After overwhelming another overmatched division rival, Peyton Manning and the streaking Denver Broncos can turn their attention to much more meaningful opponents.
In the early game, the Broncos face a Cincinnati squad that has fallen on hard times as of late, having dropped three straight.
While Oakland leads the all-time series 57-45-2, the Chargers ran off quite a streak against their arch-rival in the previous decade, going 14-6 against the Silver and Black. Oakland, meantime, has won three of the last four encounters. The landscape of the AFC West may come into focus as early as Monday Night.
