This Given Sunday:
The Chargers had the game won. It was 20-20 with just over a minute left. The Chargers were content milking the clock down to about three seconds and kicking the game winning field goal as time expired. On Halloween night, fate decided to give the Chargers a trick instead of a treat. Phillip Rivers' job was to center the ball for a field goal, but he couldn't handle a routine snap from under center, and the Chiefs pulled out of the ensuing pile with the football and a breath of life.
They didn't waste it.
After holding the Chargers in over time, the Chiefs marched down the field for a chip shot winning field goal that capped off an ugly, yet entertaining, night of football that featured 8 turnovers, 21 penalties, and 7 field goals.
The Chiefs were able to pour it on early, leading the Chargers 13-3 at halftime, but Nick Novak got the game close with a trio of 3rd quarter field goals making the score 12-13 going into the 4th quarter.

''This,'' Rivers said on the sideline, ''is the worst day ever.''
Only for the Chargers.
It was awfully good...
Philip Rivers might have had more difficult games from a statistical perspective, but Monday night’s loss had to be emotionally draining. Whatever the reason for his poor play, Rivers’ slide leaves the Chargers in a precarious situation in the deadlocked AFC West.
The Chargers are 4-2 and in first place, but have looked anything but dominant getting there. Monday Night the team faces the Chiefs in Kansas City.
The last team to beat the Chiefs was the Bolts, a month ago at the Q. This time around things will look a little different.
Here are four keys to a success Monday night:

The San Diego Chargers will sign free agent defensive end Everette Brown as long as he passes a physical. Brown was released prior to this season by the Carolina Panthers who selected him in the second round of the 2009 NFL draft. In his first two seasons in the NFL, Brown only has a total [...]
The San Diego Chargers have signed free agent Everette Brown, who played two seasons at defensive end for the Carolina Panthers.

The San Diego Chargers invade Arrowhead, where it's always difficult to beat the Kansas City Chiefs. It's Halloween, too, so you're not going to want to miss the...
