If you are seeing RED in your region in the map above, then you will get a chance to see the Broncos potentially get that first win on your local CBS affiliate. Alaska and Hawaii won’t be getting any Denver love this week.
The Denver Broncos (0-4) take their eight game losing streak on the road against their AFC West rival Los Angeles Chargers (2-2) where they will continue to seek their first victory in a very, very long time.
Philip Rivers was asked about the Broncos 0-4 start and saw plenty of similarities between this team and the Chargers team in 2017 that started 0-4 and then finished 9-7. A commenter in that post, GearsofTed, pointed out how crazy those similarities were:
Week 1. Chargers lose on the road on the late Monday night game to a divisional opponent in a one score game where they allowed 24 points. Broncos did the same.
Week 2. Chargers lose by 2 points at the last second in their first home game of the year, where they allowed under 20 points. Broncos did the same.
Week 3. Chargers lose by two scores in a game that was a one score game for most of it. Plagued by turnovers that sealed the win for their opponent. Broncos did the same.
Week 4. Chargers again lose at home by 2 points, by a score of 26-24, sending them to 0-4. Broncos did the exact same.
Here’s to duplicating that first-win scenario for the Broncos this week against the team that did it two years ago.
Kickoff is set for Sunday, October 6, 2019 at 2:05 p.m. Mile High time at ROKiT Field at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.
