There’s something very special about playing the Chargers. It’s the two games a year that you get the luxury of watching a quarterback who sports a Lloyd Christmas hair cut and throws tantrums like a child in their terrible twos. This usually results in some very animated and classic moments that I’ll forever cherish.

This week Philip Rivers is celebrating his 34th birthday (happy birthday Mr. Christmas) and I don’t think any present would feel better than getting a win in Arrowhead.  I have full confidence that the Chargers are going to give Kansas City their best shot on Sunday. The Chiefs were the culprit in ending San Diego’s playoff hopes last year after beating them on the last week of the season. So there’s not a doubt in my mind that Mr. Christmas will be aiming to play spoiler and rain on the Chiefs parade.

In all seriousness, Rivers is a strong competitor and very dangerous. It’ll be key that the Chiefs get a good pass rush going to prevent him from getting in rhythm. Rivers will have Malcom Floyd this time along with Antonio Gates which will be a better challenge then their previous matchup. Kansas City can get this win against what’s been a disappointing Chargers team, but it is still a divisional game.

What makes me a little sad is that this may well be the last time we host the Chargers in a divisional game at Arrowhead with the rumors of the team possibly heading to Los Angeles. If that’s the case, we’ll never forget you Rivers. Thanks for the memories.

That’s what’s on my mind, Addicts, what’s on yours?
