A look at one key for each AFC West team in their final preseason games Thursday, a game usually designed for backups to shine:
Kansas City at Green Bay, 7 p.m. ET:
I’d like to see Ricky Stanzi get some good experience. Stanzi won’t see much more playing time in the near future, so he must take advantage of this chance.
Oakland at Seattle, 10 p.m. ET:
Terrelle Pryor should get a lot of playing time. He was sharp last Saturday, but he is a work in progress. He needs to use this game to work on his pocket passing.
San Diego at San Francisco, 10 p.m. ET:
It’s been a brutal summer for the Chargers health-wise. They need to come out of this final game without any more injuries, especially since some key starters are going to play some.
Denver at Arizona, 11 p. m. ET
Second-round pick Brock Osweiler could end up the backup this season, so quality work in this game will be beneficial.
