key duel

LBs Alex Singleton and Jonas Griffith vs. RB Austin Ekeler

Ekeler set a career high with 173 rushing yards last week against Cleveland, and his 199 combined yards in that game are the most by any player in the NFL this season.

The Broncos’ defense must pay special attention to the Chargers’ running back and that responsibility will fall to Singleton and Griffith, in the absence of Josey Jewell (knee).



Russell Wilson strained a muscle in his right shoulder two weeks ago in Las Vegas. To play against Indianapolis he had to be injected; He finished that game with 21 of 39, 274 yards, no touchdowns, two interceptions and a 54.9 rating, the lowest in the campaign.

Denver lost left tackle Garett Bolles (ankle), when running back Javonte Williams (knee) and cornerback ronald darby (anterior cruciate ligament) in the two most recent games.


Right tackle is expected Trey Pipkins III he returns after spraining his MCL in the game against Cleveland.

the wide receiver Keenan Allen (hamstring) is in doubt tonight and will likely miss his fifth straight game.


Russell Wilson he’s not 100% and it’s obvious he’s not comfortable in his new team’s offense either. Denver depends on his defense, but Justin Herbert has more than one weapon at his disposal on the Chargers offense, which must win by at least one touchdown on Monday Night Football. Chargers 20-13 Denver
