The San Diego Chargers take their 2-1 first place record into Arrowhead Sunday to face the Kansas City Chiefs 1-2.Arrowhead has been a house of horrors for the Chargers of late.Last year quarterback Philip Rivers fumbled the ball, while trying to kneel down and end the game with 1:03 left. Kansas City recovered the fumble.In overtime, Chiefs kicker Ryan Succup nailed a game-winning field goal.In 2010 the Chiefs scored on 96-yard punt return from then-rookie Dexter McCluster, and a 56-yard touchdown run by Jamaal Charles to win an opening day rain filled Monday-nighter.The Chiefs are coming off what fans hope to be a season turnaround game in New Orleans. After being down 18 points, the Chiefs came alive in the second half.Defensively they kept Saints quarterback Drew Brees in long field situations, and slowly but surely kicked their way back into the game. Succup kicked six field goals and Chiefs won in overtime. This was the biggest come from behind victory in Kansas City Chiefs...
BEST OF MAXIM

San Diego, CA. The San Diego Chargers are without a doubt, one of the most confusing franchises in all of sports. In recent years, they seem to always start the year slowly, wake up mid-season, and finish strong only to come up short in December or January. They have also proven to be a team who cannot be figured out, as they typically win games they should lose, and lose games...
Whenever there’s a conversation about the best quarterbacks in the NFL San Diego Chargers QB, Philip Rivers, is always thrown in the mix along with guys like Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and the Manning’s. The one thing Rivers does not possess that the others do is a championship, yet he’s often spoken about as if he’s won one.
Philip Rivers is a great fantasy football...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer There were moments when Jamaal Charles wasn't sure whether he'd ever be the same.
Might have been during rehab, when he was trying to squeeze out one more repetition with his surgically repaired left knee. Or when he took a handoff from Matt Cassel in practice, and the All-Pro running back would make a cut at the line...
Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel and OC Brian Daboll have a much different strategy regarding top back Jamaal Charles than former coach Todd Haley had. Whereas Haley wanted to keep Charles fresh, Crennel and Daboll are going to "ride Charles hard, whether it's for the best in the long-term or not," according to the Kansas City Star.Fantasy Spin:Charles topped his career high...
You remember this catch? Of course you do, FAITHFUL READER. It was at the end of the first half of the Sunday Night game in 2006. It is the only time the Chargers have beaten the Steelers since the 1994 AFC Championship game. It was the first time we saw that Philip Rivers could truly pass the Chargers to a win. Malcom Floyd would also go on to prove himself as the Chargers...
The AFC West is getting worse than the Big Ten these days and that is thanks to both of the favorites performing like duds lately.
Philip Rivers and the Chargers offense has been a joke without a healthy Ryan Mathews in the backfield, but they should be in contention for a division title all season long.
Rivers has 4 TD and 3 INT, but 688 yards are skewed numbers once you realize...
Last week: 27 (+0)
Defense is key for this team. If they can play good defense, it will allow them to unleash Jamaal Charles and take the pressure off of Matt Cassel. Charles had a huge game last week and looked every bit the back he was in 2010 before his injury, only Todd Haley is no longer the coach so they are now utilizing him properly. However, the defense was horrendous...
San Diego Chargers (2-1) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-2)
Looks like the Chargers aren’t over their early season woes. They beat two crappy teams in week 1 and 2, but much like last year, they got destroyed once they played a real opponent. Last year they started 4-1, beating crappy teams, most of them by small margins, but lost 6 straight once the schedule got harder. Before last year...
Kansas City Chiefs center Rodney Hudson is not on anyone’s fantasy football team in 2012. Most owners have absolutely no idea who Hudson even is, as he is not eligible to be drafted or picked up off of waivers in any league. So tell me how it could be that his injury could hurt so many fantasy teams going forward?
It is simple.
Although Hudson is not on any fantasy team, Jamaal...
The Atlanta Falcons welcome the rival Carolina Panthers to the Georgia Dome in a crucial NFC South match-up. The Falcons are coming off a huge win against Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers. In that game, Matt Ryan completed 75% of his passes for 275 yards. He also threw three more touchdowns while leading his team to the decisive victory. Also leading the way for the...
The Chargers and Chiefs have authored some exciting games over the past few years. Expect that trend to continue on Sunday as they collide with first place in the AFC West on the line. Our Scout.com team experts, Michael Lombardo and Nick Athan, break down the big game, talking about Philip Rivers' struggles in Arrowhead, San Diego's defensive deficiencies and much more.
The San Diego Chargers know how important ball security is in the National Football League. They have stressed it with quarterback Philip Rivers, as he has worked to make better decisions on offense. But while Rivers was never in jeopardy of losing snaps or being benched, the same cannot be said for starting and oft injured running back Ryan Mathews.
Chargers GM A.J. Smith is a big...
Mediocrity and the San Diego Chargers seem to go hand in hand.At times, the Chargers look dominant and ready to take control of the AFC West. However, there are other times when the seat really heats up for Norv Turner.Last week's drubbing by the hands of Atlanta 27-3, makes us sports fans really scratch their heads.Meanwhile, the Chiefs were dead in the water trailing 24-6...
One incredible performance from an inspirational young man, big time returns for guys named Mojo and Charles and some serious letdowns highlight this weeks three up, three down.
Torrey Smith, WR Baltimore Ravens
Perhaps the most inspirational performance in a football game since Brett Favre’s Monday night showing in December 2003 after his father passed away. Torrey Smith...
