Kansas City Chiefs vs Los Angeles Chargers 11/18/2019
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs used to be a force to be reckoned with. They had a good win-loss record before the middle of the season and were predicted to be one of the top-tier teams. However, they got a string of loses after that, with the latest loss dealt by the Tennessee Titans. It was a heartbreaking game that saw the Chiefs succumb to a 35-32 scoreboard.
QB Patrick Mahomes was in prime playing form. He pumped in 36/50 plus an amazing 446 passing yards. His three thrown TDs were the lifeblood of his team. Damien Williams carried the ball 19 times, helping the team gain 77 yards. Tyreek Hill took care of the receptions by catching a whopping 11 receptions for a total of 157 yards.
The Kansas City Chiefs failed to solidify their defense against a shifting opponent. They gave up 371 yards as compared to their own 530 yards. The discrepancy is glaring, and it’s amazing the opponent was still able to carve out a win despite their inferior field presence.

Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers are also licking their wounds. They came from a close-call game at a 26-24 scoreboard. It was a heartbreaker because everything seemed to be going well for the team. QB Philip Rivers was at 17/31 mode and connected 207 passing yards. He even chucked in 2 thrown TDs and 2 interceptions. Melvin Gordon helped his team commit to a rushing TD. His 22 ball carries resulted in a total yardage gain of 108 yards.
The Chargers’ lack of scoring capability became apparent in their previous matchup. Coupled with the below-average defense, it was a sure recipe for disaster. The Chargers allowed a 68% completion rate on enemy throws. They also were not able to stop 21 rush carries.
Even though the Chargers scored greater yardage gain at 315 yards versus the opponents’ 278 yards, their scoring conversion was not as effective. The Chargers have to look into developing a game plan that involves a balanced offense and defense. It’s their only hope in order to stop the slide of their win-loss scorecard.
