Bolts From The Blue
Mile High Report
Facing a must-win game against the Los Angeles Chargers, the Denver Broncos put forth arguably their best performance of the season in a 28-13 victory that should have never been that close.

Instead, Broncos Country will have to “settle” for a 15-point victory.
