Los Angeles Chargers

The Los Angeles Chargers hope that they can show up and be more consistent against the Kansas City Chiefs. They are coming off back-to-back losses despite tons of talent available. The Chargers are playing good offensively, averaging 277.9 yards per game. QB Philip Rivers will be tasked to lead the charge anew together with Melvin Gordon. The defense has been a bright spot for Los Angeles although they will have their hands full against the Chiefs. They are allowing 311.5 total yards per game and their passing defense is ranked 4th in the league (202 yards per game).

Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs are likely to extend their streak to six games against the Chargers this Sunday. More importantly, a win would keep their slim hopes of a number two seed in the AFC alive. They are doing well on both ends of the field. The Kansas City offense average 382.1 yards per game, the fourth-best in the NFL. They average 28 points per game, meaning Los Angeles needs to find a way to stop the Chiefs onslaught. However, the Chiefs are struggling defensively. Kansas City is allowing opponents 129.5 yards per game, something the Chargers may want to look into.
