Division rivals Chargers take on the Broncos Monday night

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Two desperate teams featuring the two most-prolific passers in the NFL this season hook up tonight in Southern California.

After a bye week, Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers enter their home game against Denver with a 4-5 record and hunting a third-straight W.

The Kyle Orton-led Broncos check in at 3-6 following last week's 49-29 victory over Kansas City. Both are chasing the 6-4 Chiefs in the AFC West race. Second-place Oakland is 5-5.

The four-time defending champion Chargers are 0-2 in division play, having lost to both the Chiefs and Raiders.

Rivers is on pace to break Dan Marino's single-season record of 5,084 yards passing. He leads the NFL with 2,944 yards. Orton is next on the list with 2,806.

Catch the game Monday night on CBS 8 starting at 5:30pm.
