San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos
Date and Time: Thursday 12/12/13 at 8:30pm on NFL Network
Game Line: Denver Broncos -10 (from JustBet)
NFL Thursday Week 15 Preview: The Broncos are 11-2 and in the AFC West driver’s seat after clinching a playoff spot and putting up a season high 551 yards in Sunday’s 51-28 win over Tennessee. Their 1,086 offensive yards in the last two weeks is their best two-game stretch of the season. The San Diego Chargers on the other hand have their slim playoff chances hinging on containing Peyton Manning in Denver where they haven’t lost all season. At 6-7 following Sunday’s 37-14 win against the New York Giants at home, the Chargers don’t have any room for error in their final three games. With that being said, their chances of containing this passing attack are slim to none as well, the Chargers are allowing almost 400 yards of offense and are not one of the better in the league. Peyton Manning will set the NFL single season touch down record with another four touchdown game, which isn’t unrealistic. He will have to do so without all star wide receiver West Welker who is doubtful after leaving last weekend’s game with a concussion. The Broncos, however, have relied on plenty of weapons this season and losing Welker shouldn’t keep them from moving the ball effectively. Tight end Julius Thomas returned from a two game knee injury and scored his 11th touchdown of the season, leading the team. The Broncos have also won four straight against San Diego including a 28-20 win against the Chargers on November 10th when San Diego held the Broncos to a season low 297 yards of offense. San Diego’s win against the Giants last week was their best offensive output this season, albeit against a very questionable Giants defense. Denver might be in a bit of a letdown spot after securing a playoff spot last weekend but playing this game at home against a very mediocre defense like San Diego, they should simply outscore the Chargers and win this game going away.

Chargers at Broncos Game Prediction: 31-17 Broncos
What to expect in this week 15 NFL match up: Peyton and the Bronco offense will have a tougher time scoring points early in this game against San Diego, who seemed to have the Denver offense figured out when they met last month. The Broncos will be in a close game at half time but they will make the adjustments and Peyton will find the open recievers more in the second half. San Diego’s lack of offensive play makers will hurt them in this one, they will try to get running back Ryan Matthews going early to keep the Denver offense off the field but he will be ineffective. Denver will have this game wrapped up by the end of the third quarter.
