On Monday night, the San Diego Chargers needed to prove that they were going to be a team to beat not only in the AFC but in the NFL as well.
On their opening drive, it looked like they were going to do just that. After a completed pass to a wide open tight end Antonio Gates to get them inside the 10-yard line.
They would finish off the drive with a touchdown pass, again to Gates, to put them up seven early in the first quarter.
When the rain came, it washed out whatever offense, or defense, the Chargers had.
A long touchdown run by Chiefs' running back Jamaal Charles was the first score of the game for Kansas City. Their second score came as a result from a fumble by Chargers' running back Ryan Mathews. But, to add insult to injury, it was topped off by the Chargers' special teams breakdown that led to a punt return for a touchdown by Dexter McCluster.
In the end, San Diego would board their flight home after a disappointing 0-1 start to what was a promising 2010 season.
