Kareem Hunt has a big game
September 24, 2017-Chiefs 24, Chargers 10: During the Chargers’ miserable September last year, this was another game they were in late. Though Kareem Hunt ended up showing the entire league what he was capable of, the Chargers were one of the first teams to be on the wrong end of it.
Hunt rushed for 172 yards in this game, but it was his biggest run of the day that buried the Chargers in this one.
Looking to get the ball back late in the third quarter, all the Chargers had to do was keeo Hunt short of a first down and they would get a chance for one final drive. Hunt had back-to-back carries of four yards and five yards before running for two more on 3rd-and-1 to take the clock down to the two-minute warning.
Then, with the ball at their own 31-yard line, Hunt broke free for a 69-yard touchdown, putting an emphatic stamp on this win.

Bolts lay an egg in Arrowhead
December 16, 2017- Chiefs 30, Chargers: 13: Riding a long winning streak, the Chargers were the NFL’s hottest team when they rode into Arrowhead Stadium for a Saturday night game against their arch rivals. A win here and the Chargers likely get into the postseason.
Instead, it was a terrible performance.
The Chargers turned the ball over four times and gave up 174 yards on the ground as Hunt gouged them again. This time, he ran for 155 yards. In two games against the Chargers last season, Hunt racked up 327 yards and two touchdowns.
And, in the last eight meetings between these two teams, the Chiefs have outscored the Chargers by a total of 219-110.
