Los Angeles Chargers @ Kansas City Chiefs headlines National Football League on Saturday

He picked up three tackles and a sack as the Chiefs spent most of the game in a dime package with just two defensive linemen.

The beginning of the season must be included in any evaluation of teams, but it appears that it's not being considered here.

Kansas City started the year off at 5-0, before entering their current 2-6 slump. Though quarterback Alex Smith is having the best season of his career by far, a good rule of thumb would be to force the 12-year veteran struggles as the weather turns traditionally due to his limited arm strength.

The Chargers move into first place in the AFC West on Saturday night, as they are able to take care of the Chiefs on the road.

Who would have thought that six weeks ago this game would be for the lead in the AFC West?

The Chargers steamrolled the Washington Redskins 30-13 last week for their fourth straight win. Chiefs lead series, 59-54-1. That will be made even more hard for the Chiefs since Eric Berry is out. With the Broncos out of the race, it basically comes down to the Chargers and Chiefs over the next three games to decide it all.

The Kansas City Chiefs are giving their fans quite a gift this holiday season.

Don't be surprised if the AFC's current No.5 seed falls out of the playoff picture. They gave up 189 rushing yards to Kansas City - part of a six-game, season-opening stretch in which they surrendered 915 yards to opposing runners. WR/PR Tyreek Hill has three touchdowns (two receiving, one punt return) in his past three games against the Chargers.




Defensive stalwarts Derrick Johnson, Tamba Hali and Justin Houston are all cheaper to cut than keep in 2018, and with a new general manager, the team could opt to hit the reset button after the season with a new starting quarterback and younger team. "They're playing good football, high-level football on both sides".

After a victory vs. division rival Oakland Raiders, the Chiefs look revitalized.

If the Chiefs lose, a division title looks very unlikely with an easy Los Angeles schedule remaining. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Chiefs are 1-point home underdogs versus the Chargers, who opened as a 1-point dog.

You can get 10/11 on either a home or away win - it's that close.

For now, all that matters is Saturday.

Even though Chicago can only spoil Detroit's playoff hopes and possibly alter Minnesota's postseason positioning in two weeks, Fox expects the best from his players. This is not year two of a rebuild, this is not a year where eight wins gets a parade. It represents the most important game of a season that represents an entire group's legacy.

It's a good thing for the that Bill Parcells' famous line - "You are what your record says you are" - isn't exactly true.
