The Chargers are seeking their first three-game winning streak since the 2014 season when they won three games from Weeks 11 through 13. But that could be challenging with San Diego losing seven straight divisional road games. The Chargers defeated the Broncos in Week 6, snapping a 10-game divisional losing streak overall.

The Broncos are 14-1 when allowing 20 or fewer points over the last two seasons, including a perfect 5-0 this season. They haven't lost consecutive divisional games since 2010-11 but are just 1-4 against the number in their last five games versus AFC West opponents. They're also 2-8-1 against the spread in their last 11 games playing on a Sunday following a Monday night game.

OUR PREDICTION: The Chargers continue to be one of the most competitive teams on a weekly basis. Despite finding ways to lose games earlier in the season, they're 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 games overall and are a perfect 6-0 ATS in their last six divisional games. San Diego has already shown it can move the ball against this stout Denver defense and the Broncos are once again at a disadvantage playing the Chargers on a short week.
