Brandon McManus was 0-for-1 on field goals but converted five extra point attempts during the Broncos' 35-21 win over the Chargers on Thursday night.

McManus has been dealing with a groin injury and was listed as "Questionable" for Thursday night's game. He only had one field goal attempt Thursday night, and it was of the 50+ yard variety. He hooked it wide left, however. He plays for football's best offense and needs to be started every week.

Von Miller had two tackles and a sack during the Broncos' 35-21 win over the Chargers on Thursday night.

Miller was one of the main culprits of Phillip Rivers's uneasiness in the pocket on Thursday night. The Broncos' front seven stuffed the run and applied constant pressure. This is a damn good defense.

Brandon Marshall led the Broncos with 10 tackles -- including two for a loss -- during their 35-21 win over the Chargers on Thursday night

Marshall leads the Denver defense in tackles by a mile, although he only has one sack. He's become a strong IDP play thanks to his absurd amount of tackles.

Chris Harris had four tackles and an interception during the Broncos' 35-21 win over the Chargers on Thursday night.

Harris caught Rivers' first interception and Rahim Moore caught the second. The secondary looked strong Thursday night, as the Chargers were mostly limited to short yardage passes and were punished when they went for the deep ball.

Wes Welker caught two passes on two targets for five yards during the Broncos' 35-21 win over the Chargers on Sunday.

Welker was MIA for most of the night. In fact, Welker's best play was recovering a fumble that trickled out of the hands of fellow receiver Emmanuel Sanders. The Broncos play New England next week, and Peyton Manning hinted that Welker could be a big part of the game plan for that particular matchup. It sounds like more smoke than fire, but he could be worth a play as a bye-week WR3 fill-in.

Julius Thomas caught two passes for 23 yards during the Broncos' 35-21 win over the Chargers on Thursday night.

The window to sell high on Julius Thomas is all but closed. He was on an historic pace a few weeks ago, having scored nine touchdowns in his first five games. The pace was unsustainable and he's now caught just six pass for 50 yards over his last two contests. The Denver offense has an entire family of mouths to feed in its receiving corps, so the variance in touchdowns week-to-week are due to be uncertain. If Gronk has another big game this weekend, he could challenge Thomas as the 2014 king of the tight-end position.

Demaryius Thomas caught eight passes on 12 targets for 105 yards and no touchdowns during the Broncos' 35-21 win over the Chargers on Thursday night.

The D-Train keeps on rolling. He's now got 767 yards receiving and six touchdowns through seven games. He's also averaging more than nine targets per game, making him an absolute monster in PPR formats. He's in the tippy-top tier of wide receiver with Jordy Nelson and Antonio Brown until AJ Green and Megatron can show they're healthy.

Emmanuel Sanders caught nine passes on nine targets for 120 yards and three touchdowns during the Broncos' 35-21 win over the Chargers on Thursday night. He also rushed once for six yards.

Holy Sanders! Emmanuel was Peyton Manning's target of choice Thursday night, catching all three of the Broncos' passing touchdowns. Before the game, Sanders had reeled in just one TD and it came last weekend against the Jets. He now has four TD's and 634 yards on the season. He's a legit WR2 with upside on a week-to-week basis.

Juwan Thompson had seven carries for 24 yards and two touchdowns during the Broncos' 35-21 win over the Chargers on Thursday night.

Starting running back Ronnie Hillman almost had a massive game, but it was Thompson who the Broncos trusted around the goal line. He runs with plenty of power, and it's tough to imagine Montee Ball getting his job back to any degree with the success the mile high ponies are having on the ground right now.

Ronnie Hillman carried the ball 20 times for 109 yards and caught three passes for 29 yards during the Broncos' 35-21 win over the Chargers on Thursday night.

Hillman has now reeled off three great starts in a row. Unfortunately for those of you who took Montee Ball in the first or second round and didn't handcuff him to Hillman, the job looks to be firmly in his grips. Juwan Thompson is the third-down and change-of-pace, power runner, but it appears it's going to be the Ronnie Hillman show from here on out. He'll be on the RB1 radar against the Patriots next week.
