The Kansas City Chiefs began their run through the AFC West a week ago by hosting the Denver Broncos in primetime on Thursday Night Football, a game that ended up with a 19-8 victory for the home team. This week, they remain at home in Arrowhead Stadium with the L.A. Chargers coming to town.

The Chiefs are hoping to land a couple of early victories in their run through their division rivals, since such early success would pretty much guarantee an eighth consecutive division title.

If that sounds a bit crazy, it is. It's most definitely early. But the Chiefs are sitting at 5-1 in a division in which the Broncos are already four games behind at 1-5 and the Chargers are 2-3. A victory over the Bolts on Sunday afternoon would give K.C. an incredible lead with only the Raiders to worry about—and even their victories have only come against the NFL's dregs.

That means this Sunday is pivotal for the Chargers. Their backs are against the wall and they could use a season-defining win, something on which they can hang their hats and begin to believe in something better. As for the Chiefs, they just wanna keep marching.

The Chargers and Chiefs are set to kick off at 3:25 p.m. C.T. on Sunday, October 22. For the Chargers, they're playing on a somewhat shorter week having played on Monday Night Football against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6. The Chiefs have the opposite "problem" coming off of the mini-bye provided by playing on Thursday Night Football against Denver.

Chargers vs Chiefs odds

The Chiefs opened as 5.5-point favorites which feels a bit low considering they're also the home team with a nice history of wins in their run of dominance over the AFC West. That said, the Chargers have been media darlings every year due to the abundance of top-tier talent on paper and this suggests that reputation remains despite their record.
