The San Diego Chargers are set to take on the Denver Broncos in a Week 15 matchup on Thursday Night Football. The Chargers are 6-7 on the season, essentially out of the playoff race, but beating their AFC West rivals is always an important task. Unfortunately for them, the Broncos aren't exactly a pushover.
Denver is 11-2, in first place in the division and riding a two-game winning streak. Quarterback Peyton Manning has his sights set on breaking the NFL's record for passing touchdowns in a single season, and with the Chargers, Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders remaining on the schedule, it seems likely he'll get it as he marches into the playoffs.
Unsurprisingly, the experts favor the Broncos in this matchup. Just about everyone does, in fact. When it comes to SB Nation's panel of six experts -- Ryan Van Bibber, Joel Thorman, Jason Chilton, Stephen White, David Fucillo and Matt Ufford -- all picked the Broncos to hold at home in prime time. Shocked?
The story is the same over at CBS Sports, where all eight of their experts are picking the Broncos as well. That includes guys like Pete Prisco, Jason La Canfora and Will Brinson. The Broncos are just too good it would seem, and they already bested the Chargers on the road this season.
