Vegas Play of the Day: Los Angeles Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs

Adjust Comment Print

For what it's worth: Only one team in that span with an FPI over 6 has had only seven wins at this point in the season and none has had fewer.

Back in Week 3, Philip Rivers had what was arguably his worst game of the season.

In each of the last three games, that's true because the Lions must win out and hope the NFC South teams in contention have some losses this month.

The Chargers started the season 0-4 but quickly made some adjustments and are heading into this Week 15 matchup tied with the Chiefs at 7-6, riding a four-game winning streak.

2-6 record in last 8 games (opened 5-0 in '17). Chiefs lead series, 59-54-1. Fernando Ramirez looks at the Chargers while Derek Togerson deals with the Chiefs keys to victory. This game could be a tight, back-and-forth affair but with a line this low you have to go with who you think will win, and that's the Chargers. Sure, the Chiefs went off to a 5-0 start and have lost six of their last eight games - but that doesn't matter if they win in their second head-to-head opportunity against the Chargers.

Bears Rookie TE Adam Shaheen Inactive Against Lions
Fans on social media were particularly irked when the Bears , facing a 4th-and-1 at midfield in the first half, opted to punt. Thanks to two field goals and a touchdown in the first half, the Lions are nearly there and had a 13-3 lead at halftime.

Allen has been on fire of late, catching 39 passes for 547 yards and four scores in the last four games.

The Chargers offensive line has been one of the unsung heroes of this season. This game will come down to which team will protect their quarterback better.

PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: Chiefs DL Jarvis Jenkins.

Any NFL fan will find plenty to like in this prime time match-up between two division rivals with identical records.

Who the Public Likes: As of Saturday morning, 53% of betting tickets is on the Chiefs while 55% of the money is also on Kansas City to either win or cover the spread.

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee dies of heart attack at 65
At that time, voters will select an interim Mayor to serve out the remainder of Lee's term, that would have ended January 8, 2020. In November 2011, Lee reluctantly ran for election and won, breaking a promise to the board of supervisors that he wouldn't run.

FAST FACTS: Chargers QB Philip Rivers passed for 319 yards and two touchdowns, with no interceptions, in Week 14.

How can you tune in to the NFL Network Special on Saturday featuring San Diego and Kansas City?

Because in many ways the result of this game, and season, marks the end of an era in Kansas City. His 147-yard (and two-TD) day in the 33-7 drubbing of the Cincinnati Bengals last week saw him top the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the second straight season since being picked up in the fifth round of the 2016 draft. All signs point toward Patrick Mahomes taking over at quarterback in 2018, leading to the departure of Alex Smith after this season. The schedule features two games between division opponents, one of which could determine a playoff berth. LB Justin Houston had a sack in Week 14.

FPI evaluates team strength going forward, but what about how the Chargers have actually played over their 13 games this year?

Other things to watch for: Marcus Peters vs. Keenan Allen, Tyreek Hill reaching 1,000 yards receiving for the season (he's at 986), and playing the field position game.
