"We know next week is as close to a must-win as it gets," says San Diego safety Erick Weddle. "We'll turn around and regroup."
Chargers tight end Antonio Gates had two touchdown catches against Denver in the season's first meeting and now has 80 for his career. Gates needs one more touchdown catch to equal Lance Alworth's team-record of 81 career touchdown catches.
The Broncos are streaking as the team has won four in a row. Last week, quarterback Peyton Manning threw for 301 yards and a touchdown in Denver's 36-14 win at Carolina. Manning's touchdown was the 420th of his career, tying Pro Football Hall of Famer Dan Marino for the second-most in NFL history. The victory was Manning's 147th, tying Marino for third all-time.
"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.
