The 37-7 Chargers win was the widest margin of victory in the history of games between the two teams.
The shuffling of players in the Chargers secondary paid off with a strong performance on Sunday.
The Chargers only managed one touchdown on four possessions inside the Chiefs five-yard line.
The Chargers ran the ball 36 times for 135 yards, striking a needed balance with their potent passing attack.
Chargers RB Jacob Hester blocked a punt and recovered it in the end zone.
Said Chiefs coach Todd Haley, “It wasn’t what was expected. We were all excited about playing the game. That probably makes it worse.”
Chiefs QB Matt Cassel hadn’t thrown an interception in 150 passes before throwing three of them en route to the loss.
Going for a fourth-and-one on their own 41 in the first quarter backfired and the Chiefs were quickly down 14-0.
The Chiefs have lost three straight games to the Chargers at Arrowhead Stadium for the first time since 1979-1981.
The Chiefs defense gave up six plays of 20 or more yards, including two 51-yarders.
