Chargers fans tackle mixed emotions during season opener

Chargers begin LA era against Broncos

Los Angeles made a late comeback attempt but Denver's defense stepped up again, blocking a field goal attempt that would have sent the game into overtime. Broncos head coach Vance Joseph iced the rookie kicker with a timeout, then enjoyed his first career National Football League coaching win as Shelby Harris blocked the second attempt.

"You had to watch the games, even when they were awful", Rachel Doyle said.

There will always be a place in the hearts of Chargers fans for quarterback Philip Rivers and tight end Antonio Gates.

Joseph kept his team focused by imploring them to remember it wasn't over. He led a 15-play scoring drive on the Broncos' second possession, finishing it with a 5-yard scoring pass to Bennie Fowler. We've been on both sides of those kind of games when teams start roaring back like that, it's like, "uh oh".

The Broncos led by 17 points with only 10:44 remaining in the fourth quarter. I can look at all the pluses and minuses and say, 'OK. The interception was caused by the Broncos' pass rush.

"He said a lot", said Millsap, who signed a three-year, $90 million contract shortly after that meeting.

Siemian's TD run was the first rushing score by a Broncos quarterback since Brock Osweiler had a 7-yard scoring run against the Pittsburgh Steelers on December 20, 2015. As he approached the goal line, the only person standing in his way was Chargers linebacker Joey Bosa.

Hurricane Katia stationary in the Gulf of Mexico, expected to strengthen
Yunes said Saturday that there were no other reports of major damage, though he said some rivers had risen to near flood stage. The hurricane quickly lost strength after hitting land and was downgraded to a tropical storm.

His second touch went for five yards, but things would mostly decline from there in the ground game.

It's good to get a little lucky sometimes.

Insert your own joke here or take the next five seconds to get the salt back out of your wound. He faced 11 run plays and made four stops, according to Pro Football Focus.

The miracle play saved the Broncos from an all-time collapse and allowed them to escape with a 24-21 win.

REPEAT PERFORMANCE: This game was reminiscent of last season's opener, when the Broncos beat Carolina as Graham Gano missed a 50-yard field goal with 4 seconds left. Siemian had a 82.1 quarterback rating, which was substantially better than Rivers' 60.8 quarterback rating. Obviously, the red zone we want to clean up and finishing the game, I think we can do a better job there. While the Broncos got off to a fast start against LA, the team narrowly won as the Chargers' rookie kicker had a game-tying field goal blocked. He had 20 yards rushing along with a rushing touchdown and was able to cash in on the the Chargers' interception.

The Broncos reconfigured their defensive line in the offseason to plug some of the holes like the one Gordon sprinted through early in Monday night's season opener. The Broncos can't, and won't, count on field goal kickers missing chip shots the rest of the season. They may be in Los Angeles now, but this is still the team that went 1-8 in one-score games last fall.

One quick step and Gordon, the third-year running back for the Los Angeles Chargers, was deep into the secondary for a 21-yard gain. He'll get the Cowboys in Week 2. Sep.
