Thursday NFL game preview/predictions: Broncos at Chargers

Tonight: Broncos at Chargers, 8:25, Ch. 10, NFL Network

Line/OU: Broncos by 3; 451/2

The Broncos will be down a coach — special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis will fill in while Gary Kubiak recovers from a migraine — but up a QB as Trevor Siemian, 4-0 as a starter, returns from a shoulder injury. They'll be trying to rebound from a loss to the Falcons against a Chargers team that keeps finding new and creative ways to lose.

    Is it possible for the Buccaneers and Bills to be any farther off the NFL's radar? You get the feeling schedule-makers didn't think twice about putting this one down for 1 p.m. Sunday — the let's-hope-no-one-notices time slot.
