The LA Chargers improved to 2-1 on the season with a tremendous 30-24 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs have a losing record for the first time in the Patrick Mahomes era and the Chargers got rid of the nasty taste of defeat from Week 2.
As we do with every Chargers win, let's break down the great, the good and the ugly from the Week 3 outcome.
The great from the LA Chargers Week 3 win:
We can't start this article any other way than by mentioning Mike Williams. The coaching staff raves about Williams before the season and he has been as good as advertised and more.
Williams is looking like the receiver that the Chargers took with the seventh overall pick in 2017. He has been nothing short of fantastic all season and today was the best thus far.
Williams finished with seven receptions for 122 yards and two touchdowns. He now has 395 yards and four touchdowns in only three games.
Decision to go for it on the game-winning drive
While I personally didn't love the decision to kick a field goal on fourth and goal, it ended up paying off for the Bolts as Alohi Gilman intercepted Patrick Mahomes.
The Chargers drove and got into field-goal range and instead of kicking it, the Bolts went for it on fourth and nine and picked up a pass interference for the first down.
Shortly after the Bolts scored the go-ahead touchdown. With the wind conditions and Tristan Vizcaino’s inaccuracy, Brandon Staley laid it all on the line and it paid off.
