Broncos build 14-point lead

Yeah, it probably would have been better for the Chargers if they hadn’t already beaten the Broncos in their own building.

With no chance that Denver will be complacent after losing one month ago to the day at home to the Chargers and one year ago to the day to the Ravens in the divisional round, the Broncos have built a 14-0 lead six minutes left in the first half.

The latest score came via a nine-play, 57-yard drive, which ended with a three-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Peyton Manning to receiver Wes Welker.

The score gives Manning 57 touchdown passes for the regular season and postseason, which according to CBS breaks the record of 56 set by Dan Marino in 1984 and matched by Tom Brady in 2007.

The touchdown came after the Chargers missed a 53-yard field goal, following a Denver turnover.

While the game isn’t over, it could end up getting out of hand if the Chargers don’t score soon.

    They might need to score a few times. Peyton is on the sidelines making preparations for more scores at the moment. San Diego needs to hope for a strong gust to whisk those pages away from him.

    The Chargers wouldn’t be in the playoffs if Rigger Goodell and his goons didn’t usher them. The Steelers were robbed and everyone knows it.

    The Chiefs JV team would’ve been more competitive than the Chargers. The AFC had no 6th team deserving this year, it’s just the Chargers are filling the hole.

    12 playoff losses and nine one and dones for Manning by this time next week. NINE!
    Only fitting in a year where he broke records that he extends what I would say is his most impressive one. Nine one and dones is an accomplishment for the ages.

    :)- Have a nice day…

    Quit your crying, you know damn right well the reason the Steelers aren’t in the Playoffs. They started 0-4. Nobody’s fault but their own.
