He'll likely start the season as the team's nickel back.
A huge match in the AFC West will be played at Sports Authority Field in Denver, Colorado.
Needless to say, this game truly is a must-win for both the Broncos and Chargers. "We'd want to stay in the same city, but I'd have a long way to go". The last two seasons he was injured by injuries and did not play much, as well as not seeming to himself when he did. While the Broncos defense is better than the Chargers offense, I believe their offense pales in comparison to the Chargers offense because of their questions on the offensive line and at QB. Stafford, who led the Lions back from a 17-15 fourth-quarter deficit, has 27 game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime since 2011, the most such drives by a quarterback in the National Football League over the span. I would feel better if Lamp was playing or if Tuerk and Feeney had played out of their minds in camp to get starting jobs. This should better complement C.J. Anderson's aggressive running style, as well as simplify matters for a revamped Denver offensive line. Allen tore his ACL during the season opener one year ago, and Monday night will mark his return.
The Broncos had the fourth-ranked overall defense in 2016, giving up only 316.1 yards per game, 185.8 passing yards per game (first), 130.3 rushing yards per game (28) and 18.6 points per game (fourth). For this meeting, the OddsShark computer is projecting a 11.5-28.9 Broncos victory, which would cover the spread and go under the 42-point total.
FAST FACTS: Chargers TE Antonio Gates, who is tied with Tony Gonzalez with 111 touchdown receptions, needs one more catch in the end zone to break the all-time record for most touchdowns by a tight end. The Broncos need wins in the division and wins at home if they're going to be the team they've said they are. On the other side of the ball, Siemian is still unproven and the Broncos' backfield is completely up in the air. "However, it won't be enough to make the loss any less embarrassing". This year we've enlisted the help of Fernando Ramirez for a kind of back-and-forth analysis with Derek Togerson.
"I think they are going to crush the Vikings", he said.
All in all, an excellent field presence and with the feeling that there can be no doubt that he will be among the running backs that Vance Joseph, Broncos coach, will take with him throughout the year.
As for the second game in tonight's Week 1 Monday Night Football double-header, the divisional matchup between the LA Chargers and Denver Broncos is scheduled to get underway at 10:20pm ET.
And it gives the Broncos an immediate opportunity to fix one of the things that got away from them in last season's 9-7 finish - their record in AFC West games.
