Chargers win third straight after dominating hapless Broncos

They're taking on the Chargers today in Los Angeles, playing in what will likely look like a mini mile high instead of the usual hostile road environment. LT Russell Okung, who was among NFL players to meet with NFL executives on Tuesday, raised his right fist during the national anthem. Thomas still doesn't have a touchdown catch six games into the season, Emmanuel Sanders will miss more games with an ankle injury and Denver's rout of the Cowboys seems like a long time ago. "I think we're desperate every week", Denver quarterback Trevor Siemian told reporters. "So we've obviously got issues that we need to address from the top down".

Quality passes from quarterback Philip Rivers to Antonio Gates and Keenan Allen that set up the 1-yard touchdown reception to Austin Eckler, for the 14-0 lead midway through the second quarter. Running back Melvin Gordon (356 rushing yards, tied for National Football League lead with seven total touchdowns) is nursing a tender shoulder after receiving 34 touches (25 rushes for 83 yards, nine catches for 67 yards) in last week's win over Oakland. "I felt up until five minutes to go, it was a game we could have won". "I don't know if I'll get more attention". We had some guys wide open.

On their last trip to the one, the Chargers ran into the Broncos' defensive line four times and failed to score.

The Stub Hub Center in Carson, California is the home field for the Los Angeles Chargers.

Though Denver inexplicably made Giants running back Orlean Darkwa look like an All-Pro last week, they're incredibly stout against the run overall and should be playing with a chip on their shoulder after a 23-10 loss to NY. After fielding the punt on a bounce, Benjamin zig-zagged twice and went in easily as the Chargers took a 7-0 lead in the opening quarter. They lost LG Matt Slauson to a biceps injury in the second half.

The Chargers will prepare for the Patriots next Sunday at Foxboro Stadium.
