The Broncos pushed hard the past 3 seasons, posting 13 more wins than the Chargers. It was not meant to be, however, and the Chargers held on to a 2 game lead and the #4 seed. The Broncos were besmirched again in the wild card race, finishing 1 game behind the Ravens but still good enough for the #6 seed.

The only thing I feel is a certainty when it comes to the Chargers starting five on the offensive line: King Dunlap is a lock at left tackle, Orlando Franklin is their starting left guard. As for the rest, from D.J. Fluker, Chris Watt and Joe Barksdale to Johnnie Troutman when/if he returns, it all remains to be seen

He did have a key drop earlier in the game but recovered by showing great speed and movement on his touchdown reception.
