There’s little doubt that tonight’s Chargers vs Broncos game on Thursday Night Football is all about the quarterbacks. While Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning set the all-time record for passing TDs last week, Rivers had his fourth straight game with a passer rating north of 120. As we watch Thursday Night Football online Chargers vs Broncos live streaming or on CBS, there’s little doubt this could be a QB game for the ages.
Last Sunday, Manning threw four touchdowns in the Broncos 42-17 domination over the San Francisco 49ers. In addition to setting the TD record, he also delivered an incredible 157.2 passer rating. Not to be outdone, San Diego’s Philip Rivers threw for 288 yards and 3 touchdowns on his way to a 125 passer rating.
As you watch the Broncos game live online or on TV tonight, the implications go far beyond quarterback bragging rights. Denver is currently sitting at 5-1, the best record in the AFC West, while the 5-2 Chargers are right behind them in the No. 2 slot. A Chargers victory would create a tie for first and could have big playoff implications.
Yet San Diego’s offensive line will have to work overtime. The Broncos’ Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware have a combined 15 sacks this season and are a big reason Denver allows 74.3 yards rushing per game. The Chargers game hasn’t been strong on the ground this season, giving Miller and Ware extra incentive to take gambles in going after Rivers as you watch Chargers online live on TNF tonight.
