Los Angeles ChargersvsKansas City Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs led through most of the contest and finished with a 30-13 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs sweep the season series with the Chargers and lead the AFC West at 8-6. Running back Kareem Hunt racked up 206 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns. Wideout Tyreek Hill added a long 64-yard reception for a score. Defensively, the Chiefs forced four turnovers, which frustrated quarterback Philip Rivers who didn't see the field through the same lens as his receivers. Miscommunications in the passing attack and a porous interior defensive line cost the Chargers this contest. Kansas City controls its pathway to a third consecutive division title.
