The Chiefs (7-2) are atop the AFC West as they head into this matchup and looking to improve to 3-0 in the division. Kansas City’s success is of course based on the play of Patrick Mahomes, but the former MVP now has perhaps the deepest team he’s ever played with helping the cause.

Yes, of course Tyreke Hill, now with Miami, was a game-changing talent with the Chiefs and there is no replacing that. But now joining the steadiness of Travis Kelce is a cast of unlikely helpers. The K.C. from office is enjoying a break out run by their 7th round rookie running back Isiah Pacheco who has averaged 4.7 yards-per-carry since becoming the team’s number one running back. The Chiefs have also breathed new life into second-year former first round pick wideout Kadarius Toney after he was acquired via trade with the Giants three weeks ago. Another Mahomes weapon, Marquez Valdez-Scantling, who spent the first four years of his career with the Packers has become a consistent target for Mahomes with 26 catches already this season, matching his total from a year ago.

The Chargers (5-4) are second in the division and looking to gain ground on the first place Chiefs. Los Angeles seemed like they were on the right path just a few short weeks ago. They had won three-straight, but then hit a snag in the form of a 37-23 loss to the Seahawks before taking their bye in week 8. L.A. has split their two games since; overcoming a 10-point deficit to beat the Falcons on the road 20-17, then last week, falling to the 49ers 22-16.  

Justin Herbert, the offensive rookie of the year three seasons ago, has had some struggles this season. Herbert is on pace for the lowest passer rating of his young career and fewest touchdowns thrown. The fact that the Chargers’ run game has been less than electric has taken it’s toll on the quarterback. L.A. averages just 84.9 rush-yards-per-game, which ranks third worst in the NFL.

Los Angeles' defense deserves most of the blame for the teams’ mediocre record. The Chargers’ D has allowed an alarming 25.3 points-per-game, 4th most in the league.

The Action Network has the Chiefs as 5.5 road favorites against the Chargers (down from -6.5 earlier this week). The game marks the second time in as many weeks the Chargers will play on Sunday night. Herbert is 4-5 in primetime games over his career while Patrick Mahomes is 18-7.
