On Sunday afternoon, the Kansas City Chiefs collected a 13-12 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Here’s some of what Tom Ruprecht overheard at SoFi Stadium.


  1. “If Andy Reid gives the wide receivers the day off, how will we be able to tell?”
  2. “The Chiefs scouted the Chargers for a solid week, but were never able to determine the name of their interim coach.”
  3. “The Chargers’ job is very attractive to head coaching candidates who don’t want to work deep into January.”
  4. “Wow... over the last six weeks, it seems like a lot of teams seem to have installed that evil Super Bowl turf that mysteriously affects only the Eagles.”
  5. “Imagine being a quarterback — and knowing that Chris Jones gets an extra million dollars if he crushes you.”
  6. “There was a moment — when Harrison Butker lined up for the potential game-winning field goal — that the tension rivaled that of a preseason game.”
  7. “Isn’t it interesting that after struggling with Patrick Mahomes all season, the offense suddenly explodes for six points when he doesn’t play?”
  8. “In one play, Mike Edwards put up as many points as Marquez Valdes-Scantling or Skyy Moore did all season.”
  9. “Okay... good team win! But now we’ve got a short week to prepare for the Miami Dolphins’ offense — and teach our parents how to sign up for Peacock.
