Week 14 vs. Los Angeles Chargers (SNF)

After having four primetime outings in the first nine weeks, the Chiefs won't see another nighttime game until they face the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 14. The Chargers will have played 12 games under new head coach Jim Harbaugh at that point, leaving time to tell if they're ready to finally pose a challenge to Kansas City.

Much like the rest of the AFC West, the Chiefs have absolutely dominated the Chargers over the last 10 years. Since the beginning of the 2014 campaign, they boast a 17-3 record against their divisional rival. In fact, Kansas City is currently on a five-game winning streak against Los Angeles, which includes outscoring the latter 44-29 on aggregate in back-to-back wins last season.

I'll admit that the Chargers' defense looks solid on paper, but the offense leaves much to desire. They lost, arguably their top three playmakers this offseason — Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, and Austin Ekeler — and are relying on an extremely young wideout room, Gus Edwards, and J.K. Dobbins (who's coming off an Achilles tear) — to fill the void.

With the playoffs right around the corner, Harbaugh will likely have the Chargers playing harder than ever to secure a postseason berth. Unfortunately for them, it won't be good enough. The Chiefs have the beat on both sides of the ball and will use the Arrowhead environment to further give them an edge.

The Chargers do own a plus-1.5 average scoring margin on their last four trips to Kansas City, though, meaning this game might end up being closer than the Chiefs anticipate.

Score Prediction: Chiefs 26, Chargers 24
