Before we get into the SO.MUCH.FUN.TO.GET.A.WIN Twitter reactions to the Broncos’ 23-22 victory over the Chargers, I’d like to point out two things:
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.
Also, to all my @MileHighReport colleagues who ALL picked a loss except me... pic.twitter.com/DgyX7XV7s8— Doctor of Words (and tights) (@docllv) November 19, 2018
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.

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:
