Denver Broncos interim coach/defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio joked Wednesday that he will have “very little” input into the offensive side of the ball. “We have good people there, they’re doing their job,” Del Rio said, via the team’s website. “I will be in charge of game-day decisions.” Del Rio said he will handle the head-coach duties, which include decisions like going for it on fourth-and-1 or sending in the kicking unit. “I think we’ve got a good group; we’ve got a good veteran core and good leaders we’ve talked about, a good staff,” Del Rio said. “I think what happens is typically what happens when something goes on that causes a void, that we all work hard to kind of collectively fill the void and help each other out. That’s really the sense that I get.” Quarterback Peyton Manning is impressed with how well Del Rio has handled practice this week. “It’s very easy to see why he’s been a head coach for 10-plus years,” Manning said. “He’s got great leadership, good command of the room and Jack’s a good leader. I think guys will answer the bell and follow him.” Del Rio already notices his players are stepping up in Fox’s absence. “We were very businesslike,” Del Rio said. “I think our guys were attentive in meetings and came out and practiced well, practiced with spirit, practiced with the focus we need to have to get ourselves ready. I think that’s really what it’s about – something occurs, and you’ve got to adjust and then how do you handle it? Can you get your focus back and get back in the groove and do the things you need to do? I feel really good about the way it started this week.” Del Rio was 69-73 with Jacksonville and led the Jaguars to the playoffs twice as a wild-card team.

Denver Broncos at San Diego Chargers: 2013 Week 10 NFL Pick

Denver Broncos (7-1) at San Diego Chargers (4-4) Dominant teams usually play very well off of a bye. Since 2002, road favorites of 3.5 or more are 29-8 ATS since 2002, including 12-1 ATS in a divisional game. This makes sense. Dominant teams are better suited to using an extra week off. Peyton Manning, for instance, is 9-1 ATS off of a regular season bye since 2004, in his last 10...
