From Arrowhead Stadium
For years the Chargers have had trouble playing games that start at noon in the Central Time Zone. That’s a body clock kickoff at 10 a.m. for the guys from San Diego.
But the Lightning Bolts woke up bright eyed on Sunday in Kansas City. Instead, it was the Chiefs that slept walked through the first half. It was an embarrassment for all those wearing red and gold, as they turned the ball over six times β five times in the first half β and were soundly beaten by the Chargers 37-20.
Jamaal Charles scored two touchdowns for the Chiefs, but also fumbled the ball away twice. Matt Cassel threw three interceptions, two of those bouncing off receivers and into the hands of the Chargers. QB Philip Rivers did not light up the Chiefs defense; none of San Diego’s offensive players did. But they won easily and are now 3-1 on the season.
The Chiefs are 1-3 and have the Baltimore Ravens visiting in a week.
