But it was a different story after yesterday's 27-19 Denver win — a revenge game made all the sweeter by the amount of time Chargers crybaby QB Philip Rivers spent either face down in the turf or upright and complaining to referees about the terrible things that were being done to him.
Granted, the path to a Broncos victory wasn't a smooth one. The sideline collision that sent Denver defensive coach Wade Philips to the hospital sent a collective shock through the Mile High masses (subsequent reports have suggested that he'll be just fine), and Siemian's red-zone woes continued by way of two drives that petered out into field goals rather than resulting in touchdowns.
But the final results ultimately obliterated the negatives in much the same way that Denver pass rushers punished Rivers, the man Broncos boosters love to hate more than just about any other player in the league. Tom Brady is his only real competition.
