Chiefs lose, 37 to 7.

This was easily the worst Kansas City Chiefs performance of the year. The Chargers dominated in every aspect of the game.

Philip Rivers was 18/30 for 268 yards and three touchdowns. The Chiefs gave up three big pass plays in the game, making me wonder what the heck happened to our secondary this week.

Here are a few thoughts on the game, which I'll be updating. Joel is in the locker room as we speak.

The Good

  • Dwayne Bowe made up for an inexcusable drop in the third quarter with an amazing TD catch on the sideline of the end zone.
  • 121 yards rushing is a good performance for this team right now.

The Bad

  • Jamaal Charles completely whiffed on blocking Jacob Hester on a Chiefs punt in the fourth quarter, resulting in a blocked punt/TD for Hester.
  • Dwayne Bowe still dropping passes.

The Ugly

  • Matt Cassel threw three picks and two of them were clearly the result of bad passes.
  • The Chiefs were 3/15 on third down.
  • We only had 82 yards passing.
