San Diego is on fire this year. Fans, coaches and players alike were inspired by the game the Chargers played on Monday against the Denver Broncos. The team really showed the nation that despite a mediocre record of 5-5, they still have what it takes to take their division. Being the favorites heading into this match-up, they stepped forward with some initial inspiration. Another motivating factor was a bit of pre-game taunting from the Broncos. Denver gave San Diego a chance to retaliate when taunting the team with a few “disrespectful” chants. In the end, that strategy back fired on the Broncos. The Chargers gathered their momentum to take the game. It all came to an end at 35-14 after an exciting four quarters. NFL spreads.
With this game, the Chargers are now tied for second place with the Oakland Raiders atop the AFC West. San Diego is coming into its own. As coach Norv Turner put it, “We’re coming together as a team. We can continue to get better, but I think we are playing our best football.” While a team working together always yields good results, when San Diego does it the outcome is spectacular! That is largely due to the many impressive players that are on the roster. One of those players is QB Phillip Rivers. Already leading the NFL with 3,117 passing yards, he yielded 233 yards, 4 touchdowns and 1 interception for his team. NFL lines.
This amazing player has produced positive results for the Chargers since 2004, and it doesn’t look he’s going to stop anytime soon. However, Rivers was not the only player that did well on Monday. Tolbert came through with 111 yards on 24 carries and one touchdown, while Crayton went for 105 yards, 1 touchdown and 3 yards receiving. Overall, the Chargers did quite well, and that was without star player Antonio Gates. NFL betting lines.
Already sitting at the bottom of the AFC West, the Broncos plummeted to 3-7. It looks like that pre-game teasing did them no good. While Kyle Orton tried his best, Denver proved ineffective against San Diego. Be sure to follow these two teams at www.scoresandodds.com, the best source for online betting information.
