    Official Game Day Thread: Week 8: 2014 The Chargers vs Broncos

    Hey Broncomaniacs,

    Welcome to an early game day thread to start of week 8 as the Broncos take on their AFC west rivals the San Diego Chargers on a Thursday Night Matchup. It has been a great few days with Peyton setting the new TD record.

    I hate Thursday games, I think the teams playing have not recovered from the prior Sunday and there is a sloppier level of play and more risk of injury. The upside is having a few extra days off to prepare for the next week.

    So how do we do in week 7 games? The answer is not well at all. In fact the 7th game of a season is usually when we play our worse ball, throw in an early week game and that can spell trouble. In fact in the last decade we have lost game seven 9 out of 10 times. 5 losses on the road, and 4 at home, the only win was against the Saints two years ago.

    Some of the losses I remember well.
    2004 A Monday night loss to the Bengals as they were finally given a prime time game.
    2005 Giants rallied from behind with Eli Manning to beat the Plummer led Broncos with 5 seconds left on the clock.
    2006 A loss to Peyton Mannings colts,
    2007 The Packers beat us at home with a 82 yard bomb to Greg Jennings in OT
    2008 The Cassell led Pats crushed us 41 - 7 with 5 take a ways
    2009 The Ravens crushed us 30 - 7 starting Josh McDaniels/Ortons down fall
    2010 The Raiders humiliate us at home 59-14
    2011 The Lions thump us 45-10 at home, for this 4 year game 7 span we were outscored (175 / 38)
    2012. Manning leads us past the Sean Peytonless - Saints 34-14
    2103 The Andrew Luck Colts beat us 39-33 and it really wasn't that close of a game.

    So do not take this game 7 lightly. The Chargers are dangerous, they are coming off a loss and they beat us at our own stadium last year. They are fairly close to us in passing and rushing yards per game.

    Manning is on fire, the run game is coming along and the defense has been playing great, ket's hope it continues. A win will give us a 2 game lead in the West The Chargers will need to play keep away which was how they beat us last season. It worked for them against Seattle as well. Mike McCoy knows Peyton and the San Diego defense is pretty good even with Flowers out. Last year the CHargers played us 3 times and held us below 30 points all 3 times. It will be great to see how Julius Thomas (10 TDS) stacks up in a game vs Antonio Gates.

    Rivers has passed for for over 275+ yards only once in his last 11 games vs Denver. He has 6TD and 6 turnover in his last 4 road games with Denver. Broncos only allow 71 rushing yards at home this season. Gates has only 1 TD in 9 career road games vs Denver.

    Let''s hope for a good game, no injuries and a "W". Hopefully we don't beat ourselves. Win or Lose please watch what you post, follow the COC and report any violations to the Mod staff. I hope everyone has a Happy Halloween and as always GO BRONCOS!!
