The Chargers had a chance to prove their doubters wrong against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3, a real opportunity to make everyone believe they've matured beyond their inconsistent ways of the past.
Unfortunately, they were destroyed 27-3 at home, and now we're left to wonder what Chargers team will emerge in Week 4 on the road in Kansas City.
The Chiefs rumbled for nearly 275 yards rushing against the Saints en route to a stunning victory in New Orleans. Actually, after watching the Saints through three weeks, was it really that stunning?
Running back Peyton Hillis was spotted in a walking boot at Wednesday's practice, but the Chiefs are relatively healthy. Following an abysmal six-carry, three-yard performance against Buffalo, Jamaal Charles exploded for 233 yards in New Orleans.
Ryan Mathews is fully recovered for the Chargers, but he carried the ball only 10 times for 44 yards against Atlanta in Week 3.
More touches this week?
Not if his fumbling ways continue.
Neither team is stellar, and both certainly have their weak spots, but the Chargers' defensive front seven should be able to bottle up Charles on their way to a big road win.
