Kansas City enters the pivotal matchup hoping to get back to its September ways. The Chiefs roared out to a 4-0 start while averaging 33.8 points per game. Since then, KC has dropped four of its last six, averaging a modest 24.8 points an outing.
With Patrick Mahomes back under center, the Chargers could have their hands full on Monday night. Los Angeles has remained a major question mark around the league this season with each of its six losses coming by one possession. If Philip Rivers isn’t sharp (he already has 15 turnovers this season), Los Angeles could have trouble picking up a victory.
