We’re into Week 15 of the NFL season and slowly but surely we have reached the crunch games as far as the playoff picture is concerned. One team certain to play a prominent role in the postseason are the Broncos and it is Mile High Stadium in Denver that plays host to the weekend’s opener on Thursday. Quarterback superstar Peyton Manning and his boys welcome AFC West rival San Diego confident of putting up another impressive showing to add to their Conference-best 11-2 record.
The Broncs have bounced back from a tough overtime loss at New England in Week 12 by beating both the Chiefs and the Titans in the last two weeks. Manning has led the way in style throwing nine TDs in those two games and he will be looking forward to facing a Chargers’ defense that he dissected with ease in a 28-20 road win at San Diego in Week 10.
For the visitors, Thursday’s game could yet prove to be the key to their faint playoff hopes. Their 6-7 record currently sees them sitting in eighth place in the AFC, but a win at the mighty Broncos would prove such a confidence-booster that anything could still be possible. All that being said, the hosts have a perfect 7-0 record in front of their own fans and they don’t have intention of putting a blemish on that…!
