Research Notes

  • Denver shut down San Diego's rushing game by penetrating the backfield. The Chargers were hit at or behind the line of scrimmage on nine of their 23 rushes, and rushed for at least five yards before being contacted only twice. The Broncos defense entered Sunday tied for second in the league with 2.1 yards before contact per rush.

  • Peyton Manning completed 84.2 percent of his passes when the Chargers sent four or fewer pass rushers on Sunday, but struggled against added pressure. Manning was sacked or under duress on 21.7 percent of dropbacks when the Chargers sent extra rushers and failed to complete half of his passes against such pressure for just the second time this season.

  • Von Miller has 3 sacks vs the Chargers, giving him 24.5 for his career in his 25th game. The only player with more sacks in his first 25 career games is Derrick Thomas (25).
