Trevor Siemian, Broncos' defense do just enough to get opening win

Chargers begin LA era against Broncos

While Ryan was correct in recalling that Gotsis had picked up a knee injury in college, he may want to have another look at the 2016 draft, where Gotsis was picked up by the Broncos.in the second round. There was nothing in front of him except green grass. It was a national TV game at Mile High.

But this time, Hayward couldn't hang on. Bosa fell, Siemian scored, and headlines sprung up talking about how a quarterback not known for his rushing ability had just embarrassed one of the Chargers' best defensive stars.

Rivers threw touchdown passes to Keenan Allen and Travis Benjamin following the takeaways to make it 24-21. Siemian was not thrilled he had to win his job again, even if he never conceded frustration publicly. Before a raucous home crowd of 74,892, they won 24-21 - downing a talented but inconsistent visiting team that could never quite close the gap. Monday could not be fairly called a must-win, but it felt like a game the Broncos could not lose after last week's victories by the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders.

Los Angeles Chargers kicker Younghoe Koo (9) leaves the field after his field goal attempt was tipped and fell short of the goal post during the second half of an NFL football game against the Denver Broncos, Monday, Sept. 11, 2017, in Denver.

Matthew Stafford was in imperious form with four touchdown passes for 292 yards to guide the Detroit Lions to a 35-23 win over the Arizona Cardinals, while the Oakland Raiders overcame Tennessee Titans 26-16 and the Buffalo Bills were 21-12 winners over the New York Jets.

Denver took a 24-7 lead into the fourth quarter in this opener and the Broncos were feeling pretty good. And losing the games means losing all of the rituals that went with them.

Siemian showed some athleticism on Denver's second touchdown of the night.

Jets vs. Bills: Preview, score prediction for Week 1
I thought I would be writing about how Ronald Darby would be making interceptions against our opponents in the regular season. That leaves Josh McCown at quarterback and a cast of inexperienced and uninspiring wide receivers for him to worth with.

No arguments from Anthony Lynn, who also was making his head coaching debut for the Chargers. Offensively, Rivers got everyone involved, hitting multiple receivers numerous times while the run game was effective when it needed be.

"It was wonderful. It felt great to go out there and get two touchdowns".

There were signs of life, of course.

The ending left the Chargers with a loss in their first game since moving in the offseason to Los Angeles from their longtime home in San Diego. With Rivers guiding the offense, there's always a chance.

On the next possession, Broncos running back Jamaal Charles fumbled as he tried to power to a first down. Fowler was pulled down as Chargers safety Adrian Phillips intercepted the pass. Rivers went to work. Fifteen yards were enforced on the ensuing kickoff. We have to find those guys and dial up plays for them. Todd Davis smashed into Melvin Gordon on fourth down with the night's biggest not produced by the Rockies' Nolan Arenado. The Broncos limited him to two catches for 17 yards and held him out of the end zone.

A pass interference penalty on cornerback Bradley Roby - his second of the game - moved the Chargers to Denver's 34-yard line.
