Open Thread: San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos, 1st Half

On Thursday Night Football, the San Diego Chargers and their tiny chance at making the playoffs will attempt to make a statement game in Denver against the Broncos. Chat along here while watching the game.

On a cold December evening in Denver, the 2013 San Diego Chargers will try to prove themselves.

They'll try to prove that they're not the team that lost to the Washington Redskins, or the team that was embarrassed by the Oakland Raiders.

They'll try to prove that they're a team that has finally gotten it together. They've finally gotten on the same page, gotten healthy enough, and the first-year coaching staff has figured it all out.

They're not the team that came out of the bye week looking as if they had never played the game of football before, they're the offensive juggernaut that is crafty enough on defense to beat any team in a shootout. They come loaded for bear with young studs like Keenan Allen, Ladarius Green and Ryan Mathews.

Philip Rivers is their ringleader. The Broncos are their target. The goal is to keep hope alive for one more night.

Go Chargers.
