Here are five keys to the game heading into tonight’s match between the San Diego Chargers and the Denver Broncos:
“We’ve got to score touchdowns. To me, if you maintain possession of the ball, you’ve got to still end it with points and preferably touchdowns against this team.”
“We have to score touchdowns. We got into (the red zone) against them, but we had to kick field goals those first couple times. We’ve done a better job (in the red zone) since then, so that will be important).”
"I tell the guys all the time communication is the key to our success. It's about getting lined up and getting 11 players on the same page. We have to be able to handle the no-huddle situations and not give them opportunities to where we don't get the call. The more we keep working it, the better the communication has been at times over the last few weeks. You still have to deal with those mental errors during plays and you have to overcome them.”
“Anytime you go on the road, it's us against the world. That's the approach we are going to take as the visitors going in to any home team. They have their fans behind them. It's going to be loud, we know all that. We practice out here with the noise and all that stuff so it's awful loud here too. You are on the road and we have to make sure we do all the little things right on the road against a good football team.”
"Number one, it starts with your quarterback. I think Philip (Rivers) has had an outstanding year. When you have a player like Philip, it always gives you an opportunity. There are no guarantees in this business. Everyone has won a lot of games no one thought they were going to win or you lose games no one thought you were going to lose. When you have a quarterback like Philip Rivers, he always gives you an opportunity. The leadership of this football team and the way they have responded to certain situations and the way we played yesterday, that's the way we should all be able to play, but that is over with. The Giants game is over with. You have to do it another week. I think the players have done an outstanding job of buying in to what we are doing, week in and week out. We have to play better more consistently for four quarters. Especially against a team like Denver, you have to play for four quarters. That's what good teams do to beat them.” Read
