It’s a showdown between the 2 best AFC teams tonight on Thursday Night Football, as the San Diego Chargers take on the Denver Broncos to kick off week 8 in the NFL.
The game will be broadcast live from the Sports Authority Field at Mile High, in Denver, Colorado starting at 8:25 P.M. (EST) on both CBS and the NFL Network.
(Unlike in years past, this year the NFL Network will air 7 Thursday night games between September 11 and October 23).
Live streaming will be available from the NFL Network, DIRECTV NFL Sunday Ticket, Verizon and Manscave Football.
Streaming through the NFL Network is free, but can only be accessed through a participating cable provider and only through your home WI-FI Network: it can not be accessed when traveling.
The DIRECTV NFL Sunday Ticket requires a subscription, which starts at $199 and is available to all DIRECTV customers.
Those who do not have DIRECTV, but live in NY City, Philadelphia or San Francisco are eligible to purchase the service as well.
Verizon customers who have the Verizon Wireless More Everything Plan can also watch the game through live stream for free, as they dropped the $5 service fee for this season.
There is also HD streaming service available form Manscave Football, which can be used on any device anywhere you go. They have various packages, from $9.99 a month and up, offering access to all the games, replays, highlights and stats.
With San Diego at 5-2 and Denver at 5-1, this is going to be a close contest that will hinge on which quarterback performs better.
Denver QB Peyton Manning is the hottest QB on the planet right now after becoming the all-time leader for career touchdowns last week.
What’s even more amazing is that he has thrown multiple touchdowns in every game and has hardly any interceptions or incompletions.
Manning’s prowess, combined with an improved Denver defense means San Diego and QB Philip Rivers are going to have to step it up.
Rivers currently holds the 3rd best passer rating this season and has some great weapons in Eddie Royal and Antonio Gates, so they should be able to hang with the Broncos- but they won’y beat them.
Manning is just too much for them to overcome, it’s his year.
Broncos 31-Chargers 24.
