The Los Angeles Chargers come to Arrowhead to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in an AFC West battle on Thursday Night Football. Both teams were victorious in week one, as each squad covered the spread, as well. The Chargers overcame a bit of a rally against the Raiders on Sunday to hold on, 24-19. Despite the Bolts sagging a little in the second half, their defense always had them in control, as they now take to the road to face a Chiefs team that really turned some heads on Sunday, with a rollicking 44-21 road win over the Cardinals. Patrick Mahomes threw five TDs, and any inkling that the Chiefs might not be the team to beat in the AFC has already been quieted a bit. Who can emerge in what has the looks of a high-powered divisional face-off on Thursday Night Football?
Different Context for the Chiefs on Thursday?
Not to take shots at the Cardinals’ defense, but the Chiefs might run into more resistance this week. First off, despite the sudden murkiness of the identity of the contributors on offense, the unit as a whole looked powerful. Mahomes was sharp and more productive than any other QB on the week. Among what remains are TE Travis Kelce and Clyde Edwards-Helaire, both of whom had big games on Sunday. But with Mahomes spraying the ball around to guys like JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdez-Scantling, Skyy Moore, and Mecole Hardman, it seems like variety is more the name of the game now. On the ground, we saw Isaiah Pacheco score a TD with 62 yards rushing. There are some new faces, but one shouldn’t expect different results.
But again, this isn’t the Cardinals’ defense. The Chargers have a lot of juice in all areas. We saw on Sunday that a Raiders offense with a lot of hope was never really able to establish a rhythm, other than some isolated big plays here and there and a few sustained big drives. Up-front, the Chargers bring a lot of menace with Joey Bosa, who had 1.5 sacks, joined by Khalil Mack, who made his Chargers’ debut in a big way with three sacks and a forced fumble. They picked off Carr thrice, as the pieces they added to an already-promising secondary have already started to pay off. Derwin James was all over the field, as the safety really gives them a different dimension on defense. So suffice to say that things could get a little trickier for the Chiefs on offense this week.
