The Los Angeles Chargers exited the trap game with a win and now we get to focus on the Kansas City Chiefs.
Ugly wins are still wins! Just get me the win and let’s move on to the next one! Someone told me that it would not have been a win in the playoffs…. Ugly wins in the playoffs are still WINS in the playoffs! I will take an ugly win over a pretty loss every single day.
I know we want it to be pretty every single time, but we have seen this happen all too often. Would you rather have the game that the Patriots had on Sunday?

We have Kansas City next and getting a division title is still a possibility. We have been hanging around in the race and both teams are banged up. It is late in the season and this is what we are playing for. We don’t want to settle for a wild card spot. We want the division.
I will take an ugly win against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday! We are moving on from the ugly win against Cincy and looking toward the Chefs. Tyreek Hill was banged up after the game and so was Spencer Ware. Patrick Mahomes took a number of big hits in the game, but there are no excuses for anyone.
We have to come out under the lights again and prove ourselves all over again. We have been flying under the radar all year long and we got some respect after the Steelers game, but taking out the top team in their house will likely put us at the top of the totem pole.
Even after we win on Thursday, we would need some help in order to take home field advantage throughout the playoffs, but the possibility is still there.
Our playmakers will need to shine all over again. Last time we were under the lights, there were a number of stars that came out to shine. I expect them to step up again. Look out for Derwin James to make plays throughout the game. Look for Desmond King to start chirping throughout and look for him to make a big play somewhere. Joey Bosa gets his chance at the Chiefs this year.
On offense, Keenan Allen loves the lights. Look for him to tear up the defense and move those chains. Look for Philip Rivers to continue his MVP season. We will have to see what the running back situation looks like, but I expect Melvin to go.
