Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said that Allen fell down in practice on Thursday, but he's hopeful the Cal product will play. "He wants to play, but we've got to do what's best for Keenan," Lynn said.

NFL Insiders predict: Chargers to upset Broncos?

When these teams met in Week 1, Los Angeles fell just short of a comeback win. The Bolts are hosts this time around, and a two-game winning streak seems to have them back on track after an 0-4 start.

FPI's high-leverage game of Week 7: Broncos at Chargers

If the Chargers beat the Broncos, they would have a 17 percent chance to reach the postseason, which at least isn't nothing. Meanwhile, Denver's playoff hopes would take a serious hit with a loss.

Eric D. Williams ESPN Staff Writer 

A sign the Chargers' roster has improved, for a second straight week the Bolts lost a player on waivers. The New York Giants claimed LB Nigel Harris. The Chargers lost safety Dexter McCoil to the San Francisco 49ers last week.
