Five keys to the game for when the Broncos visit LA this weekend.
Justin Herbert has thrown 2 picks 4 times this season. The Chargers are 0-4 in those games. He tossed 2 the last time these teams met and 2 last week. Herbert usually follows up bad games with great ones. That works for Boltz fans.
The Broncos D has is having a very good year. They are not afraid of high-powered offenses. Patrick Surtain II and company are active in the turnover department and will make you pay if you test them too many times. You can move the ball on them however.
Austin Eckler is slated to return this week giving the Boltz a great 1-2 punch as Justin Jackson was great in relief. The Broncos have had trouble stopping the run of late. A strong ground game will allow their passing game to get deep.
Joey Bosa is back from COVID and boy, do the Chargers need him having given up some huge games to RB's recently. They can't afford to do that to the Broncos. If the Chargers D can make Denver 1-dimensional it gets the W.
The last time these two teams played Herbert was sacked three times and intercepted twice. Rookie Rashawn Slater and company have seen the beast. Can they now respond, get the ground game going and protect?
The former number one NFL Draft pick is now a Bronco and NEVER underestimate the revenge factor when a talented player faces his old team.
