DAN CAESAR'S THURSDAY NIGHT NFL CAPSULE
CHARGERS AT BRONCOS
When -- 8:25 p.m. EST. Line -- Broncos by 101/2
Synopsis -- Denver plays its regular-season home finale, and has been almost unstoppable there. The Broncos are 7-0 at home and have scored at least 35 points in all but one of those outings as QB Peyton Manning continues his record-shattering season of passing as the Broncos lead the league in that department as well as total offense and scoring. Meanwhile, San Diego has the league's 28th-ranked pass defense. On the other hand, the Chargers should be able to move through the air as QB Philip Rivers leads the league's No. 4 aerial attack and the Broncos are even worse at defending the pass than the Chargers -- they are No. 29, But look for Denver to close its home schedule in a big way.
PICK -- BRONCOS 43, CHARGERS 30
