Chargers rally to tie game after Chiefs score first

Philip Rivers AP

With a wild-card spot for the taking, the Chargers’ defense got off to a poor start Sunday against Kansas City.

Luckily for the Chargers, their offense came ready to play.

Philip Rivers‘ 22-yard TD pass to tight end Ladarius Green evened the score at seven with 10:44 left in the first quarter in San Diego.

The Chiefs, who are starting backup quarterback Chase Daniel and a host of reserves on offense, scored first on a 17-yard TD run by rookie tailback Knile Davis less than two minutes into the game.

The Chiefs also got a 48-yard completion from Daniel to wideout A.J. Jenkins on the five-play, 80-yard scoring drive.

The Chiefs are locked into the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs and appear likely to take the season finale as an opportunity to give quite a few backups a chance to play. The Chargers, meanwhile, will clinch the No. 6 seed in the AFC with a victory.

    With the way the Chiefs Backups are playing, it really makes you wonder just WTH the Chiefs were doing against the Chargers at Arrowhead.

    Bad choice to rest some of the starters! No momentum = no playoff win = Chiefs are a fraud!
