Spencer Ware has breakout game

November 22, 2015: Chiefs 33, Chargers 3: This was one of the most embarrassing performances the Chargers have had in recent memory. A 30-point home drubbing to the Chiefs.

Go and check Spencer Ware’s stats prior to this game. The Kansas City running back had 34 yards rushing and one touchdown.. for his entire career. In this game, he ran for 96 yards and two scores. Alex Smith was efficient as well, completing 20-of-25 passes for 253 yards.

The Chargers were dominated in pretty much every facet of the game in this one and it’s a forgettable day in Chargers’ history.

A late goal-line stand

December 13, 2015: Chiefs 10, Chargers 3: This one was tough to swallow as the Chargers stuck with the Chiefs in this game in Arrowhead and had a chance to tie the game or potentially win in at the end.

The Chiefs had more total yards in this game but the Chargers came up with five sacks and forced two turnovers on the defensive side of the ball to keep things close.

In the fourth quarter, Rivers got the ball on his own 11-yard line with five minutes to play. He took his team on a 17-play, 78-yard drive that resulted in no points.

The Chargers were able to get all the way down to the 1-yard line with just seconds left in the game. The Chargers then took a terrible delay of game penalty before Chris Hairston was flagged for a false start. Suddenly the Chargers were at the Chiefs’ 11-yard line with just two seconds to play and Rivers’ next pass to Danny Woodhead fell incomplete as the Chiefs walked away with the victory.
