The Chiefs defense is showing up even in a meaningless game.

The Los Angeles Chargers looked like they were putting together an impressive drive to open the game, but someone forgot to tell the Kansas City Chiefs defense that their Week 18 matchup against the Bolts was a meaningless affair in the standings.

Despite putting together an 18-play drive in the first quarter against the Chiefs to start the game, the Chargers ended up coughing up the ball when facing a third-and-goal situation when the Chiefs defense came together for an impressive play that resulted in a 97-yard touchdown for safety Mike Edwards.

On the play, Chargers quarterback Easton Stick found himself sacked by Chiefs defensive lineman Charles Omenihu for a three-yard loss and the ball was knocked loose in the process. The ball bounced off the turf and into the hands of Edwards who was right in stride, and he ended up taking it to the house 97 yards in the other direction.

Check out the full play below:

Seeing Omenihu come up big just one play after Felix Anudike-Uzomah also notched a sack against Stick means it's nice to see the Chiefs defense putting up big plays even with many starters sitting on the bench as the team rests key players before the postseason.
