San Diego Chargers Defeat Denver Broncos 29-24

Here we are, as San Diego Chargers fans, again. We feel ungrateful. The football team that we root for is 4-1, its only loss to one of the league's best teams, and in first place and feeling like that team is no good.

This week, the Bolts played like the bizarro Bolts. They were excellent in the first half, even finishing off the half with a long and dramatic TD pass from Philip Rivers to Malcom Floyd, and terrible in the second half. Take away the interception returned for a TD, and the score at the half would've been 23-3 Chargers. In the second half, Tim Tebow led the Broncos to 14 points against just 6 for San Diego.

It's a win, and the Chargers now head into a bye to get healthy and prepare for the New York Jets. However, three glaring weaknesses shined brightly in this game for San Diego. First, there is no red zone offense to speak of without Antonio Gates. Second, when handed a halftime lead Norv Turner will resort to the "Plunge, Plunge, Pass" offensive system that went out of style in 1986. Third, the Chargers have difficulty stopping the run.

We'll delve deeper into these points tomorrow, but for now let's try and focus on the fact that the Chargers are 4-1 after 5 games instead of their usual 2-3.
