Los Angeles Chargers vs Denver Broncos : The Denver Broncos are 6-9 and have little to play for other than pride in Week 17, while the Los Angeles Chargers are 11-4 and could have homefield advantage throughout the playoffs on the line. Those two facts could make Sunday a difficult day for Broncos Country to watch their favorite team.

The Denver Broncos host the Los Angeles Chargers for Week 17 of the NFL season. Kickoff is set for 2:25 p.m. at Broncos Stadium at Mile High. As a group, the pessimism is strong this week and we’ve got a combined 26-14 Chargers road blowout of the Broncos. However, there is one of us who thinks the Broncos will come out on top.
For whatever reason, the Broncos make it a clean sweep of the Chargers in 2018 – much to the chagrin of draftniks everywhere. Vance Joseph’s parting gift to Broncos Country will be the 16th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft instead of the 8th pick and ensures the Kansas City Chiefs will have an easy road to a Super Bowl title. Thanks for everything, Vance! – Tim Lynch
The Broncos have nothing to play for, and the Chargers could still end up with the number one seed in the division. Denver will probably be looking to get some of the young guys a chance at some NFL snaps, and as I said on the MHR Radio Podcast
The Broncos are so banged up they have nearly an entire starting 11 on the IR and if you have seen Case Keenum’s post game interviews lately, he’s not a spring chicken either. The Chargers have a lot to play for and could vastly improve their seeding with a win and some help from the other AFC playoff teams. In the end, talent is what wins games and L.A has vastly more of it on the field at the moment than Denver.
As the 27-14 loss to the Oakland Raiders proved Monday, there is no doubt that lame duck head coach Vance Joseph has worn out his welcome. Losses to sub-.500 teams on the season (the 49ers, Jets, at the time, the Browns, and now the Raiders) which have seen a listless Broncos team come out will not be tolerated.
The fans who are clinging to the delusional “never lose no matter what” will be among the 1,500 going down with that ship. You may think it’s admirable, but at the end of the day, the fans in the life boat have a future and you, well, you’re at the bottom of the ocean. To me
