San Diego (4-2, 1-2 V) lost to the New York Jets 21-27, on the road, in Week 7. QB Phillip Rivers completed 16 of 32 for 179 yards and a touchdown, with two costly interceptions. RB Michael Tolbert had 11 carries for 58 yards with a touchdown, while WR Antonio Gates made five catches for 54 yards with a touchdown.
After getting through five full games without an injury, the San Diego Chargers offensive line ended up battered in bruised after losing the battle of the trenches with the New York Jets. Marcus McNeill left the game with a neck injury, worrisome because of his history of neck problems in the past, but is back to practicing with the team and expected to play against the Chiefs. Much more worrisome is the story about Kris Dielman that's just coming out now. Pro Bowl left guard Kris Dielman, who stayed in Sunday's road game against the Jets with a concussion, suffered a Gran Mal seizure as the team flight descended into San Diego, will miss at least the Chargers' next two games. Phillip Rivers has clearly not been playing up to his potential. The three-time Pro Bowler has seven touchdown passes to nine interceptions – four fewer than he had all of last season. He had no touchdowns and two interceptions in a 20-17 win over Kansas City on Sept. 25, a victory that started the Chargers' three-game winning streak.
Kansas City (3-3, 1-1 H) skunked the Oakland Raiders 28-0, on the road, in Week 7. Javier Arenas and Le'Ron McClain each added touchdown runs for the Chiefs on a day the Kansas City offense didn't have to do much at all. On defense Kendrick Lewis and Brandon Flowers returned interceptions for touchdowns.
It’s now six straight scoreless quarters and counting for the Chiefs defense. Embarrassed in the first half against Indianapolis, Kansas City’s defense has seen an amazing shift in fortunes over the last 90 minutes of play. Chiefs opponents aren’t just being held out of the end zone. They’re rarely even approaching it. In 17 offensive possessions over the last six quarters of play, Chiefs opponents have reached the Red Zone only twice. On those two drives, Kansas City took away the football each time. Kansas City ranks 25th against the run, 17th against the pass and 18th in total defense. The Chiefs poor start to the season certainly doesn’t help those numbers, but yardage totals don’t necessarily reflect the Chiefs style of play either. Get $50 in Free NFL Picks here.
