Sometimes you sit down to play a game and, in your mind, you feel that it will be kind of a tedious exercise. That’s how I felt when this game popped up on my schedule. And, then you start rolling and you end up with a classic battle! The Chargers and Broncos faced off in an elimination game, and we had a little bit of everything! Two running-backs who each had four rushing touchdowns, eight starters who were hurt during the contest, and a remarkable 4th quarter comeback forcing overtime!
L.A.’s Austin Ekeler scampered 61 yards for a TD on his very first carry, ended up the day with 162 yards rushing and scored the last of his 4 touchdowns in overtime to lead the Chargers past Denver 42-35.
But, the Broncos had nearly a miracle comeback, scoring four touchdowns in the final quarter to force overtime. I do overtime like they do in college, and Los Angeles scored on their initial possession. When Denver had their chance, unfortunately, Joe Flacco tossed an interception to end the game.
But this one was way more fun and entertaining than I would have ever expected!! Kind of why we play these games!!!
