During his own stint as Bills offensive coordinator last season, Lynn opted to call games from above.
The Chargers were toast. One Keenan Allen touchdown later and things were a little spicy.
Butler is friends with receiver Demaryius Thomas and has attended several Broncos games in the past. The Chargers' coverage teams, despite some issues late in camp, look improved as the team hopes to rebound after another rough year on special teams. "It would just be two coaches going at it, and may the best team win".
Monday was the first of test for these new-look Broncos, but it was only one of many. While the Broncos were one of only three teams to hold Bosa without a sack, he was very disruptive against them. On Sunday, the Raiders - who won 12 games a year ago - looked sharp with a road win in Tennessee. This year we've enlisted the help of Fernando Ramirez for a kind of back-and-forth analysis with Derek Togerson. Denver finished third in the AFC West last season, as their 9-7 record also had them on the outside of the playoffs. But the reality of that Denver Broncos defense is that capable is about all you need.
Denver took a 24-7 lead into the fourth quarter in this opener and the Broncos were feeling pretty good. Bolles earned rave reviews during the preseason, but he will have to prove he can stay composed and avoid penalties under the bright lights of Monday night. Siemian passed for 219 yards with two touchdowns, an interception and a rushing touchdown for Denver.
Siemian, a former seventh-round pick out of Northwestern, studied under Peyton Manning for a year before taking over as the starter in 2016.
But he stepped it up another notch on Tuesday as he took the biggest steps forward in his National Football League career.
He chose to juke Joey Bosa out of his trousers just for fun on his first ever rushing touchdown.
Mike Murray: "For me this all hinges on the play of the Chargers offensive line". Who would have thought Bennie Fowler would emerge as a serious threat?
It was capped when Siemian first drew the Chargers offside, then with a free play rolled right and threw a flawless pass to Bennie Fowler III in the back of the end zone.
Two of the teams that suffered many ups and downs last season, will find themselves in Week 1 to seek to start with the right foot. But the Chargers, man, were just woeful on offense for a lot of this game.
As loaded as the Broncos were on defense, they've added solid depth at linebacker and in the defensive backfield in the draft.
Todd Davis turned him away.
BEEFY BRONCOS: The Broncos beefed up their depleted defensive line before kickoff by promoting rookie nose tackle Tyrique "Pot Roast Jr". But the real threat is going to be Hunter Henry.
There's too much talent at the skill positions here for Los Angeles not to be more explosive.
Rivers led the Chargers back on their next possession.
Each being experts on opposite sides of the ball it'll certainly be a game of chess on the field.
