Los Angeles @ Kansas City

Current Records: Los Angeles 5-10; Kansas City 11-4

What to Know

The Los Angeles Chargers have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. Los Angeles and the Kansas City Chiefs will face off in an AFC West battle at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium. Coming off of a loss in a game they were expected to win, the Chargers now face the more daunting task of proving themselves against unfavorable odds.

It looks like the Chargers must have gotten on Santa’s naughty list since the team didn’t end up with the win they were expected to receive last week. They came up short against the Oakland Raiders, falling 24-17. The Chargers’ only touchdowns (two) came from RB Melvin Gordon.

Meanwhile, Kansas City made easy work of the Chicago Bears last week and carried off a 26-3 victory. The squad ran away with 17 points in the first half and mostly just sat on those in the second to pick up the victory.

Kansas City’s victory lifted them to 11-4 while Los Angeles’ loss dropped them down to 5-10. One last thing to keep an eye on: 12 of the Chargers’ points in their last contest came from rushes on the left side of the field. That’s bad news for the Chiefs, who had a hard time containing the rush on the left side of the field against Chicago.
