Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.

Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full thing here.

Remember when something was wrong with Leonard Fournette? The formerly maligned back entered Mile High last week with a below-average 4.16 yards per carry. Twenty-nine carries and 225 yards (7.76 YPC) later, the Broncos run defense was searching for answers.

LA is hoping for similar success on Sunday. Austin Ekeler’s gaudy fantasy numbers aside, the Chargers’ run game has been solid if unspectacular this season, with their backs averaging a combined 4.45 yards per carry (14th) and their offensive line ranking 13th in Football Outsiders’ adjusted line yards.
