The Sun Sets on the Broncos

    Newer Older

    The Sun sets in the orange sky just before kickoff at Qualcomm Stadium on Sunday, December 28, 2008 - the last game of the regular season between the Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers.

    The Chargers won their third straight division title by finishing 8-8, becoming the first team to go from 4-8 to the playoffs by routing the Denver Broncos 52-21.

    Denver (8-8) completed a monumental collapse, becoming the first team since division play began in 1967 to miss the playoffs after having a three-game lead with three weeks to go.

    When we bought the tickets to this game in August, we thought that this game would have no consequence since it was the last game of the season. Wow, we were wrong! This turned out to be a "Playoff" game.
