The Chargers went to Denver, and upset the heavily favored Broncos. Heavily favored, that is by a sports media that doesn’t realize they have to play the games, not just talk about them.
It’s a division game and good teams compete no matter what.
Phillip Rivers, Ryan Matthews and Keenan Allen, who caught two touchdown passes tonight in San Diego’s 27-20 victory over Denver, made sure the Chargers continued competing for that #6 playoff spot. Matthews ran for 127 yards on 29 carries, while San Diego controlled the time of possession against Denver.
We are going to have to remove the Phillip Rivers douchery category after tonight’s game. Phillip Rivers is a very good quarterback. Plus the Chargers, as much as we dislike division rivals, managed to put a crimp into the coronation of Peyton Manning.
Meanwhile, real questions arise for the Broncos. Suddenly, Peyton Manning is looking somewhat human. The Broncos defense is looking suspect. And the Broncos are not looking like the sure fire Super Bowl team they were in Week Five. Of course, titles are not won in Week Five.
