Broncos to Host Chargers Sunday

Posted Jan 5, 2014

The Broncos' Divisional Round opponent is set. Denver and San Diego will square off for the third time this season on Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Denver finally knows its opponent for the Divisional Round of the playoffs. And it's a familiar one.

Next Sunday at 2:40 p.m. MST, the Broncos will face the AFC West-rival San Diego Chargers at Sports Authority Field at Mile High for a chance to play in the AFC Championship Game.

It will be the third time the two teams have squared off this season. They split the regular-season series.

The Broncos are the No. 1 seed in the AFC, so they face the lowest remaining seed in the Divisional Round. When the No. 6 seed Chargers upset the No. 3 seed Cincinnati Bengals Sunday afternoon, it locked in San Diego as Denver's opponent.

The other AFC game next weekend comes in New England -- the No. 2 seed Patriots will take on the No. 4 seed Indianapolis Colts.

San Diego provided one of Denver's three regular-season losses in 2013, a 27-20 defeat in Week 15 that players predicted would be a "wake-up call" for the team. Denver closed the regular season with two wins by a combined margin of 71-27.

Next Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High will mark the two AFC West rivals' first-ever matchup in the postseason.
