Chargers and Chiefs Meet on Asinine NFL Saturday Matchup

Kansas City Chiefs

Chargers and Chiefs Battling for AFC West Crown

The Los Angeles Chargers and the Kansas City Chiefs meet at Arrowhead Stadium in a Saturday Night NFL matchup. Kick-off is set for 8:30 pm EST. NFL Network will have the coverage everywhere except the teams local markets.

The NFL is already screwing up it’s product with Thursday Night Football and for years have played on Saturdays after college is finished. This is asinine. These NFL players kill themselves on the field and playing on short rest is making injuries more common. NFL is for Sunday and Monday Night.

Oddsmakers opened the Chiefs as -1-point favorites versus the Chargers, while the game’s total opened at 46. The Chargers are now listed as 1-point favorites. The total is up to 47.

Chiefs Look to Find Early Season Mojo

Kansas City won its last outing, a 26-15 result against the Oakland Raiders on December 10. The Chiefs covered in that game as a -4.5-point favorite, while the 41 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

The club started 5-0 before their 2-6 stretch. That stretch has left them in a dog fight for the AFC West.

Kansas City showed signs of life last week with their victory over the Oakland Raiders.

The Chiefs will likely be without starting center Mitch Morse. He appears likely to miss his second straight game.  Morse re-aggravated a sprained left foot that kept him out of five games earlier this season.

Chargers are Flying High Coming Into Chiefs Game

In their last action, Los Angeles was a 30-13 winner at home against the Washington Redskins. They covered the -6.5-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (43) was profitable news for UNDER bettors.

The Chargers now sit on a four-game winning streak. The have been blowing out their opponents 131-53 in that stretch. Philip Rivers has three-straight 300-yard passing games. Los Angeles piled up 174 yards rushing last week against the Washington Redskins.

The Chargers started 0-4 and are 7-2 since and their offense is cranking out high numbers.

Chargers starting left tackle Russell Okung (knee) and starting defensive tackle Corey Liuget (toe) were limited participants in practice Tuesday and Wednesday. They are likely to play Saturday.
