    Chargers QB Drew Brees, a Pro Bowler last year, passed for only 175 yards against the Broncos. Remarkably, LaDainian Tomlinson (left), a 100-catch back two years ago, hasn't caught a pass in either of the first two games.

    San Diego doesn't win in Denver, so a loss to the Broncos -- even these Broncos, who did a heck of a lot to lose it themselves (including nullifying a punt return for a touchdown by coming onto the field to celebrate during the return) -- is somewhat excusable, considering the history of this series.

    What this does is make Week 1's home loss to Dallas that much more painful for the Chargers. You remember, don't you: The Chargers couldn't score in the red zone late, mainly because they didn't have tight end Antonio Gates, who was serving a team-imposed one game suspension? Four of San Diego's next seven are on the road, including at New England, at Philly, and at the Jets. The Chargers? Unless they make an immediate U-turn, they're on their way to an extended vacation.
