Ryan Mathews will ge the ball a lot again. He needs to get the ball and the team needs to churn out some first downs and some touchdowns. Ryan Mathews will be needed big time in the red zone. We need him to run the rock hard as he has been and we also need him to hang on to the football. He will be a player that the team needs to play well.
Chiefs Player to Watch: Jamaal Charles
Jamaal Charles is the Chiefs offense. The Chargers will have to put as many players in the box as they can in order to put their focus in on stopping Charles. If Charles has a great game, then the Chargers will likely get beat. Charles will be the key for the defense.

I have not picked against the Chargers all season. The homet in me wants to pick the Chargers on more time. We have the ability to get the win, but that doesn’t mean that we will pull the win off. I will go with the logical selection here and say the Chiefs pull this game off at home.
Chiefs 19, Chargers 16
