Denver has been one of the worst teams in football this season. They are 0-4, have a -23 point differential, and have lost a couple of games in terrible fashion. Back in Week 2, they lost because a defender touched down a Bears receiver who had fallen in the waning seconds, allowing them to call timeout and kick the winning field goal. Last week, they got outscored 20-7 in the second half by Minshew Mania, resulting in a two point loss. Things have not been pretty for the Broncos, and it is difficult right now to have faith in the players or coaching staff. Now that Bradley Chubb is out for the year, stopping opposing teams will likely be a question mark every week.

The Chargers are 2-2, but have suffered through numerous injuries, a tough schedule, and, of course, Melvin Gordon’s holdout. Mike Williams and Hunter Henry have both resumed practicing, with the former shaping up to play in Week 5. The team should also get some real work out of Gordon, who returned to the team last week. The Chargers have also already made two different 1 p.m. road trips, but will be playing at home this week. We should see the best version of the Chargers that has come in a while, especially since Denver is by far the worst team they have seen so far.
