All I can think about is when the K.C. Chiefs are going to play on Sunday.
If you’re like us, you’re ready to move on from the gut punch of a loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2 as a K.C. Chiefs fan. It’s been a tough week overall and a lot of doubt has been cast over the Chiefs performance in general, and there’s nothing more we’d like to see than for Andy Reid and company to take out their frustrations on a division rival. In this case, it would be the Los Angeles Chargers.
Right now, the Chargers sit with the same record as the Chiefs at 1-1. Both teams have to be shocked that they are looking up in the standings at the likes of the Las Vegas Raiders and Denver Broncos, but alas, that’s how upside-down the AFC West is so far this season. What that also means, however, is that the Chiefs have a very real possibility of sitting in last place in their own division—the one they’ve owned for years—after roughly 20 percent of the season has passed.
Now, we don’t actually think that will happen. The Chiefs are presently 6.5-point favorites per our friends at WynnBET and given the emotions of last week’s fourth-quarter loss, the Chiefs are likely going to come out fired up and ready to make a statement (as well as reverse their present momentum) against the Chargers.
How will these Chargers hold up? It’s hard to tell. They’re healthier than they have been in recent seasons with an offensive line that’s better than most iterations they’ve put out there. The Chargers also didn’t have Derwin James last year, and Justin Herbert was just learning the ropes as a rookie quarterback.
All of this means we’re in for another entertaining game to watch on Sunday. Here’s what you need to know:
Who: Los Angeles Chargers vs. Kansas City Chiefs
When: 12:00 p.m. C.T.
Where: Arrowhead Stadium
