The LA Chargers are back at home for the first time in nearly a month to host the Kansas City Chiefs, who defeated the Bolts earlier this season in Week 2. A win for the Chiefs all but secures the AFC West title for them while the Chargers need a win to put them in a good spot to make a push for the playoffs.
The Chargers have been battling injuries all season while the Chiefs are starting to battle injuries of their own. Kansas City will be without both Mecole Hardman and Juju Smith-Schuster. Meanwhile, there is a chance that the Chargers get two receivers back in Keenan Allen and Mike Williams.
Every Chargers-Chiefs game has been appointment viewing since Justin Herbert made his first surprise start in Week 2 of the 2020 season. This intriguing Week 11 matchup cannot be missed.

Chargers vs Chiefs prediction:
We gave our prediction against the spread already in this game and things have changed since then. Things are looking really promising on the injury front for the Chargers while things are not looking as promising for Kansas City.
This is a cop-out answer, but the outcome of this game is going to come down to the status of Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. We have come up with a percentage chance of the Chargers winning this game based on who ends up playing.
If Allen and Williams both play then the Chargers have a 50% chance of winning this game. That might seem low, but it being a coin-flip against Kansas City is a great thing. They are the no. 1 seed in the AFC, after all.
If one of Allen or Williams plays then the Chargers will have around a 30% chance of winning this game. If neither Allen nor Williams plays then the Chargers will have around a 5% chance of winning this game.
