The Broncos will travel to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers at SoFi Stadium on Sunday, Dec. 10, 2023 at 2:25 p.m. MT.
The Broncos return to AFC West play for their first game of the season against the Los Angeles Chargers. Denver will travel to Los Angeles with the opportunity to reclaim a winning record and gain ground in the AFC standings after a close loss to the Houston Texans in Week 13.
On defense, the Broncos have found their footing and held up against some of the league's best offenses. Denver hasn't allowed an opponent to score more than 22 points since Week 5 and ranks first in the NFL with 22 takeaways. The Broncos' pass rush is also coming off one of its best performances, recording five sacks and six tackles for a loss against Houston. Denver's offense will look to continue its momentum from its second-half performance against the Texans, which included a 45-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Russell Wilson to wide receiver Courtland Sutton and a 1-yard sneak by Wilson for his second rushing touchdown of the season. The Broncos will look to ignite their passing attack once again when they play the Chargers, who rank 31st in net passing yardage allowed. AFC Special Teams Player of the Month Wil Lutz has been one of the league's most reliable kickers and headlines a Broncos special-teams unit that ranks first in punt and kick return average.
For the Broncos, running back Samaje Perine (knee) did not participate in practice on Friday and is listed as questionable. Defensive end Zach Allen, outside linebacker Baron Browning, tight end Chris Manhertz, right tackle Mike McGlinchey, wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr., defensive tackle Mike Purcell, cornerback Pat Surtain II and safety Delarrin Turner-Yell were full participants for Friday's practice and were not given game statuses for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers.
Los Angeles ruled out guard/tackle Zach Bailey, defensive back Deane Leonard and wide receiver Joshua Palmer and listed linebacker Amen Ogbongbemiga and defensive lineman Otito Ogbonnia as questionable.
