Game notes

» The Denver Broncos own an all-time record of 69-53-1 against the Los Angeles Chargers, including 26-35 mark on the road

» With a victory Sunday, Denver would reach four road wins in a season for the first time since 2016

» Cornerback Pat Surtain II needs one interception to become just the fifth NFL rookie in the past decade with at least five picks in his first season

» With one interception, Surtain would also move into sole possession of fourth place in team history for picks by a Broncos rookie

» Safety Caden Sterns needs just one interception to become the second Broncos player (Surtain) with at least three picks in his rookie season since Steve Atwater (3) in 1989

» With 38 scrimmage yards, running back Javonte Williams will surpass Knowshon Moreno for the seventh-most by a Broncos rookie

» Williams also needs 173 yards rushing to become the seventh Broncos rookie — and first since Phillip Lindsay in 2018 — to eclipse the 1,000-yard rushing mark in his first season
