Heartbreak in overtime
September 11, 2016: Chiefs 33, Chargers 27, OT: Just two years ago, the Chargers and Chiefs opened the season against each other. This game was in Arrowhead, and at halftime, the home crowd could do nothing but boo as the Chargers were dominant in taking a 21-3 lead into the locker room.
The second half provided a totally different story.
The Chargers were outscored 24-6 in the second half and with just over one minute to play, Ware scored on a 5-yard touchdown run to send the game into overtime.
The Chargers got the ball first in the extra frame, but could do nothing with it. The defense seemed like it was on roller skates, going backwards, when the Chiefs got the ball.
Smith, who finished with 363 yards passing in the game, led his team on a 10-play, 70-yard drive which was capped off by his own 2-yard touchdown run to seal the great come-from-behind win.
Chargers lose in a shootout
January 1, 2017: Chiefs 37, Chargers 27: This game saw a ton of scoring as both teams approached 400 yards of total offense in the game. The difference ended up being that Rivers threw one more interception than Smith.
Of course, this game was significant for another reason as it was, at least for now, the last NFL game played in San Diego.
