Two offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Broncos are stumbling into the game with the third fewest overall offensive touchdowns in the NFL, having accrued only 25 on the season. The Chargers have experienced some struggles of their own as they are third worst in the league in rushing yards per game, with only 91.6 on average.
