Los Angeles Chargers at Denver Broncos - 9/11/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Los Angeles Chargers at Denver Broncos - 9/11/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction”

KEYS TO THE GAME: In a game that features two new coaches, Vance Joseph for the Broncos and Anthony Lynn for the Chargers, an old storyline could help determine the victor: Which team wins at the line of scrimmage? Might have to struggle to get to work on Tuesday morning.

The Los Angeles Chargers and Denver Broncos have the chance to close out the first week of NFL football with style, as they are the late game on ESPN's Monday Night Football. This will be a battle of first year head coaches as Vance Joseph takes his team to battle against Anthony Lynn. Denver is also 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven versus the AFC. The fact that McCoy's just above average team went 1-1 against Denver was actually an impressive feat. Let us dive into the Week One preview.

Obviously a stagnant scheme isn't going to get the job done, which is why McCoy's will change as the season progresses. The Broncos are counting on his tenacity and energy being positives while Bolles learns how to avoid penalties - something that was a problem in their second preseason game when he was whistled for holding three times in the first half. It will be very important for him to get off to a solid start. He spent the offseason getting his shoulder repaired that got hurt in Week Four of past year.

If the offensive line can keep him upright, I believe that he can impress under Mike McCoy's offense. Rivers nearly never disappoints when his team turns to him to score in the final minutes and Monday night's game will be no different.

Brock Osweiler, who was Peyton Manning's longtime backup in Denver before signing a free-agent deal with Houston and then being traded in the offseason to Cleveland, was re-signed to back up Siemian after the Browns cut him.

Joseph succeeded Gary Kubiak, who resigned one season after leading the Broncos to a Super Bowl title because of health issues. After the 18 months he had, he appears humble to return. So when Booker returns, that's four backs the Broncos would feel just fine about handing the ball to. Hopefully he is not given a whole lot of trouble. This is a game that is more than likely going to be a grind it out, hard nose contest that is going to come down to the wire. If it can just get some improvement in its quarterback play, Denver should improve upon that offensive number and perhaps win a couple more games. He might even flip on clips of old Chargers-Broncos matchups - not to study in depth, but to skim through as an appetizer. But there always seems to be difficulty when going up against this team, especially with Phillip Rivers under center. Being around some offensive coaches and being involved in the kicking game, I learned so much more about the game. That's why the Broncos will pay Williams $30,000 a week on the practice squad - a total that, if he stayed there all 17 weeks of the regular season, would be more than the rookie minimum on the roster.

Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley made sure to mention it to his players during their meetings Friday.
