Sunday NFL Football Analysis: Kansas City is coming into this game after their first loss of the season at the hands of the Denver Broncos, with another contest against them at home coming next weekend.  In the meantime, Coach Andy Reid’s team will try to get back on track Sunday against the struggling San Diego Chargers.  After holding opponents to 17 points or fewer in winning each of its first nine games, Kansas City lost 27-17 at Denver in last Sunday’s highly touted showdown. The Chiefs, averaging an 3.6 sacks, first in the league, have now gone without one in consecutive weeks after failing to get any pressure on Broncos QB Peyton Manning.  The biggest concern for the Chiefs moving forward is their lack of offensive production.  QB Alex Smith, is last in the NFL with 5.97 yards per attempt and completed just 21 of 45 passes for 230 yards against Denver. Running back Jamaal Charles will be a key for the Chiefs offensively against a Chargers defense he has been successful against in the past.  The Chargers have lost four of five including a 20-16 loss at Miami last Sunday.  Philip Rivers threw for almost 300 yards and Ryan Mathews had a season high 127 yards rushing but they just couldn’t get the ball in the end zone.  Tight end Antonio Gates will play a major factor in this game, he is a coverage problem for any opposing defense and offensive yards are going to be hard to come by for the Chargers against the Chiefs stout defense.  Danny Woodhead catching passes out of the back field on plays when Kansas City brings pressure will also help keep the Chargers in this game.  Kansas City might not be as prepared for this game with matchups against Denver sandwiching it but they need this win at home for that second Denver matchup to have any meaning.

San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs Game Prediction: 27-26 Kansas City
What to expect in this NFL Football match up: This is a must win game for San Diego if they’re going to have any hope of saving their season and Kansas City might come out flat after their first loss.  The combination of short dink and dunk passes to WR Keenan Allen, Antonio Gates and Danny Woodhead will help take some of the pressure off of the Chargers offensive line.  This will help them move the ball surprisingly effectively and they will score some points.  Unfortunately, their defense doesn’t force any turnovers and commits too many penalties on the road for them to pull this game out in the fourth quarter.
