The Denver Broncos reasserted themselves as the victors of Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Not only did the final score of 31-28 highlight their remarkable resilience, but it was made even more stunning by the fact that the Chargers foolishly kept their starters playing for most of the match despite having already secured their post-season position.
This win also marked a bright spot in an otherwise dismal season as it brought with it four touchdowns – the Broncos’ biggest tally yet. The Denver Broncos’ final two games of the season under Jerry Rosburg produced the same number of touchdowns as the first six games did under former head coach Nathanial Hackett.
