The Kansas City Chiefs have the season’s first division game — this one on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers in their brand-new So-Fi Stadium.

The Chiefs began their season with an impressive 34-20 victory over the Houston Texans — the team they defeated in the Divisional round of the playoffs on the way to winning Super Bowl LIV. After finishing fourth in the AFC West last season, the Chargers opened 2020 by edging out the Cincinnati Bengals 16-13.

Reigning Super Bowl MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes leads the Chiefs. He’s coming off a 211-yard, three-touchdown performance against Houston that earned him a sparkling passer rating of 123.3. After losing longtime starting quarterback Philip Rivers to the Indianapolis Colts in the offseason, the Chargers drafted Justin Herbert with the sixth overall pick of the NFL Draft — but then opted to begin the season with tenth-year veteran quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who passed for 208 yards (and no touchdowns) in the season opener.
