San Diego Chargers
Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs (1-6) at San Diego Chargers (3-4) Thursday, 8:20 p.m. ET, NFL Network, Brad Nessler, Mike Mayock, Alex Flanagan Last meeting: In the first meeting this season on Sept. 30, the Chargers beat the Chiefs 37-20, jumping ahead 20-0 and scoring 24 points off six turnovers, including five first-half takeaways. Streaking: The Chargers have won four straight over Kansas City in San Diego, but this season are being outscored 72-65 at Qualcomm Stadium. ... This is the fifth time in six seasons the Chargers have a losing streak of at least three games. Give 'em a TO margin: The Chargers are No. 2 in the NFL in run defense (80.0 yards per game), but are in a prove-it spot this week. RB Jamaal Charles is fresh after logging but five carries Sunday, and San Diego was trampled by rookie Trent Richardson for 122 yards and a 26-yard TD in a 7-6 loss to the Browns in which the Cleveland offense was highly predictable. Kansas City's approach won't vary far from th...

Chiefs rookie WR Devon Wylie (hamstring) has resumed practicing on a full-time basis.Bothered by the injury since the season opener, Wylie has yet to play an offensive snap this year. Coach Romeo Crennel will let Wylie get some practice reps under his belt before considering him on kickoff and punt returns.
Wylie looked very good in preseason, and will probably be in line for some...
Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles left Thursday's game after taking a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit in the fourth quarter. The Chiefs are calling it a neck injury.Fantasy Spin:Matt Cassel threw an interception for a touchdown one play later to put Kansas City down 31-6 so Charles won't return. The good news is that the running back ran to the sideline after intially staying...
According to the Associated Press, the San Diego Chargers are unlikely to fire head coach Norv Turner during the season.
Turner has once again come under criticism for the team’s up and down start to the 2012 season. The Chargers are currently 3-4, but this weekend’s loss to the Browns was fairly demoralizing.
Owner Dean Spanos isn’t know for “knee-jerk reactions,” and...
Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe was targeted 10 times in Thursday's game against the Chargers. Bowe caught eight passes for 79 yards but lost a fumble in the first quarter.Fantasy Spin:Bowe came in having caught just six passes for 90 yards in the last two games. We think Matt Cassel is better for Bowe's fantasy value than Brady Quinn but neither quarterback really maximizes Bowe's talent.
San Diego wide receivers Eddie Royal and Robert Meachem are inactive for the Chargers' game against the Kansas City Chiefs because of hamstring injuries.
Also inactive for the Chargers on Thursday night are cornerback Chris Carr, safety Brandon Taylor, linebackers Larry English and Jonas Mouton, and tight end Ladarius Green.
Danario Alexander was expected to start in Meachem...
Matt Cassel will start for the Kansas City Chiefs with Brady Quinn ruled out of Thursday's AFC West game at San Diego. Quinn, who is 3-11 in his career as a starter, didn't finish Sunday's game against the Raiders because of concussion-like symptoms. Cassel has been a turnover machine, and the Chiefs have 25 giveaways, an NFL-worst. Head coach Romeo Crennel said Monday...

As the San Diego Chargers continue to flounder, head coach Norv Turner continued to fend off speculation that his job is on the line. The Chargers, who host the 1-6 Kansas City Chiefs at home Thursday, are coming off a 7-6 loss to the Cleveland Browns. San Diego (3-4) is in the midst of a three-game losing streak and hasn't scored a touchdown in six quarters. Those losses...
Matt Cassel is getting another chance to be the Chiefs' starting
After a promising start in 2012 the Chargers have regressed into the mediocrity that plagued them exactly a year ago. Not only does the offense look lost, QB Philip Rivers (10 TD, 9 INT, 6 FUM) a veteran leader, looks very confused as his wobbly balls down field time and time again fail to hit their spots. With no solidified star at running back and a defense...
Shelley Adler got a few chuckles with her last ad when she made a metaphor to former Eagles Pro Bowl lineman and current South Jersey Congressman Jon Runyan “blocking legislation.” In it, a Runyan a lookalike beat the crap out of old people.
Adler should have probably stuck to the comedy bits. Her latest ad pulls no punches. As Obama and NJ Governor Chris Christie have...
So this was it. This was the night that Matt Cassel could’ve saved his starting job. Could’ve saved the Chiefs from a 1-7 start and from forcing Chiefs fans into watching the Brady Quinn era unfold before their nearly gouged out eyes. Cassel could not have asked for a better matchup to prove his mettle as the Chargers ranked 10th worst in terms of fantasy QBs scoring against...
(AP) -- Mired in a three-game losing streak, the San Diego Chargers are looking for answers while the job security of coach Norv Turner is once again being questioned.
With Kansas City stuck in a four-game slide and tied for the worst record in the NFL, Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel might also face an uncertain future if he can't get things turned around.
The AFC West foes look...
