The LA Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs square off for the first time this season in Week 7. The 2023 season has treated these two teams much differently as the Chiefs are once against atop the AFC while the Chargers are one of just a few AFC teams that are under .500 after losing to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football.
If there was ever a kitchen sink game for the Chargers it would be in Week 7 against the Chiefs. A loss doesn't drastically change the Chiefs' future while a loss for the Chargers could put the team in too big of a hole to dig out of.
Regardless of the outcome, there is one thing that is certain: it is going to be an entertaining game and it will be close. These two teams have turned in countless close battles and the first matchup of 2023 should be no different. Here is everything that fans need to know.
