If before the 2013 season you would tell Bolt fans that Cal rookie Keenan Allen would become the “go-to” guy for much of last season, many may have scratched their head a time or two. When all was said and done last season, Allen emerged not only as the Chargers’ top threat, but one of the top wide receiver stories around the NFL.
The 2013 New England Patriots overachieved this season, but they couldn’t overcome a powerful Denver Broncos squad in the AFC Championship Game.
While their record may not show it, the San Diego Chargers turned in a rather solid season when you take a look back at the 2013-14 campaign.
Both Patriots Nation and Broncos Country are looking forward to Brady/Manning XV. The rest of the planet will probably enjoy the game, too.
Being the sixth and final seed in the NFL playoffs usually means you’re a sizable underdog. When it comes to the San Diego Chargers, that holds true a second weekend straight.
The Denver Broncos are arguably the best team in the NFL, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to win this week. In fact, many stats show Peyton Manning and his Broncos are more likely to lose than win, as the No. 1 seed against the No. 6 seeded San Diego Chargers.
Whenever a regular season NFL game receives as much hype as Sunday night’s Broncos/Patriots game did, it often seems as if the actual game is anti-climatic. This one, however, may have exceeded the hype.
The New England Patriots are in a good position to earn the #2 seed in the AFC playoffs, and the return of several injured players will definitely improve their chances.
