Chargers vs. Chiefs: 3 costly mistakes by KC highlight 1st quarter

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Our first quarter recap reads like a total meltdown because, well, it is.

The Chargers started off hot taking a 17-0 lead over the Kansas City Chiefs in the first quarter of Sunday's game. The score is mostly due to the Chiefs own turnovers and mistakes. Here are three mistakes by KC in the first quarter:

1. The Chargers took their first possession all the way down the field for a touchdown, making it 7-0 with this quick pass from Philip Rivers to Eddie Royal.

2. The Chiefs got the ball and threw two consecutive completions to Dwayne Bowe to start the drive. Then Matt Cassel was pressured on the third play and underthrew the ball to his receiver, leading to an interception by Eric Weddle.

You can't throw that ball short.

3. The Chargers kick a field goal to make it 10-0 and then we get this from Jamaal Charles:

Incredible. Charles not only fumbled but it took a Chargers bounce and ended up inside the 10-yard line.

If you're wondering how you meltdown. This is it.
