Final Tally: Kansas City 6 – 2

More from Kansas City Chiefs

There shouldn’t be any doubt that the KC Chiefs are the better team here. They’ve owned the Chargers for three straight seasons in head-to-head matchups. The Chiefs haven’t lost to the Chargers since the 2013 season and this is a totally different team than what we were watching then.

Home field advantage appears to be a non issue when visiting L.A. Look for more red in the stands than any other color this Sunday, as it’s become pretty clear that Los Angeles isn’t into their professional football teams.

If the Chiefs defense can limit the amount of big plays from the Chargers receivers, this should be the seventh victory in a row for the Chiefs over their AFC West foes.

It’s much needed too, as the Broncos have the Bills this weekend and the Raiders have the Redskins. They both could easily win and the Chiefs can’t afford to fall behind in the divisional standings this early on.
