Thursday Night Football: Chargers at Broncos Open Thread

Philip Rivers will try to avenge his team's loss earlier in the season to the Peyton Manning led-Broncos earlier this year when they travel to Denver on Thursday Night Football. - Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

Thursday Night Football Open Thread.

The San Diego Chargers (6-7) will try to climb into the wildcard race they sit only a game out of on the road against the team with the best record in the AFC, the Denver Broncos (11-2), at Mile High Stadium on Thursday Night Football.

Game Time: 8:25 p.m. ET

TV: NFL Network

Online: Audio Pass | Game Rewind

Odds: Broncos -10

Will the Chargers defense have any answer for a Broncos offense that will be missing Pro Bowl slot receiver Wes Welker but still has the number-one ranked offense in football? Or will MVP favorite Peyton Manning struggle without Welker although he will still have some of the better weapons on the field in Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas and Eric Decker? Will the Chargers keep pace with the points the Broncos put up, as they also have a strong offense with Philip Rivers playing at a Pro Bowl level? Use this as an Open Thread to discuss the action.
