It's the Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers today at 3:25 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) for the regular season finale. For the Chargers, there is something to play for until proven otherwise as they're still in the playoff hunt depending on what happens in the early games. For the Chiefs, this game means nothing as they have already clinched a playoff spot and are locked into the No. 5 seed.
Because of those circumstances, we expect this to be a lopsided game. The fact that the Chiefs rarely win in San Diego these days and that it means nothing for Kansas City and that many of the starters may not play very much has me thinking that this game will be a blowout loss for Kansas City. But who cares? Playoffs, baby!
The goal for today's game is obviously to play injury-free football.
Here are all the details for today's game. Playoff info on the Chiefs first game will be coming at the conclusion of today's games.
