The LA Chargers are 1-1 on the 2021 season and are entering a tough stretch of games that really could make or break the season. The Bolts are on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3 and then take on the Las Vegas Raiders, Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots.
It was extremely important that the team started 2-0 to get as much cushion as it could and now it has to buckle down and get through this tough stretch. If the Chargers can go 4-2 in these six games then that would be a massive win for the team.
No win would be bigger than a win over the Chiefs on their home field. The Chiefs are also 1-1 after falling to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2 and the Chargers have the chance to do something special.
It is still very early in the season but the Chargers can give the Chiefs their first losing record of the Patrick Mahomes era.

LA Chargers vs. Kansas City Chiefs prediction for Week 3:
Last week I picked Chargers -3 and the over of 55 points against Dallas and went 0-2. This followed a 2-0 start in Week 1 so my record on the season is 2-2 with these predictions.
Charger fans are going to be pleased that I am picking Chargers +6.5 in this game. However, I do not think that the Chargers are going to win this game. I know that it is better to be an optimistic fan but there is a reason why the Chiefs have never had a losing record with Patrick Mahomes.
This game is in Arrowhead and that is going to be tough for Justin Herbert and co. This is the first time that Herbert has played in front of a real Arrowhead crowd and it is going to make a difference.
I think the Chargers will keep the Chiefs from having a massive game as they always succeed in limiting Patrick Mahomes and will also keep the football away from him as much as possible with long drives against the Chiefs' defense.
It will be a close game but I do believe that the Chiefs will pull it out in the end. My final score prediction for the game is Chiefs 27, Chargers 24, meaning that I am taking under 55.5 points as well.
