Despite the Broncos' struggles at times this year, including a 31-21 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 5, Peyton Manning's team can take control of the top spot in the division with a win over the Chargers on Monday night. The Chargers have won four of the last five meetings between the teams, however, and Norv Turner's teams are 4-1 against Manning when he was with the Colts.
The Chargers, meanwhile, look to get an increased workload from running back Ryan Mathews, who rushed for 80 yards and a touchdown on 12 attempts against the New Orleans Saints in Week 5. The Broncos allowed 252 yards rushing against the Patriots and will have to find a way to stop Matthews, who has averaged over five yards per carry the past two weeks.
San Diego is looking to prove itself as a legitimate contender on Monday night, with all three wins this season coming against sub-par teams while losing to the Atlanta Falcons and Saints.
