One thing is for certain – if the Denver Broncos are going to beat the San Diego Chargers this Sunday, they’ll need to play mistake-free football.
The Chargers defense has been much-maligned all season, but recently put together a string of games that has them moving in the right direction. They’ve forced eight turnovers in a three-game span, while the Broncos have coughed it up six times in that span.
Meanwhile, the Broncos sit among the bottom of the league in turnover differential – the defense is not turning the ball over to match the offense’s mistakes.
On the bright side, the Chargers had success against relatively weak offenses – the Raiders, Chiefs and Bucs aren’t scoring a lot of points this season, and none of them have a quarterback near the same caliber as Jay Cutler.
This is one aspect of the game that favors the Chargers, but luckily for the Broncos, it’s an aspect of the game of they can control. The Broncos have to do this in order to win, plain and simple.
