An early season AFC West rivalry as the Charges will host the defending Super Bowl Champs. Both sides are coming off a week one win, but both games were won in completely different ways.
The Chiefs showed they look just as good as last year, while their defense looked improved.
Kansas City Chiefs
Normally known for passing the ball, the Chiefs managed just 211 passing yards out of Patrick Mahomes. He still threw for three touchdowns on 24 of 32 passes, but they looked to the run much more than usual. Potential star, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, ran the ball 25 time for 138 yards an one touchdown in his NFL debut. If Kansas City continues to have a balanced attack, they are certainly going to be even tougher to stop.
Defense was an issue last year at times, yet they showed improvement in that first game. They were still hit for 264 passing yards, but just 118 rushing yards. Now facing a weak Chargers offense, they should have no trouble having success.
Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers won their opening game against the Bengals, but they looked terrible in the process. A shanked field to tie the game was the difference between a win and the chance to lose the game in overtime. Tyrod Taylor looked very poor for most the game, only throwing for 208 yards on 16 of 30. He failed to throw a touchdown as well.
Their rushing game was pretty good however, picking up 155 rushing yards as a team. Austin Eckler led the way with 84 yards, but Joshua Kelley also picked up 60 yards and was able to score.
In terms of their defense, they did a pretty good job limiting Joe Burrow in his NFL debut. They held his to 193 yards passing, forcing one interception. Though they allowed him to score on the ground from about 23 yards away. Even with a decent outing defensively, it was still against the Bengals. Obviously this Kansas City offense is miles better than Cincinnati, so they are likely in some trouble.
Something the Chargers must do better at is red zone offense. They were 1 of 3 in the game on Sunday, and if they do something similar against Kansas City, it will be a long afternoon

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Kansas City Chiefs -8.5
Based on how both teams looked in their opener, I can only look to the Chiefs here. They have a much more dynamic offense and I believe they will be able to easily run up the score. Further, I do not see Los Angeles scoring more than maybe 17 points, so I will gladly back Kansas City.
