San Diego Chargers (4-5) at Denver Broncos (6-3) In my Power Rankings this week I joked, “Why does it feel like the Chargers are going to lose to Denver, fall to 4-6, and then go on their annual late season run, finish 8-8 or 9-7, miss the playoffs barely, and save Norv Turner’s and AJ Smith’s jobs? Oh, that’s right, that happens every year.” Well, I’m not so sure that their annual late season run can’t start this week. It’s more likely that they drop this one and then go on their run, just because Denver is on a roll right now and their schedule gets easy after this one (home for Baltimore, and Cincinnati, at Pittsburgh, home for Carolina, at the Jets, home for Oakland), but you can rule out them winning this one or at least being competitive. The Chargers are road dogs after a road loss, a situation teams are 80-47 ATS in since 2008. Norv Turner is also 5-1 ATS in same season divisional revenge games, though it’s worth noting that teams are just 9-16 ATS trying to avenge a same se...

A pain in the neck: Ryan Matthews misses second straight practice

Maybe someday Ryan Matthews will shed the fragile label, but not in the near future. Matthews missed his second straight practice with a sore neck cause by a huge hit from Buccaneers linebacker Quincy Black. Mathews was drafted by the San Diego Chargers with the 12th overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft and named to the 2011 Pro-Bowl, but has had an injury marred career so far. ...

The Chargers face a touch match-up this week. Week 11 preview.

No chance the Chargers travel to Denver and beat Manning this week. After a rough Week 10, I'm sitting at 92-54-1.  Who wants to keep track of a tie. Let's see if I can turn this around this week. Arizona at Atlanta - The Cards need to get some production from the QB position if they want any chance to make playoff this season. The Falcons finally lost a...

Denver Broncos: Week 11 NFL Power Rankings (#5)

Last week: 5 (+0) Record: 6-3 It’s weird to say, but Tracy Porter getting sick was the turning point for their season. Obviously, I wish the best for Porter in his recovery from him mysterious illness, but as well as Peyton Manning is playing, they wouldn’t be a complete team if it weren’t for Chris Harris and Tony Carter stepping up and playing phenomenal in their secondary...

Miller, Vickerson say they'll appeal fines

Von Miller and Kevin Vickerson are appealing fines they said they received from the NFL for hits on Carolina quarterback Cam Newton last weekend. Miller's $21,000 fine was for a low hit, but Denver's star linebacker insists he was blocked into Newton and didn't come anywhere near his knees. Vickerson's $15,000 fine was for a horse collar tackle that he insists was...

Williams returns to active roster

Linebacker D.J. Williams is on track to make his 2012 debut Sunday against San Diego after the Denver Broncos put him on their 53-man roster Saturday. Williams returned to practice this week after serving two NFL-mandated suspensions that cost him nine games and about $4 million. On Friday, coach John Fox said Williams had looked good in practice all week ''and he's...

Manning vs. Luck: The 6-3 Kids

A little over a year ago Peyton Manning was sitting on the sidelines still in Indianapolis Colt attempting to recover from painful neck surgery. Manning did his best to give advice to back-up quarterback Curtis Painter, who in all respect is probably a painter at this point in time considering we all know how well he was able to lead the disastrous Indy squad last year. At the same...
