And the lead is cut to one…

As much as it pained me to root for Pittsburgh, I am ecstatic with the outcome.  Denver’s lead has been reduced to one game and shades of last season are looming on the horizon.  Next week is critical, however.  Denver travels to Washington to play the Clinton Portis-less 2-6 Redskins (and you know he would LOVE to play against his old team!)  I hope Jim Zorn watched the game and collaborated with his coaching staff to develop a good game plan.  On the flip side, the Chargers host the dangerous Eagles.  But the game is in San Diego and Philip Rivers is phenonemal at home (22-5.)  As long as the defense can stop the run (and Shawne Merriman can keep the multi-sack game streak going), the Chargers have a great chance of winning…

On a side note, it was nice to see Chris Chambers have a great day in his new home in Kansas City.  With he and Dwayne Bowe, I’m sure Matt Cassel is happier.
