Sunday NFL Playoffs Picks & Analysis: The Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers meet for the third time this season with a trip to the AFC championship on the line.

Both teams come into this matchup very familiar with each other, with the two teams splitting the season series. Denver won at San Diego back in week 10, 28-20. San Diego returned the favor in week 15, winning in Denver 27-20. In both of these games, San Diego dominated time of possession. In the first game, San Diego held the ball for 38:03. In the second game, they had the ball for 38:49. Do you see a pattern here? San Diego’s head coach is Mike McCoy, who was Peyton’s offensive coordinator in Denver. If there is anyone that knows Manning’s strengths and weaknesses, it’s McCoy. Last Sunday, the Chargers came in to Cincinnati a 7 point underdog. All the pressure was on Cincinnati, and San Diego snuck into the playoffs. Some would say they didn’t even belong due to a missed call in their final regular season game against Kansas City. So San Diego was pretty much playing on a free roll. You could see throughout the game that San Diego was loose, they had been playing in must win situations for the last quarter of the season. Now they play Denver once again, and now all of the pressure is on Peyton Manning and the Broncos. In his career, Manning has had 8 early first game playoff exits. If my memory serves me correct, the Broncos were installed as a 9 point favorite against Baltimore, we all know what the result was of that game. We’ve all seen the numbers that Manning has put up this season, yet usually when teams set scoring records during the season they fail in the playoffs. It’s become all too familiar in the NFL. In 2007, Tom Brady and the Patriots set scoring records, yet lost in the Super Bowl. The Broncos have put up a ton points this season, yet their defense has holes. If the Chargers can control the clock and keep Peyton on the sideline, they are very capable of winning this game. They’ve done it twice this season, winning the time of possession 2 to 1.

I’m taking the points here, as I think the coaching staff has their players believing. I’m sure Denver is aware that they will be in for a dogfight, and all of the pressure is on them. Denver has all the scoring records, and has had the better regular season. However we all know in the NFL, it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. The Chargers have caught lightning in a bottle (no pun intended), and I think they’re the Broncos kryptonite. On paper the Broncos would seem like the better team, but come Sunday on the field, it will be San Diego.
