What to Know

The Kansas City Chiefs are 7-1 against the Los Angeles Chargers since September of 2016, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Sunday. Kansas City and Los Angeles will face off in an AFC West battle at 4:25 p.m. ET at SoFi Stadium. The Chiefs won both of their matches against the Chargers last season (24-17 and 31-21) and are aiming for the same result this time around.

Kansas City gave their fans exactly what they wanted out of a home opener last Thursday. They took their matchup against the Houston Texans 34-20. Among those leading the charge for Kansas City was RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who rushed for one TD and 138 yards on 25 carries.

Los Angeles had to travel to play their first game of the season, and the final result was worth the trip. They skirted past the Cincinnati Bengals 16-13. Having forecasted a close victory for the Chargers, the oddsmakers were right on the money. Their only touchdown came from RB Joshua Kelley.

Most of the squad’s points came courtesy of special teams, which contributed ten. Kicker K Mike Badgley delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.

Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 1-0. We’ll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when the Chiefs and the Chargers clash.
