Chargers stun Chiefs with late touchdown, two-point conversion

Chargers-Chiefs Week 15 Injury Report

The Chiefs led virtually wire-to-wire, with MVP candidate Patrick Mahomes connecting on two touchdown passes in the first quarter to give Kansas City to a 14-0 lead. You can go back to past year, to 2017, when we lost to those guys twice - same things.

Turned out to be 109 days between practices and 29 missed games. Making it even more important is that the Chiefs and Chargers are first and second in the AFC in wins, respectively, which means the division victor could secure home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, while the other will have to play on the road in the first round.

"Hopefully we get to play them again", Rivers told NFL Network after the game, "but they're a heck of a team". Yet, they didn't feel the time was right to rush him onto the field. "Only thing that can stop us is us, and we beat ourselves".

The NFL Week 15 game is live on Sky Sports with coverage starting at 00:30 on Friday with the match scheduled to begin at 1.20am.

The Chiefs (11-3) could have clinched their third consecutive AFC West crown, something the club has never accomplished, along with a first-round playoff bye. He wound up finishing his college career at West Alabama, and went through counseling and other requirements that convinced the Chiefs to give him a chance.

Eric Berry made his long-awaited return to the field, Chris Jones piled up some more sacks to match an National Football League record, and the Kansas City Chiefs' maligned defense finally looked like a dominant force for a while.

The Kansas City defense has tallied 18 total sacks over their past six games under the lights, including five sacks of Los Angeles Rams passer Jared Goff in a thrilling 54-51 loss on Monday Night Football in Week 11.

"It is killing him not to be out there", Reid said, "but at the same time, you want to be smart with it". He didn't get to quarterback Philip Rivers, but he helped hurry a deep pass attempt to Tyrell Williams that was underthrown and resulted in a Steven Nelson interception. "He's a guy who can make all the throws", Chiefs cornerback Kendall Fuller said.

So, without further ado, who should fantasy footballers start and sit for Thursday night's game in Kansas City? Benjamin would provide a big body on the outside and some additional depth with Watkins likely to be out. I see both teams scoring early and often here. They also weren't happy with a time out the Chiefs took with eight seconds left. "So we have to find ways to get that done".
