Broncos highly impressive .... for most of the night against the Chargers

There wasn't much running to be done by the Chargers in the second half, not with Los Angeles facing a 17-point deficit at the start of the fourth quarter.

Before agreeing to a deal with Denver to coach the team back in January, Joseph spent time as a defensive coordinator with the Miami Dolphins previous year. Things were looking good until the last 12 minutes of the game, when Denver was unable to convert a trip into the red zone.

The Chargers open the season Monday night against the division rival Denver Broncos on the road at Sports Authority Field.

It appears some of the Broncos' rushing woes may have been fixed.

While Ryan was correct in recalling that Gotsis had picked up a knee injury in college, he may want to have another look at the 2016 draft, where Gotsis was picked up by the Broncos.in the second round. Outside linebackers Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram both had 1.5 sacks and defensive end Chris McCain made up the remaining sack. The right side of the line did not perform as well, as Malik Watson allowed a few quarterback hurries and hits. The second-year quarterback threw a gift-wrapped pick-six to Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward. However, the tides quickly turned. To this point, it's been Gordon or nothing for the Chargers, who are struggling to hold back the flood of Broncos defenders early in this game. Despite McCoy's reputation for spreading it out and throwing the rock around-they did that too-the Broncos methodically carved out 140 yards on the ground, averaging almost four yards per carry. Performances like that, with the kind of defense the Broncos have, could get them into the postseason.

Their absences moved Shelby Harris, a fourth-year end, into the starting lineup and prompted the team to promote rookie Tyrique Jarrett from the practice squad in place of Kyle Peko, who was waived Saturday and was signed to the team's practice squad Monday after clearing waivers. Then the offense started to putter out and the defense began to give up big plays.

He hadn't played great to this point, but Philip Rivers wouldn't be denied when given new life.

In a battle of two first-year head coaches, the Denver Broncos' Vance Joseph came away as the victor over Anthony Lynn of the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Broncos edged the Los Angeles Chargers late Monday night 24-21 in Denver.

Cody Latimer continues to shine on special teams.

Tucker rounded off the scoring in the third quarter with another field goal as Dalton suffered a bad night with four interceptions and one fumble.

But even the best defense is vulnerable when the opposing offense is gifted quality field position.

Vance Joseph is undefeated so far in his National Football League head coaching career. More important to Siemian, it should ensure that he keeps his job over Lynch.

Joe Woods did a decent job of containing the Chargers.

Still, Joseph conceded that it's a balancing act for the Broncos when it comes to monitoring snaps for their best player.

It was a game that had no business being close.

Up next for Broncos is a Week 2 showdown with the Cowboys.
