Arrowheadlines: Chiefs news 11/1

John Rieger-US PRESSWIRE

Today's Chiefs news from across the web.

NJ Chiefs Fan is still recovering from Sandy so I'm on Arrowheadlines duty again. Here is today's KC Chiefs news.

More than anything else, two failures are killing the Chiefs. By repeatedly committing turnovers, they're not only costing themselves a chance at points but also giving the opponent a short field with which to work. By consistently falling behind early, they're allowing the opponent to dictate the terms of the game to them. So things for the Chiefs would look a whole lot better Thursday night and for the rest of the season if they can those factors around. But turnovers and large deficits may be in their DNA. If that's true, they have no shot to beat the Chargers. Prediction: Chargers 30, Chiefs 13.

Crennel had a sterling reputation as a defensive coordinator, and it's on him to find a way to get the defense to perform better. If he doesn't, his second stint as an NFL head coach will come to a premature end. That's why I expect Crennel to sell out on early downs to stop Ryan Mathews andRonnie Brown on the ground in an attempt to force Rivers to throw against a loaded defense in passing situations. If the Chiefs can make San Diego one-dimensional, they'll have a chance to nab their second victory of the season.

So Crennel doesn't need to be told that the Chiefs are wearing a target and opponents are coming after them trying to pry the ball loose and force turnovers because it has happened so many times before.

Crennel coached special teams for the New York Giants when they committed 58 turnovers and finished 3-12-1 as a result. This year, he's head coach of the Chiefs, who have 25 turnovers in seven games heading into Thursday's game at San Diego.

The way quarterback Philip Rivers sees it, there's a fine line between saving the season and having it spin out of control.

"We make two or three plays and we're sitting here 6-1 and talking about, 'Are the Chargers the best team in the AFC?' " said Rivers, who at the end of last season lobbied for team President Dean Spanos to retain Turner. "And you don't make those plays and you're talking about, 'Oh, what in the world is wrong?'

The experts at CBS Sports agree, with a unanimous selection of the Chargers to win the game. Against the spread, however, only four of the eight experts are picking San Diego to cover. The Chargers are currently 8.5-point favorites.
