The Chiefs vs Chargers game will begin at 4:25 p.m. ET / 1:25 p.m. PT today (Sunday, Sept. 20). It's on CBS.

It's almost time for today's Chiefs vs Chargers live stream, which is a battle of 1-0 teams. Everyone's pretty sure Kansas City has got this in the bag, as Patrick Mahomes has the confidence of most, and LA's Week 1 win is seen as somewhat of a hollow victory.

Yes, in last week's Chargers/Bengals NFL live stream, it was less about LA winning than Cincy bungling it up, with Randy Bullock's erring field goal attempt throwing away what should have been Joe Burrow's first win (and he lost again against Cleveland).

Meanwhile, in the season opener against Houston, Mahomes and KC put in a dominant win, 34-20, and the QB only had 3 touchdowns, meaning the rest of the Chiefs were responsible for the other 13 points. The Chargers, of course, will seek to slow down the Chiefs' offense, and who knows if they'll be able to. 

If Los Angeles' big strategy is simply limit the big plays, then they're already doomed. As we saw against the Texans, Mahomes is more than ready to lead an efficient offense, as the longest pass of that game was 19 yards. 

Here are the best ways to watch the NFL season continue with Sunday's Chiefs vs Chargers live stream:
