The San Diego Chargers and the Denver Broncos are about to start the fourth quarter with the home team up on the visiting squad by 17 points.

Not much going on during this game, which has been a field position battle. There have been a couple missed field goals and a Peyton Manning interception. One thing that stands out is the amount of penalties that have been called on the San Diego Chargers defense.

Just today alone, the Chargers have been flagged five times for neutral zone infractions. According to ESPN NFL on Twitter, that happens to be the most by any team this season.

Giving a team extra yardage is something you have to avoid when you’re in the post-season. Especially when you’re playing Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. The coaches need to get into the ears of these defenders. This cannot happen.
