Broncos vs. Chargers: Why this Thursday night game will be different

Broncos vs. Chargers: Why this Thursday night game will be different

Forget about the Thursday night Broncos/Chargers game last season. This year's Thursday night game is going to be very, very different. This Thursday night the Denver Broncos host the San Diego Chargers. Does this matchup sound familiar and make you grumpy? There's a reason for that. The Broncos only home loss last season was a Thursday night home game verses the Chargers. And that game was a mess. #Broncos broke a bunch of records vs. #Titans a year ago, then lost to the #Chargers at home on Thursday night four days later. — MileHighReport (@MileHighReport) October 20, 2014 The...

Jamaal Charles saw 'light buzzes' on Brandon Flowers hit but doesn't think he had concussion

Jamaal Charles saw 'light buzzes' on Brandon Flowers hit but doesn't think he had concussion

Jamaal Charles broke the Kansas City Chiefs all-time rushing record in the most spectacular fashion last Sunday against the San Diego Chargers. Taking a handoff, Charles ran to the right side of the field where he met a wall of defenders, cut back inside and then dove into the end zone where he was drilled by former Chiefs CB Brandon Flowers. Take a look at the play: Notice that hit he took. Flowers had to come out of the game but Charles did not. Speaking on the Dan LeBatard Show this week, Charles was asked about that hit and whether he received a concussion. Here is the exchange...

Peyton Manning's 509 touchdowns in five amazing infographics

Peyton Manning broke the NFL touchdown record this Sunday. Here's how his 509 touchdowns went down, presented in five infographics by receiver, opponent, city, distance, and year. By Receiver How impressive is it that there are four orange jerseys in Peyton Manning's Top 12? John Elway has put together an impressive team around Manning. (via NFL) By Opponent Manning vs. the New England Patriots is a rivalry so storied it fits between his old AFC South divisional foes.  Maybe Manning can throw for eight touchdowns in Week 9 in Foxboro to throw things for a loop, eh?

Trent Baalke on Broncos loss, getting young players reps, NaVorro Bowman, Aldon Smith

Trent Baalke had his weekly radio call-in segment on Tuesday, and we've got a transcript for you. Baalke talked about NaVorro Bowman's rehab, Aldon Smith's suspension, and young players getting reps in Sunday's loss. San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke made his regular Tuesday appearance on the Damon Bruce Show on 95.7 The Game, and had plenty to talk about following the team's loss to the Denver Broncos. I've posted a transcript below, and you can listen to the audio HERE. The most notable information was probably about linebacker NaVorro Bowman. Baalke said that Bowman is...

Broncos' Chris Harris Jr. vs. Chargers' Philip Rivers - Horse Tracks

The Denver Broncos practice sans helmets Tuesday; Chris Harris Jr. knows Philip Rivers "is going to come after me"; Broncos prepare for Thursday Night Football. The Denver Broncos continued their preparation for the San Diego Chargers on a short week in a unique way Tuesday. No pads. Not even shells. And no helmets. Head coach John Fox wouldn't go into details why the Broncos had a light workout, but ostensibly, it was still less than 48 hours after the Broncos put a drubbing on the San Francisco 49ers at home. Denver was still resting, using Tuesday's practice to prepare mentally for San...

Kansas City Chiefs cut Jerel Worthy from practice squad, add a guard

The Chiefs cut DT Jerel Worthy and signed G Jarrod Pughsley. The Kansas City Chiefs cut the most recognizable name on their practice squad, defensive tackle Jerel Worthy. This according to Tuesday's transactions report from the league. Worthy was a former second round pick by the Green Bay Packers just two years ago. The Chiefs added him to their practice squad earlier this year but never made the jump up to the active roster. It's an odd situation that a player can go from a big time school like Michigan State, get drafted in the second round and then be unable to hold onto a practice...

After close look at Kansas Ctiy Chiefs, CBS' Solomon Wilcots says 'This is a playoff team'

CBS analyst Solomon Wilcots called Sunday's game with Spero Dedes, and was nice enough to take time and talk about the Chiefs' big win over the Chargers. The Kansas City Chiefs earned a huge 23-20 victory over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, leveling their record at 3-3 and putting them right back into the playoff race. CBS was on the call for the game, with Spero Dedes and ex-NFL defensive back Solomon Wilcots in the broadcast booth. On Tuesday evening, Wilcots was kind enough to speak with me at length over the phone about what he saw in the Chiefs, and what he sees going forward. Q:...

San Diego Chargers Daily Links: October 22, 2014

Your daily dose of San Diego Chargers news & notes from around the web. Week 7 Quick Reads - Vincent VerheiThe KC-SD game was truly a contrast in styles. We already talked about Alex Smith's tendency to throw short passes. Meanwhile, Rivers focused on the deep ball, with an average pass attempt traveling 15.1 yards beyond the line of scrimmage, most of any starter this week. On ten deep passes, he went 3-of-9 for 78 yards and an interception, plus a 22-yard DPI.

Vote for the Broncos vs. 49ers play of the game

What was your favorite play from this past Sunday Night? 507 Sanders is in the slot. He runs a shallow cross and is helped by an unsuspecting referee trying to set his vantage point. 508 I can never get enough of the old "I know what you know, what I know you know." The Broncos know their tendencies, they know how their opposition will react to those tendencies, so they throw in another wrinkle and presto you have yourselves some fancy trickery. 509 Peyton talked about running this play against the Niners in preseason. That time it was Bubba Caldwell. Manning said he rushed the...

Since the game will be on Thursday night the Broncos will only have two practices to prepare for the Chargers.

Donovan McNabb and Andy Reid are back together this Sunday

Donovan McNabb is set to call the Rams-Chiefs game on FOX where Andy Reid is coaching. One of the most successful and prolific quarterback-head coach combinations in Philadelphia Eagles franchise history is reuniting this Sunday. Sort of. It turns out that Eagles all-time passing leader Donovan McNabb, who is now a sports analyst at Fox Sports 1, will be on the call as part of the Fox broadcast team during this week's St. Louis Rams-Kansas City Chiefs game. Former Eagles head coach Andy Reid, who earned a record of 130-93-1 during his tenure with Philadelphia, is now obviously the man in...

49ers vs. Broncos: Looking at San Francisco's sacks allowed [GIFs]

The 49ers gave up a lot of sacks. Joe Staley got beat a bunch. Alex Boone didn't block anybody. Super fun! When it rains, it pours. The San Francisco 49ers have a slew of injuries and the players who were actually healthy looked foolish against the Denver Broncos on Sunday. I said before the game that I was confident, but for no real reason -- discerning readers will note my random confidence is rarely placed properly. Whatever the case, there's one aspect of this game that I predicted correctly: the pass rush and offensive line play on both sides. I'm a little surprised the 49ers managed...

The breakdown of the individual performances both good and bad for the Raiders in their week 7 match-up with the Arizona Cardinals. Another week, another loss. And not near as exciting a loss as the offensive explosion last week against the Chargers. This week saw the Raiders behind from start to finish against the Cardinals. They pulled to within one point at 14-13 but then the Cardinals pulled away and won 24-13. The was more intrigue heading into this game than most of the other games the Raiders had played. They were facing a decent, albeit not dominant team in the Cardinals with...

Mile High Report takes a look back at how we've covered Mr. B. and what makes him such an influential figure in Broncos history. With all the excitement Peyton Manning has brought to Broncos Country in shattering Brett Favre's touchdown record on Sunday, the Broncos latest nod to its legacy of greatness could easily get lost in the back of the sports pages.

San Diego Chargers need to get back to basics

The San Diego Chargers are scuffling a bit after barely beating the Raiders and then losing to the Chiefs. Here's how they can get back to being one of the league's best teams. The sky isn't falling, you guys. The Chargers lost to a division rival who made fewer mistakes than San Diego. You're going to lose those games 9 times out of 10. There are a lot of excuses being made for the Chargers. "The Chiefs were coming off of a bye week" being the main one, but it didn't feel like the Kansas City had this incredible game plan that they put together. The Chargers didn't lose this game because...
