Week 6 of the NFL season is upon us, and we kick things off with Thursday Night Football! The San Diego Chargers host the Denver Broncos in an AFC West rivalry matchup to get the week started. to kick off Week 4. CBS gets tonight’s game, with Jim Nantz and Phil Simms calling it.
The Chargers are currently sitting at 1-4, and they have lost some heart-breakers among those four. They seem on the verge of getting something going, but they remain in the AFC West cellar. They have been losing pass catchers left and right, but they got Antonio Gates back last week, and their depth is improving. They face a Broncos team that suffered their first loss, a home one to the surging Atlanta Falcons. Trevor Siemian missed last week’s game, but is back in action for Week 6.
I’m going with the Chargers to cover the field goal spread. I think they are going to get things straightened out this week. The Broncos are 4-1 and playing solid enough football. But I think a divisional road game on a short week is going to be a tough one for them.
Twitter has the rights to the live stream for this game, but in a cool bit of news, SB Nation worked out a partnership with Twitter and the NFL which allows us to host the live stream. You can watch it over at Twitter, or head here. Pretty cool stuff!
