Chiefs 37, Chargers 13
The Kansas City Chiefs started with the football and scored touchdowns on each of their first two drives— first on a rush by Kareem Hunt and then the very first receiving touchdown of Ross Travis’ career. The Chargers would cut the lead to 14-7 after a Hunter Henry touchdown, but after that it was a 23-6 run for Kansas City led by two touchdowns from Travis Kelce. Cairo Santos was a perfect 3 for 3 on the day.
1. Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt - 24 carries for 235 yards and a touchdown
2. Chargers WR Travis Benjamin - seven catches for 88 yards
3. Chiefs TE Travis Kelce - seven catches for 70 yards and two touchdowns
4. Chiefs defense - eight sacks, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery
5. Chiefs QB Alex Smith - 20/28 for 183 yards and three touchdowns
