Up next: Broncos at Chargers, Week 9.
Another road game, another big turnout by Broncos Country. The lower level of Qualcomm Stadium showed an equal number of Peyton Manning jerseys as Philip Rivers jerseys. The Broncos’ first game without John Fox ended with Manning limping off the field after a big hit by the Chargers’ Corey Liuget. In a hospital room in Charlotte, Fox probably ordered more painkillers.
The date: Nov. 10.
The game: Broncos 28, Chargers 20.
The site: Qualcomm Stadium.
The notable: On the Broncos’ extensive travel schedule — from New Jersey to Houston to the West Coast — the dumpiest stadiums reside in California (San Francisco, Oakland, San Diego). Why is that?
