Oh how familiar this scenario must look for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. It’s almost as if there is some type of deja vu going on here. The Broncos found themselves in this same exact spot last this time last year. They were 13-3 in the regular season and start off the playoffs in the divisional round because of a first round bye.
The pressure has got to be on the Broncos right?
Just think if the great Peyton Manning goes down two years in a row with an unbelievable team to a wild card team in the San Diego Chargers. This is not just an ordinary Chargers team though, no not so fast. San Diego is the only team to beat the Denver Broncos in that vaunted climate in Mile High Stadium.
Still with all this said the edge still goes to the Denver Broncos. Peyton Manning is not going to take the Charges lightly. The Broncos passing game is just too overwhelming for the Chargers secondary. The Broncos will get back Manning’s favorite target in Wes Welker. This should provide an ample boost that Denver needs to outscore the Chargers.
This game could very well come down to a shootout between the two high powered offenses. If it comes down to this you have to trust in the guru Peyton Manning. Denver gets the slight edge in this game but they cannot overlook this Chargers team who has all the momentum in the world right now.
