The Chiefs are firing on all cylinders, and they are coming off a statement win against the Raiders last week. While the offense still has a couple of moments where they look a little shaky, the defense has come to play. Kansas City has given up single-digit point totals in four of the last five weeks, which is impressive regardless of the opponent. However, they must come to play tonight, facing a team that has played them tougher than anyone over the past few years.
For whatever reason, the Chargers have the Chiefs’ number. In six career games, Patrick Mahomes is averaging only 236.2 passing yards against them. On the LA side, this was the team that Justin Herbert made his impromptu first start against. He has been solid against the Chiefs, averaging 298 passing yards while throwing eight touchdowns to one interception in his three games. Herbert has also been Mr. Prime-Time, leading his team to a 3-1 record, averaging 295.5 passing yards and a 116.5 QB rating, and totaling 12 passing touchdowns to one interception in four night games. Can he do it again tonight?
