Broncos Hang On to Edge Chargers

Keenan Allen is healthy again and in his absence last season, Tyrell Williams emerged as a legit National Football League wide receiver.

It wasn't a game with the ridiculous stats that Alex Smith or Sam Bradford put up, but Siemian was efficient, threw two touchdown passes, ran one in, and his only interception of the day was a goofy tip drill that bounced off two shoes. New head coach Anthony Lynn was smart enough (or maybe ownership was) to keep the offensive staff, led by offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, in town. "It would just be two coaches going at it, and may the best team win".

Today's game between the Denver Broncos and the LA Chargers has a scheduled start time of 10.20 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on the ESPN network.

Vance Joseph's icing of Koo made him a victor in his head coaching debut with the Broncos and allowed Denver to withstand a furious fourth-quarter rally led by the Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. And once again, Rivers started moving the ball.

Lost in his calm demeanor - his Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald told me Siemian is "cool like Luke Bryan" - rages a competitive inferno. Both teams are looking for successful seasons so they can make their way back to the playoffs.

You know that famous quote from the movie The Dark Knight when police commissioner Jim Gordon says, "He's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now", when referring to Batman? We did some good things. Siemian had a pass bounce off Chargers safety Desmond King's shoe and into the hands of teammate Adrian Phillips. However, cornerback Casey Hayward read the play and bolted in front of Anderson in flawless position for the interception, along with a clear path to the end zone.

The Chargers then forced a second straight turnover when linebacker Korey Toomer stripped the ball from Jamaal Charles, with Hayward scooping it up and returning it 11 yards. Travis Benjamin, Keenan Allen and Melvin Gordon were all recipients of passes who found the end zone.

Just five minutes after they were trailing by 17 points, the Chargers were now only down a field goal.

Two head coaching debuts and the first woman to call a nationally televised NFL game made Monday night a historical one. In the series the Broncos have the edge, leading 63-50-1, and they will be favorites to claim the victory here today at Sports Authority Field.

"It's unfortunate", Koo said. At least that's what it looked like to me because it was going right down the middle.

Philip Rivers brought the game within three on the very next play.

"There are some things we could've done better to help ourselves", Lynn said. "The Dolphins are in town waiting for us and they don't care about this game or how we feel".

Rivers was 22-for-33 for 185 yards, three touchdowns and an interception.
