DENVER - Peyton Manning laughed when his receivers played hot potato with his record-setting memento last weekend. He wont be nearly as jolly Thursday night if the San Diego Chargers play keep-away from the Denver Broncos high-powered offence as they did last year. The Broncos were held under 65 snaps just twice last season — both times by San Diego. The Chargers controlled the clock for more than 38 minutes in both games, including a 27-20 stunner at Denver on a Thursday night in December. That was Mannings only divisional loss since heading West in 2012 and the Broncos only loss at home. Last year they caught us sleeping, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said. This year, we know they can come in and beat us. So, were preparing well, were preparing hard and I think well be a lot better. The Broncos (5-1) have beefed up their defence and that should make it harder for the Chargers (5-2) to keep Manning & Co. on the sideline again. It was tough last year, insisted Chargers coach Mike McCoy, who was Mannings co-ordinator in 2012 and saw firsthand how the five-time MVP maximizes his chances. Manning earned his 27th career AFC Offensive Player of the Week award for his four-TD masterpiece against San Francisco in which he supplanted Brett Favre as the NFLs career touchdowns leader. Manning is on pace for 51 TDs and 4,928 yards — just under his record-setting 2013 season in which he threw for 55 TDs and 5,477 yards. Where hes better is in passer rating (118.2 to 115.1) and touchdown proficiency (8.7 per cent of his throws to 8.3 per cent). I think Peyton is being Peyton, one of the greats of all time, McCoy said. Im happy to see him break the record ... but its not a shocker at all the way hes playing. Nor is it surprising that Philip Rivers is doing so well once again. After reviving his career under McCoy in 2013 and halting a three-year playoff drought, Rivers 113.0 passer rating trails only Manning in the AFC. And his 17-3 TD-to-interception ratio is similar to Mannings 19-3. Other things to watch for in Denvers second prime-time game in four nights: CORNERBACKS CORNUCOPIA: San Diegos secondary is banged up with cornerbacks Jason Verrett (shoulder, questionable) and Brandon Flowers (concussion, out) ailing. So Shareece Wright and Richard Marshall could make their third straight start together in Denver. Some of the players that are starting this week started last year and they were able to beat us still, Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas said. So, our main thing is trying to go out and do something better than what we did last year. TERRIFIC TIGHT ENDS: This game features the top tight ends in the NFL: Julius Thomas, who has nine TD catches, and Antonio Gates, who has seven. We see it all the time here against Julius, so we know what a special player at that position can be and they certainly have one, Denver defensive co-ordinator Jack Del Rio said. I think when our guys went out and got Juice I think they were hoping that he could become something like Gates someday. Antonio has done it for quite a while and we understand the concerns, the issues, the matchup problems they present. OLD FRIENDS: Dwight Freeney didnt get to face Manning, his old Indianapolis teammate, last year because a thigh injury sidelined him after a month in San Diego. Mannings not exactly eager to face the outside linebacker until the postgame hugs and handshakes this time: Our offensive line knows weve got a challenge against their front, especially the guys having to block Dwight, Manning said. WELL-RESTED: Rivers figures neither team has an advantage because they just played on Sunday night and weve got to travel, so it evens out. The Broncos, though, were able to rest most of their starters in their blowout of the 49ers on Sunday night. The Broncos were gassed in last years Thursday night loss to San Diego as they were coming off a come-from-behind win over Tennessee in which Manning played 95 snaps. He took just 51 snaps Sunday night and joined several other starters on the sideline in the fourth quarter. RIVERS IN THE ROCKIES: Manning is 20-3 at home since joining the Broncos, but Rivers is no slouch in Denver, where hes 6-3. And hed be 7-2 if not for Ed Hochulis blown call on a last-minute Denver fumble in 2008. Its a great place to play, Rivers said. I love playing there. Drew Bledsoe Patriots Jersey . “Im not sure well get Melky Cabrera at all,” said Gibbons. The 29-year-old left fielder struggled all season with knee and hamstring problems. Cabrera was first on the disabled list from June 27-July 20 with tendinitis in his left knee. Tom Brady Jersey . -- Kansas City Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer will be out three to six weeks with a stress fracture of the third finger of his right hand. http://www.shoptheofficialpatriots.com/ ... -Jersey/.J. -- Kevin Gilbride retired Thursday as offensive co-ordinator for the New York Giants. Andre Tippett Womens Jersey . It was a day that saw England slump off a World Cup field once again battered and bruised. This time there was no red card to wonder about, no goalkeeping error or individual mistake. They were thoroughly beaten by something they have nothing of – genuine world class ability. Andre Tippett Patriots Jersey . -- Orleans Darkwa ran in from 1 yard with 1:45 left, and the Miami Dolphins rallied from two scores down in the final minutes to beat the Dallas Cowboys 25-20 on Saturday night.PHILADELPHIA - Toronto FC loaded up on defenders and added talent in goal while springing a few surprises on a busy day at the MLS SuperDraft on Thursday.GM Tim Bezbatchenko and head coach Greg Vanney had plenty of options with the sixth, ninth and 11th overall picks, as well as two selections in the second round.They spent the sixth pick on Syracuses Alex Bono, the first goalie taken, before plucking French centre back Clement Simonin (North Carolina State) out of their hat. Toronto took Syracuse defender Skylar Thomas, a native of Pickering, Ont., with the 11th pick.Toronto selected South Florida centre back/fullback Wesley Charpie and Cal State Northridge midfielder/forward Edwin Rivas in the second round. Bono and Thomas anchored a stingy Orangemen defence that finished third in the NCAA last season with a goals-against average of 0.55. Syracuse registered 12 shutouts en route to 16-4-1 record.The six-foot-three Syracuse goalie, a finalist for the Missouri Athletic Clubs Hermann Trophy as NCAA mens player of the year, is currently in camp with the U.S. senior team.We thought he was the best and most well-rounded goalkeeper in the draft, said Vanney.An underclassman, the 20-year-old Bono is a Generation Adidas player, meaning his contract will not count against Torontos salary cap.Toronto has a more than capable starter in Joe Bendik. But club officials thought more competition was needed in goal. Backup Chris Konopka has played two league games in five seasons split among four teams. At 20, Quillan Roberts is seen as a future talent.Toronto will look to give its young goalies playing time in its new USL Pro team while keeping them ready in case Bendik needs a break.With only captain Steven Caldwell and sophomore Nick Hagglund as true centre backs on its roster, Toronto needs help at the heart of its defence.The six-foot-one, 179-pound Simonin caught most by surprise, with Conor Donovan the North Carolina State defender expected to go first.The 23-year-old French player transferred to NC State from Lander University for his final two seasons. But his senior year was cut sort by hernia surgery after just three games.So nobody saw him over the course of his seenior year, said Vanney.ddddddddddddToronto had seen him and rated him highly, enough to make him the second defender taken in the draft with Seattle, which had Simonin play on its under-23 team, angling to get him.Toronto considered trading down but thought they might lose him,Hes a left-footed left centre-back who is outstanding on the ball. Hes a fabulous soccer player, he makes very good decisions and reads the game very well. Hes a very well-rounded centre-back.Vanney liked what he saw of the six-foot-four, 205-pound Thomas at Syracuse and two combines, praising him for his athleticism, maturity and leadership.Growing up, Thomas supported Toronto FC and is no stranger to seeing games at BMO Field.For those wondering, the 21-year-old Thomas says everyone in his family has a name starting with S.They wanted to name me Tyler and Kyle and the same time so they named me Skylar, he explained.The 22-year-old Charpie, a six-foot-one 173-pounder who had five goals and 21 assists in 81 games for the South Florida Bulls, is seen as an athletic, young option to cover for Mark Bloom at right back.Like Simonin, Toronto rated Rivas highly and thought the 23-year-old would not be known to many playing at Cal State Northridge, although scouts were drawn to the school to see forward Sagi Lev-Avi who was taken two spots above Rivas by Columbus.And like Thomas, the five-foot-11, 170-pound Rivas impressed at a workout in Nevada ahead of the MLS Combine in Florida.Hes a left-footed forward/winger who can either beat you with power and pace down the line or he can come inside and get to goal, Vanney said. He provides us some more ideas, options on the flanks.Rivas, who had 17 goals and 10 assists in 78 games for the Matadors, can play on both sides and up front although Toronto envisions him playing on the wing.With the signing of Michigan State midfielder Jay Chapman as a homegrown player, Toronto saw it as a good day.We are ecstatic about the young depth that we have on our team and we know theyre all hungry to compete for minutes on this roster, Vanney said.The third and fourth rounds of the MLS draft go Jan. 20 by telephone.___Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter ' ' '
