Chiefs' Alex Smith nearly out-rushed the entire Chargers team by himself

NFL Network's Steve Mariucci's bold prediction for the Chargers-Chiefs game was that Alex Smith would out-rush the Chargers all by himself. This was funny because the Chargers running game is so bad but also of interest for Chiefs fans because we have noticed that the Chiefs usually win when Smith rushes well.

So, who won?

It was close, really close. The Chargers had 44 total yards rushing while Alex had 40 yards rushing. So Alex was really close to out-rushing the Chargers all by himself.
