Five Reasons The Chiefs Will Win In San Diego

6 of 6

5.) This is a different Chiefs offense than San Diego has ever seen

When the Chiefs were forced into that sudden shootout with the Chargers last November, they had never won a game that way under Reid. QB Alex Smith had only once thrown for more than 2 TD’s in a game up to that point in 2013, and the team had relied heavily on special teams and defensive scoring to roll over opponents. What that game showed was that Smith could win that games when called upon, and the Chiefs went on to average 43 points per game in their next three matches.

That outburst of offense was stunning at the time, but we’ve become oddly accustomed to it now as Smith and the rest of the team’s skill players settle into Reid’s offense. The Chiefs are averaging 27.25 points over the last four games, by the way.

The Chargers never played the Chiefs starters again in 2013 so San Diego has only seen one half of a totally unleashed Reid-in-Red offense.
