Greg Olsen could be heavily involved vs. Jets
Chargers keep Demaryius Thomas in check
Thomas was targeted just five times in the game, matching his lowest total of the season. He did haul in four of those five passes for 45 yards, his second-worst total of the season.
Thomas has 78 receptions for 1,194 yards and 11 touchdowns on the season, heading into Week 16 against the Texans.
Eric Decker brings in just two receptions
Coming off his best two-game stretch of the season,
Decker, who had combined for five touchdowns on 16 catches and 291 yards in the previous two games, was emphatically held out of the end zone Thursday. He brought in just two receptions on five targets, for 42 yards, his second-lowest total of the season.
Decker is still putting a huge season together, as he enters Week 16 against the Texans with 73 receptions for a career-high 1,130 yards and eight touchdowns.
Andre Caldwell comes on strong while filling in
With Wes Welker sidelined by a concussion,
Caldwell led the team in every receiving category Thursday, as he hauled in six of the 10 passes thrown his way. He racked up 59 yards and scored twice in the game. He opened the game with a 15-yard score on the first drive, and added a 5-yarder in the fourth quarter as the Broncos desperately tried to come back in a 27-20 loss.
Caldwell entered the game with just five receptions for 87 yards and one touchdown on the season, so he almost literally came out of nowhere to play such a large role. Whether Caldwell can continue his success in Week 16 against the Texans will likely depend on Welker's availability yet again.

Ball entered the game with just 12 receptions for 74 yards, so this was his most impactful game in that facet. He now has 106 carries for 455 yards on the ground, heading into Week 16 against the Texans.
