Chargers lose it late
October 19, 2014- Chiefs 23, Chargers 20: The Chargers played the Chiefs tight in this game, even if they couldn’t get them off the field.
The Chiefs had possession of the ball for a staggering 39 minutes in this game and outgained the Chargers by 114 total yards. They also ran 70 plays to the Chargers 49. Still, they needed a field goal in the late stages of the fourth quarter to get the win.
With the game tied at 20 with just 21 seconds to play, Cairo Santos came out and drilled a 48-yard field goal to give the Chiefs the lead. In desperation mode, Philip Rivers threw an interception just two plays later, the game’s only turnover.
Chargers lose to Chase Daniel
December 28, 2014- Chiefs 19, Chargers 7: Both of these teams were looking for a win to stay in the playoff hunt, and the Chiefs were going with Chase Daniel at quarterback.
Rivers threw for nearly 300 yards in the game and the Chargers had 110 yards more total offense than the Chiefs, but they still managed just sevem points. Three turnovers did the Chargers in as they kissed their playoff hopes goodbye in late December.
It marked the first time that the Chiefs had swept the season series against the Chargers since 2003 and started a trend which the Bolts haven’t been able to reverse since.
