On Sunday afternoon in Southern California the Denver Broncos were looking for their first win of the season under Vic Fangio. In the previous four weeks the Denver Broncos managed to tie an unflattering 20-year-old record, losing four straight games to start off their 2019-2020 season.

Their opponent, the L.A. Chargers who moved to L.A. last season in an attempt to capitalize on a much larger market were both frustrated over the results of the game and how Denver Bronco fans descended on Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson California in the masses.

Sunday’s game looked more like a home game for the Denver Broncos as a sea of orange and blue dominated the stands from endzone to endzone. This made Denver’s road game feel more like home but Denver fans made their presence known whenever the Chargers offense took to the field.

The Broncos came out swinging, scoring on their first drive and after stopping the Chargers on their first offensive possession they never let off the gas scoring 10 more on the Chargers before the half and holding L.A. to zero.

Much of Denver’s success came at the hands of Phillip Lindsay who ran for 114 yards on 15 attempts, and one touchdown, averaging 7.6 yards a carry. In lieu of Bradley Chubb’s departure due to injury, the Denver Broncos opted to start A.J. Johnson, an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee. The move proved to be one of Fangio’s best decisions in recent weeks.

Johnson seemed to be in on nearly every play, recording 6 tackles (3 assists, 9 combined), and an interception in the endzone at the end of the third quarter. Denver beat the L.A. Chargers 20-13 in a game that wasn’t nearly as close as the score suggests.

In other sports the Colorado Avalanche recorded their second win over the Minnesota Wild 4-2. The Avalanche are off to a great start and are primed for their Thursday night home game against the Boston Bruins at Pepsi Center. The Avalanche are expected to be one of the league’s premiere teams and are atop of the Central Division above the NHL Champions, the St. Louis Blues. Last season the Blues beat the Boston Bruins 4 games to 3 to win the Stanley Cup.

The Denver Nuggets kick-off preseason this week with games in Portland to face the Trail Blazers and in L.A. to face the Clippers. The Nuggets will have one additional road game in preseason next week to face the Phoenix Suns on Monday October 14th before returning home to play the Trailblazers again.

The regular season begins in Portland on Wednesday, October 23. The Nuggets will be on the road for three of their five games in October and kick off the month of November on the road in Orlando to face the Magic.

Despite both the Nuggets and Avalanche seasons kicking off just weeks from one another, Altitude Sports is still looking for a carrier to televise their games. Dish Network, Direct TV and Comcast have all allowed their contracts with Altitude to lapse causing local fans to miss out on televised games. Altitude has recently started a petition called, “Don’t Block My Altitude,” in an effort to kick-start talks with the three networks.
