The Denver Broncos are back on a losing streak as they return home to host the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 13 in a battle for the AFC West cellar.

The Denver Broncos are coming off their worst - by far - performance as a team in 2019, at least according to the most recent DVOA rankings for last week. At 3-8, the Broncos are searching for answers as they host the 4-7 Los Angeles Chargers for a battle for the AFC West cellar.

Word on whether Drew Lock will be the teams starter this week is expected on Friday, but that will unlikely to spark this team on any kind of run as rookie quarterbacks tend to do rookie quarterback kinds of things.

Game Preview

The bigger concern for Denver right now is injuries on that defense.

On defense, the Broncos could be without Von Miller and Alexander Johnson. Shelby Harris was also hobbled, but was limited on Thursday and looks like he’ll be able to go on Sunday. Even so, not having one of the best edge rushers in the game and Johnson, who really helped stabilize this defensive unit early in the season, is going to be tough to overcome.

Philip Rivers under duress is the best way to ensure he throws an untimely sack, but without Miller that gets a lot harder to do.

On the offensive side of the ball, if Drew Lock gets the start then the success on offense will flow through his right arm and the creative playcalling of Rich Scangarello. If I were him, I’d feature Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman early and often regardless of the score.

Here is how to watch.

Odds

The Broncos odds have steadily gotten worse since opening slight home underdogs to the 4-7 Chargers this week. The line has shifted to three points in favor of Los Angeles. This line probably has a lot to do with the likelihood that Drew Lock will be making his first start and a quarterbacks first start can be quite unpredictable for predictions sake.

Matchup History

The Broncos and Chargers have a long history together with Denver holding a 66-52-1 advantage. Interestingly, the rivalry has been like a pendulum that swings back and forth between the two with one of the team teams dominating the other for years at a time. Currently, the Broncos have taken the pendulum back since 2011 having won 13 of the last 17 that includes four of the last six.

Hot Reads

Fan Sentiment

Predictably, fan confidence has plummeted a bit this week after the teams 20-3 beatdown at the Buffalo Bills last week. However, now as much as I would have thought. It would seem the idea of Drew Lock starting has some fans anxious and excited to see the 2019 second round draft pick get on the field.
