Denver Broncos vs. Los Angeles Chargers – Week 6 Betting Preview


Eleven days after the Denver Broncos started Week 5 with one of the ugliest Thursday Night Football games in recent memory, the team will finish the Week 6 schedule with another primetime matchup. Denver visits the Los Angeles Chargers Monday night, hoping to turn its season around.


Maybe Russell Wilson’s poor play can be partially attributed to an injury near his throwing shoulder, for which the quarterback reportedly just underwent a procedure to relieve discomfort. The ailment still doesn’t explain all of Wilson’s questionable decision-making during the Broncos’ 2-3 start. If Denver can upset Los Angeles, the Broncos will take over second place in the AFC West from the Chargers.

Let’s take a look at some key statistics and information about this matchup.
