    DENVER 48 SAN DIEGO 28

    Denver, CO - When Denver's front office spent a top five pick on pass rusher Von Miller in the 2011 NFL Draft, they knew they'd be getting a good player. They didn't know they'd be getting the face of their franchise.

    In Week 11, Miller recorded 4 sacks and also made multiple plays in coverage (a new part of his game that he's been working extremely hard to improve). The pressure that he and Elvis Dumervil generate off the edge have a huge impact on Denver's league leading turnover differential.​
    Fans in Denver were up in arms when their new front office and coaching staff decided to part ways with future Hall of Fame QB Peyton Manning. Not so much anymore. Rookie QB Brock Osweiler is 3-0 as a starter and he's been incredibly efficient in Denver's run-heavy, conservative offense. Through his first three games, Osweiler has completed 65% of his passes with 5 TDs and only 2 INTs.​
    The young gun had a breakout performance against divisional opponent San Diego. Osweiler threw 3 TDs and didn't turn the ball over against the aggressive Chargers. His top three receivers each caught a pass for a score - displaying all kinds of accuracy, Osweiler hit Eric Decker on a deep fade, Jerricho Cotchery on a skinny post, and Thomas on a quick slant for TDs.​
    It was more of the same for the two headed monster at running back. Willis McGahee and Jonathan Dwyer split carries and pounded the Chargers into submission. Whether it's a short-yardage situation or 1st and 10, these guys are looking to punish defenders when they get the rock. The coaching staff hopes to cut McGahee's workload down as the season progresses, as rookie RB Ronnie Hillman seems ready to contribute after spending most of the 2012 on the bench.​
    Heavy-hitter Tommy Zbikowski showed the world that he still has some of those moves in the open field that he used to display at Notre Dame. Zibby caught two of five Philip Rivers' interceptions and he took them both to the house for scores. Champ Bailey also had two interceptions and Tracy Porter had one.​
    San Diego seems to have found an heir apparent at tight end. Ladarius Green showed deceptive deep speed, getting behind Denver's secondary a couple times for some big plays.​

    I thought Denver was a Coors type of place. Tap the rockies.
