"This team has improved and we're developing some type of chemistry," says Manning. "We still have some things that we can do better. Any time you can learn a little bit about each other, make some progress and win some games, that's a good thing. But we still need to get better, especially down this homestretch."
The last time that the Chargers took on the Broncos, Denver QB Peyton Manning engined a comeback from 24-0 deficit, passing for 309 yards & 3 TDs for 129 passer rating.
