Three Broncos players and three coaches took questions from reporters Thursday. They shared thoughts on the last time they played the Chargers, the pressures of the playoffs and other topics.
Running Back Knowshon Moreno was asked about the photo of his crying on the Sports Illustrated cover. He said, "I play with my emotions on my sleeve...and have fun doing it."
"If we don't go out there and play our game, we're going to go home again and we don't want that," said Wide Receiver Demaryius Thomas.
"They've done an excellent job throughout the year in third-down, getting to third and manageables, and obviously that's been very big for them," Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio said about the Chargers.
Linebacker Wesley Woodyard commented on the memory of the Broncos' last loss to the Chargers, "I think it was a wakeup call to the whole team: That we've got to go out there and continue to play hard, play fast and physical."
"Any time you can get up on a team that is a ball-control team, it puts a little more pressure on them to possibly do something they don't like to do," Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase said.
Coach John Fox on the sense of urgency: "You do this for a living and play against the best in the world every week. I would say it's a fair assessment that there's a pretty big sense of urgency every week."
