The start of Monday Night Game is promising for guests at the SoFi Arena. Wilson, who signed from the Seattle Seahawks pre-season and has performed below expectations so far, has found nine different recipients with his first nine passes. The quarterback shines with some deep shots and Denver goes into the first quarter with a 10-0 lead thanks to a McManus field goal (51 yards) and a touchdown from rookie Greg Dulcich.
The second half is difficult
After that, however, the thread breaks. Chargers responded at 6 yards by Austin Eckler and a field goal by Dustin Hopkins (37 yards). Since Justin Herbert (37/57, 238 yards, 1 interception, 66.3 rating) didn’t have his best day either, a somewhat challenging game developed as a result.
The Broncos led by two more goals, but Los Angeles saved each time, leaving extra time to decide. In overtime, the first two movers earn no points. When Denver was about to get the ball for the third time, returning Montrell Washington threw a soft kick, sending the Chargers’ attack back into the ball deep into the opponent’s half. Don’t miss this opportunity. Kicker Dustin Hopkins explained it all – despite a thigh injury – with his fourth field goal from 37 yards and the 19:16 win for the host.
Chargers celebrate their third win in a row
For the Chargers, after defeating the Texans and Browns, this was their third straight win, catching up with the Kansas City Chiefs of West Asia (both 4-2). Divisional contender Denver, on the other hand, is suffering from its third straight loss and already has their backs to the wall with a 2-4 score. To make matters worse, coach Nathaniel Hackett, who has received much criticism for his conservative call, also announced after the match that Russell Wilson had injured his thigh. It remains unclear if the midfielder will be out or for how long.
