Penalties and missed opportunities led to the Chargers' demise as they dropped their season opener on the road against the Denver Broncos 24-21. Charles brought the Broncos to the 1-yard line for first-and-goal. Broncos head coach Vance Joseph iced the rookie kicker with a timeout, then enjoyed his first career National Football League coaching win as Shelby Harris blocked the second attempt. You know, you can feel them.

Philip Rivers caught fire in the fourth quarter and guided the Chargers into range for a game-tying field goal. The members of Chargers Nation were all rooting for the same team, but they are certainly not grieving in the same ways.

The strongest moments of Siemian's night were on the long drives, which included six third-down conversions by his arm, two touchdown passes, a rushing touchdown and a few other impressive scrambles.

-The Broncos narrowly averted blowing a 17-point, fourth-quarter lead for the first time in their history. "I hope it's a good game, but I'm not losing any sleep over it". Being that it's week one and the majority of both teams are still intact I'll say the Bolts win 31-24.

While the Broncos made gains against the run after in inauspicious start, the team's pass defense continued to be customarily stingy.

"I've been on the same page with Trev now for three years".

Denver Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian (13) is sacked as Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Corey Liuget (94) and defensive end Joey Bosa (99) pursue during the second half of an NFL football game, Monday, Sept. 11, 2017, in Denver.

Bradford looked more like Drew Brees in the pocket, leading the Vikings on a three-play, 74-yard touchdown drive and 10-play 95-yard touchdown drive late in the second quarter to give the Vikings a 16-6 half-time lead. He did, though, prove to be a valuable weapon in the passing game, catching five balls for 25-yards and a touchdown.

It's good to get a little lucky sometimes. "We'll take it however we can get it". We have to find those guys and dial up plays for them.

The amusing thing is, Siemian probably would've been a better quarterback than Manning that season considering Manning posted a 67.9 passer rating and Siemian's career passer rating is 85.1.

Matt Bryant kicked three field goals, with Devonta Freeman also running in a five-yard score for the visitors, while touchdowns from Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen and a Connor Barth field goal were in vain for the Bears.

Since the Chargers announced in January the team's intentions to move to Los Angeles, NFL players and fans are still coming to terms with the team being in L.A., with several still referring to the San Diego Chargers.

The Denver Broncos fended off a furious comeback Monday night.

Nine plays later, however, Los Angeles found the back of the end zone for the first time this season.

"We got a good push on every field goal today". The Broncos can't, and won't, count on field goal kickers missing chip shots the rest of the season. Denver faces the Dallas Cowboys in Week 2.
