Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Diego Chargers: Post-Game Recap and Analysis

Brett GeringCorrespondent INovember 1, 2012

Final: Chargers 31, Chiefs 13

Philip Rivers (18-20, 220 YDS, 2 TD, INT) orchestrated an aerial masterpiece throughout Thursday night.

Time and again, No. 17 carved up Kansas City's vulnerable secondary. His tailback, Ryan Mathews, partially relieved the mountain of pressure sitting atop Rivers' shoulders, sprinting his way for 67 yards on 13 carries.

Kansas City relinquished any hope of winning by committing four turnovers. Matt Cassel (19-29, 181 YDS, INT) dinked and dunked his way to a decent performance, but the much-maligned quarterback only averaged 6.2 yards per completion. 

Jamaal Charles was harassed by San Diego's front seven, rushing for a measly total of 39 yards on 13 carries. 

The Kansas City Chiefs (1-7) will fly to Pittsburgh for a Monday night matchup with the Steelers (4-3). Next Sunday, the San Diego Chargers (4-4) will travel to the opposite coast and clash with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-4).
