The Broncos won the coin toss and deferred their choice to the second half, so they will start the game on defense.
Representing the team at midfield were the captains: quarterback Peyton Manning, defensive end Elvis Dumervil, cornerback Champ Bailey, linebacker Wesley Woodyard, and today’s game captain, cornerback Chris Harris.
Kicker Matt Prater put the Chargers at their own 20-yard line after sending the opening kick through the end zone for a touchback.
On defense, the Broncos come out with four down linemen – defensive end Elvis Dumervil, tackles Kevin Vickerson and Justin Bannan, and defensive end Derek Wolfe.
Von Miller, Wesley Woodyard and Keith Brooking start as the linebackers.
Champ Bailey and Harris start at the corners with Rahim Moore and Mike Adams at the safety positions.
Following a Chargers punt, the Broncos offense comes out on the field.
The starters on the offensive line, from left to right, are tackle Ryan Clady, guard Zane Beadles, center Dan Koppen, guard Manny Ramirez and tackle Orlando Franklin.
Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker start at each wide receiver position with Joel Dreessen at tight end and Brandon Stokley in the slot.
Manning is under center with Willis McGahee in the backfield.
