The Kansas City Chiefs travel to San Diego to take on the Chargers in a classic AFC West battle.
Kick off is set for 4:05 ET as two teams that have under performed this year look to redeem their season.
Kansas City Chiefs
After rattling off three consecutive victories, the Kansas City Chiefs find themselves in the middle of the playoff push in the AFC despite their 4-5 record.
Kansas City knocked off Pittsburgh and Detroit before heading into the bye week, then returned in Week 10 to throttle the Denver Broncos on the road.
The Chiefs defense was superb, intercepting Peyton Manning four times and limiting him to just five completions on 20 attempts.
Kansas City’s defense seems to be back to last year’s form as the team looks forward to another divisional matchup against the San Diego Chargers. Kansas City’s offense is starting to gel as well, though its defense is what’s standing out the most.
The Chiefs rank 10th in points scored and just 24th in total yards, so the offense has been hit or miss.
The defense, on the other hand, has been solid. Kansas City has allowed an average of 12 points per game over the last three weeks. The Chiefs will get an injury-riddled Chargers team on Sunday that possesses one of the NFL’s weakest running attacks.
San Diego Chargers
2015 has been an abysmal year for the Chargers. They’re almost certainly leaving San Diego, and the team they’ve put on the field has been disappointing all season long.
Even though Philip Rivers is having the best year of his career, the Chargers enter Week 11 with just two wins. The offense is without its two best receivers, both tight ends are banged up, running back Melvin Gordon can’t stop fumbling the football, and you’d think Rob Ryan was the defensive coordinator because they’re so bad.
The Chargers don’t really have anything to play for in this game except for pride.
They’re not making the playoffs, but they at least want to show up against one of their oldest rivals. San Diego does lead the league in passing offense, but that’s because they’ve been trailing by double-digits almost every game, forcing Rivers to throw the ball 60 times a contest.
The Chargers also rank 30th in rushing offense, due in large part to an injured offensive line and a rookie running back who’s yet to find his way.
San Diego will play tough during this game. It’s the team’s first game back from a bye, and the Chargers are hosting a team they can’t stand losing to.
They might not win, but it should still be close.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Under 44.5
Rivalry games always have a playoff feel to them. The Chargers will be a bit healthier off the bye, and their defense is sure to put up a better performance than what we’ve seen so far this season. Kansas City’s offense is ok, but it isn’t great.
The Chiefs also possess a tremendous defense, which plays right into this pick.
