Week 8: at Denver Broncos

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. This is a crucial AFC West showdown between two of the hottest offenses in the NFL - it should be an exciting, fast-paced game under the Thursday Night lights in Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium tomorrow. Ryan Mathews isn't expected back for a couple more weeks, so for now the Branden Oliver show will continue in this phase of the game (Donald Brown is still dealing with concussion after-effects and was inactive last week, by the way). Oliver has posted 15/67/0 rushing with 2/11/0 receiving vs. Kansas City and 26/101/1 rushing with 4/23/0 receiving at Oakland over the past two games. He is a competent NFL running back despite his youth and inexperience. The Broncos' rush D is ranked third in the NFL averaging 74.3 yards allowed per game, with five rushing scores handed out to date. Teams tend to get behind Denver so soon in games that they tend to abandon the running game - look at last week's blowout of San Francisco, when the 49ers attempted 46 passes vs. 18 rushes for 62 yards and zero rushing scores. It is an example of what often happens when teams play Denver. Advantage, Broncos.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs OAK (2 / 2 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 24 / 0 rec)

Recently signed due to multiple injury issues in the San Diego backfield, Brown got very limited work in relief of starter Branden Oliver. Brown handled a third down and 1 carry in the first half, which he barely converted for a first down. And he had a big catch down the sideline for 24 yards after slipping out of the backfield, which converted a third down and 9 in the second half.

2014 Week 7 vs KC (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Brown played on most third down situations in the game, only coming out late in the game when the Chargers wanted to make sure Branden Oliver was on the field. But Brown had just two offensive touches, both for minimal gains.
