Research Notes

  • The Broncos two remaining opponents are the Texans and Raiders, who are a combined 6-20. That's the easiest remaining strength of schedule in the NFL.

  • As the Chargers showed Thursday, there might be a formula on how to stop the Peyton Manning and the Broncos offense - keep them on the sideline. Denver ran a season-low 53 plays Thursday, the lowest by the Broncos since Week 6 of last season (52 also against the Chargers). The Broncos 21:11 time of possession was the lowest by an offense with Peyton Manning at the helm since Week 2 of 2009, when the Colts beat the Dolphins on Monday Night Football.

  • Ryan Mathews: 127 rushing yards for Chargers. He's the 1st player to rush for at least 100 yards in a game against the Broncos this season (last to do so in regular season was Jamaal Charles in 2012 Week 12-- 107 yards).Mathews' 127 yards were the most by anyone in a regular-season game against the Broncos since Stevan Ridley of the Patriots had 151 in 2012 Week 5. Ray Rice also had 131 rushing yards against the Broncos in last year's divisional playoff game.

  • With Manning and Rivers each throwing touchdown passes tonight...

  • Andre Caldwell's Rec TD in the 1st quarter was his 1st score since Week 1 against the Ravens...Since that game, 14 other Broncos had scored a touchdown including defenders Von Miller, Steven Johnson, and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
