The San Diego Chargers Blow Out the Kansas City Chiefs 43-14

This one was tough to watch - Chargers beat the Chiefs 43 to 14.

The Chiefs lost the turnover battle (-3) and allowed Philip Rivers to torch the defense all day long. Rivers finished the game passing 21/28, 317 yards and two TDs.

The San Diego receivers had big days as well. TE Antonio Gates caught seven passes for 118 yards and two touchdowns. WR Malcolm Floyd had three receptions for 85 yards and RB Darren Sproles added in 66 receiving yards on his own.

The bright spot on the Chiefs' offense was Jamaal Charles. He had fourteen carries for 93 yards. That's a 6.6 yard per carry average.

Here are some more thoughts that we'll be adding to.

The Good

  • Chris Chambers led all Chiefs receivers with 7 receptions for 70 yards and one touchdown
  • Jamaal Charles had 147 total yards including 93 rushing and a touchdown
  • Charles' YPC average was over six yards
  • Brandon Flowers broke up two deep pass plays and forced a Tomlinson fumble on the goal line

The Bad

  • Matt Cassel's interception bounced off a Chargers helmet

The Ugly

  • Rudy Niswanger's bad snaps including one the Chargers recovered
  • Jamaal Charles' fumble was at least a 10 point swing
  • Matt Cassel's fumble wasn't forced by anyone
