We review the Chiefs victory over the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday Night Football.

The Kansas City Chiefs took a strangle hold on the division with a sweep of the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday night. The Chiefs win 30-13 was a great showing by both the offense and the defense for one of the few times in the past two months. Kansas City now has a one and a half game lead on both the Oakland Raiders and the Chargers.

Kareem Hunt had another fantastic game as the Chiefs offensive line was able to simplify their blocking scheme. Hunt had close to 100 yards after contact against a beat up Chargers team. Alex Smith had a deep throw to Tyreek Hill that looked like he may have overthrew. Hill ended up being 10 yards past the deepest Charger and then had a great NASCAR celebration to end it. Travis Kelce showed up early in the game and then the Chiefs went away from him as Hunt got going later.

The Kansas City defense showed up early in the game and really made Philip Rivers pay for his mistakes late in the game. Kansas City held Keenan Allen to only five catches on 54 yards after he had torn the league apart over the past month. K.C. struggled to contain Melvin Gordon most of the night but he wasn’t able to do enough to keep the Chargers offense sustained. Phillip Rivers ended up throwing three picks, two to Marcus Peters who also helped create a fumble. Rivers has been fantastic throughout the middle of the season. His kryptonite has been the Chiefs as he has six of his ten interceptions against the Kansas City defense this season.
