The Denver Broncos visit SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California on Sunday to play the Los Angeles Chargers. Denver dropped to 7-8 following a 17-13 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday and have seen their playoff hopes nearly lost with two consecutive losses. The Broncos have very faint playoff hopes but need to win each of the last two and several other teams must lose.

Teddy Bridgewater has passed for 3,052 yards with 18 touchdowns and seven interceptions but has not played for two weeks with a concussion. Javonte Williams is the leading rusher for Denver with 827 yards and four touchdowns, while the leading receiver is Courtland Sutton with 703 yards and two touchdown receptions. On defense, Kareem Jackson is the leading tackler with 80 and Dre’Mont Jones is the leader in quarterback sacks with 5.5.

Los Angeles is 8-7 after falling to the Houston Texans 41-29 on Sunday. Los Angeles allowed 437 yards of total offense to Houston and the Chargers gained 417 yards of total offense but turned the ball over three times including a 48-yards pick-six late in the fourth quarter by Houston. Los Angeles remains in the playoff hunt but suffered a serious blow with the loss on Sunday.

Justin Herbert has passed for 4,394 yards with 33 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Austin Ekeler is the leading rusher with 789 yards and 10 touchdowns, while the leading receiver is Keenan Allen with 1,042 yards and five touchdown receptions.
