AA lounge: Chiefs vs. Chargers

KANSAS CITY, MO - JANUARY 3: Spencer Ware /

The Kansas City Chiefs are about to get their season underway on CBS against the San Diego Chargers.

The time has come. Kansas City is hoping to get its season off on the right foot with a home date against an AFC West rival in the Chargers. The main talking points leading into the game were Spencer Ware having to gain some yards on the ground, and the defense needing to shut down Philip Rivers.

If you root for the Chiefs, you think both of these things could and should happen. Rivers will be going against a very talented secondary with the quartet of Marcus Peters, Eric Berry, Phillip Gaines and Ron Parker. If Kansas City can get a pass rush, things should be alright.

On the other side, Ware should have plenty of room to run against one of the worst run defenses in 2015. The Chargers did a nice job to add Brandon Mebane along the defensive front, but he shouldn’t be enough to turn that group into a solid unit.

Alright, enough about what we think is going to happen and what might happen. It’s time to find out, for better or worse, what is going to happen.
