San Diego Chargers Defense Fails Team in Loss to Chiefs

By Ernie Padaon

The San Diego Chargers defense could not make tackles and could not get off of the field and were the biggest reason the team lost.

Kansas City Chiefs 23 – San Diego Chargers 20Philip Rivers and the offense did get many opportunities to get on the field. He was often seen on the sideline waiting to get on the field and when he was on the field, he didn’t really have the best rhythm. He was able to move the ball down the field on a few plays, but it wasn’t enough at the end of the day.

The Kansas City Chiefs gave it to the Chargers defense and took control of the time of possession. That is usually the way that we want to play football. They did it on us. The Chargers couldn’t stop the Chiefs run game and they couldn’t make the necessary stops on 3rd down. Even when it seemed like they made the stops, a penalty or a missed tackle kept them on the field longer.

The defense had an AWFUL game. There will be a lot of things that they will need to fix going into the Thursday Night game against the Denver Broncos.

The Chiefs don’t have the best offense. The defense just couldn’t get off of the field. The defense just couldn’t tackle. The DEFENSE FAILED!!!!!!!

On offense, Branden Oliver could have gotten more touches in the game and the final chance in the red zone needed to be a touchdown. Settling for a field goal in that situation left the game to the defense again. The defense was already beaten up from staying on the field for most of the game.
