MNF Broncos Lard 11-22-10

Good Morning, Broncos fans! The Broncos are in San Diego to face the Smurfs tonight, although as expected they will be without Andre' Goodman; Robert Ayers, Eddie Royal and Darcel McBath are listed as questionable. For San Diego, S Steve Gregory, RB Ryan Mathews and WR Legedu Naanee are listed as doubtful, while TE Antonio Gates, TE Kris Wilson and DE Travis Johnson are all questionable. Finally, LB Brandon Siler, K Nate Kaeding and WR Malcom Floyd are all probable for tonight. The Chefs got back on track yesterday with a convincing win over Arizona, while Jokeland got whipped in Pittsburgh. A win tonight for Denver would move them into a tie with San Diego and keep them within 2 games of the first-place Chefs.
