San Diego Chargers Philip Rivers

The Denver Broncos officially clinched a playoff berth in the wake of Week 16’s 20-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, but before they can advance to the postseason they’ll face off against the lowly San Diego Chargers at home - a game that will mercifully end the Chargers’ season.

  • The UNDER is 4-0 in the Chargers' last four games.
  • The Broncos are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in January.
