AFC Notes: Broncos, Chargers, Chiefs, Raiders


  • Broncos HC Vic Fangio said everyone was disappointed by the offense’s performance vs. Las Vegas: “You get 158 yards of offense and eight first downs, it’s hard to say anything good about our offense.” (Pro Football Talk)
  • Fangio didn’t have an update on QB Teddy Bridgewater, who is still in concussion protocol: “We will do the best thing for him moving forward.” (Troy Renck)
  • Fangio added he’s not thinking about his job security: “For a lot of reasons, I do not worry about it. Do I acknowledge that it’s out there and could happen, absolutely.” (Renck)
  • Fangio mentioned, despite the offense’s slow few weeks, there have still been positives: “These last games have been tight, tough losses, they’ve been low scoring affairs, but I do think it indicates the fight and competitiveness in this team. … But we have total faith in our players that we will get this turned offensively in these next two weeks.” (Ryan O’Halloran)

  • Chargers HC Brandon Staley told the media he will take the blame for the loss against Texans: “I just didn’t coach well enough today. I didn’t coach well enough. I didn’t put our guys in good enough positions to be consistent in the game and that’s why we lost.” (Gilbert Manzano)



Raiders QB Derek Carr said the team is doing whatever it takes to get a victory.

“We’re just finding ways to win,” Carr said, via Vincent Bonsignore. “At the end of the day, I’ve been praying for moments like this. We find ways to win at the end of the year so we can just get in the tournament. That’s all we’re trying to do.”

  • Carr admitted following the team’s game against the Broncos that he was a little banged-up: “My body? I never lie to you so I’ll tell you I just don’t feel good.” (Paul Gutierrez)
