Everything can all change starting Monday night, when the Chargers entertain the Denver Broncos. Yep, the 5-0 Broncos, who are leaving their AFC West brethren—including the Chargers—in the dust.

It was a painful bye week for the Chargers, as fact and fiction were in a constant battle after they were demolished by the Steelers leading into the off week.

Yes, the Chargers are a good team—but when will they start playing like one?

Yes, the Chargers have won three straight AFC West titles—but when will they start acting like a champion?

Yes, the Chargers’ window of opportunity with this group of core players could be ending after this season—but when will the team start playing with a sense of urgency?

Monday night would be a good start after licking their wounds for a week.

“We had a chance to regroup a little bit, reevaluate what’s going on and now we’ll try and get on a roll in these division games,” tight end Antonio Gates said.

The table is set for just that. The Chargers haven’t dipped into the AFC West division since beating the Raiders in the season opener. Now come the Broncos, a trip to Kansas City and the visiting Raiders over the next three games.

It’s easy to go the doom-and-gloom route with the Chargers despite their 2-2 record. In addition to the Broncos’ threat to run away with the division, the Chargers have been decimated by injuries, can’t run the ball, stop the run or put pressure on quarterbacks.

That’s why some are saying this possible Super Bowl year could quickly turn into one where the team is fighting to stay above .500—which was right where it ended last season at 8-8.

General manager A.J. Smith was leery of Josh McDaniels taking the Broncos’ coaching job as quickly as it happened. With the Patriots having the Chargers’ number in the playoffs, Smith was well aware of McDaniels’ credentials of being the Pats’ offensive coordinator.

“I’m very concerned,” Smith said, on how fast the Broncos got up to speed. “I saw the changes going on and I saw it as a direct threat to the San Diego Chargers.

“I hoped that it would slow down and take a few years to get their program going, but I knew they would be going. I’m not surprised. There’s a new beginning in Denver, and they’ve come out on fire.”

Which means now is the time for the Chargers to find their spark. To rediscover the confidence and swagger they broke camp with, something which has seldom been seen in the season’s first month.

“I want the players to be consistent,” said Smith, adding he has no issues with coach Norv Turner and his staff. “Don’t play hard for a quarter and then drift a little bit. That’s what I want and I think that’s what they’d like to see … if we continue to stay focused and believe in one another and we play four quarters of hard, consistent football, things will improve.”

But time is running out. And that makes Monday night the best time to start proving to the doubters that the Chargers are more than a .500 squad.

Series History: 99th regular-season meeting. Broncos lead series 53-44-1, but the Chargers are looking for their fourth straight win over Denver at home. The last time they played in San Diego the stakes were high as the winner advanced to the playoffs as AFC West champions. The Chargers completed their amazing comeback—and the Broncos continued their historic free-fall – with a 52-21 San Diego win. The Chargers are also 2-0 against the Broncos on Monday Night Football. Neither of these teams has swept the season series since the Broncos did it in 1991. Monday night will be one of the NFL’s legacy games, which pays tribute to the original members of the AFL; both teams will be wearing uniforms from the inaugural season of 1960—back when the Chargers called Los Angeles home.
