Chargers wideout refused to give the Denver Broncos credit following Denver's 23-22 win Sunday, instead throwing the blame on his own team.

"No, I don't think they played well at all. We dominated the game. Turnovers, we gave them some points, and that's what happened. They suck," Allen told reporters.

The Chargers outgained the Broncos 479-325, but Philip Rivers threw two interceptions, and the team committed 14 penalties for 120 yards.

The Broncos won on a 34-yard Brandon McManus field goal as time expired. They drove 76 yards in one minute, 51 seconds to cap off the win and move to 4-6 on the season.

"Those are things we've stayed away from—penalties and turnovers—but they showed up today. For whatever reason, I don't know. We'll figure it out, though," head coach Anthony Lynn told reporters.

Allen had a game-high nine receptions for 89 yards and a touchdown. Rivers, who threw for 401 yards and two touchdowns, was engaged in a war of words with Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. throughout the game.

Harris finished with eight tackles and a pick.
