San Diego Chargers vs. Denver Broncos Preview
The Chargers are not getting a lot of credit, but they are playing some good football. Sunday’s impressive victory over the New York Giants kept the Chargers just a game behind the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins in the
battle for the second AFC wild-card berth. The Chargers defense has been their Achilles heel this season, but they have played much better of late.
It has been the most scrutinized position group on the team this season, but in the past two games the secondary of the San Diego Chargers has played its best football. The Chargers have given up 20 passing touchdowns this season, but just two in the past two games. Against the Giants, the Chargers broke up 11 passes and finished with two interceptions, one by Donald Butler and cornerback Shareece Wright’s first of the season. They will get a huge test against Peyton Manning and one of the best offenses in football.
The Chargers are very fortunate on defense of late, getting the crucial turnovers. The Chargers managed just seven turnovers through the first 10 games of the season but now have forced seven turnovers in the past three games, including a season-high three turnovers that led to 14 points against the Giants.
