I called a win on Friday’s Morning Huddle radio program - and I said it would be 24-21, with Brandon McManus getting some redemption with a last-second game-winner.
I’m not going to Vegas, but I will call out my MHR colleagues - who I love dearly - for their lack of belief in this team - lol.
Of course the Broncos had a lot of help from a bonehead incomplete pass by Philip Rivers on the Chargers’ final drive that helped ensure the Broncos offense getting the ball back, as well as 4,000 yards worth of penalties from the Chargers, but that wouldn’t even be the point.
The point is that the Broncos worked with what they had, and when it counted, the team hung in there and came through with a big comeback against an AFC West rival - and on the road, no less.
So celebrate it, Broncos Country.
There’s plenty of time to complain about everything else later - as I know you will - but you can bet the players are NOT doing that.
Great team win. And congratulations to my little big brother @VonMiller on getting to 100 sacks in his 8th year. It’s an honor to take the field with you fam.— Derek Wolfe (@Derek_Wolfe95) November 19, 2018

And a couple of heavy hitters from former Broncos teams weighed in on the win as well.
Be mad that this doesn’t help the Broncos in their quest for a higher draft pick if you want.
But I’m going to be like this:
