The Chargers are the favorites in this game with the 1-6 Chiefs struggling to do anything right this season. Is it too much to ask to hold a lead, even if for one second? That's all I want from the Chiefs, which shows you how low the bar has been set.
Strange things do tend to happen when the Chiefs and Chargers play. Last year on Halloween Philip Rivers inexplicably fumbled as the Chargers were nearing a game winning fumble. The year before that was the great Monday nighter at Arrowhead. (I'm conveniently leaving off the fact that this game is in San Diego, where the Chiefs haven't won in four years).
