Chargers rolling over Chiefs

The Chargers and Chiefs ended last season in very different places, but you’d probably guess wrong about which team was in the dumps last year based on the first 20-plus minutes of this season.

Philip Rivers hit Danny Woodhead for a four-yard touchdown with just under eight minutes to play in the first half and the Chargers lead the Chiefs 21-3 after reaching the end zone all three times they’ve had the ball thus far.

Running back Melvin Gordon scored the first two touchdowns, making a nice change from his scoreless rookie season, and Rivers has completed 11 of 13 passes for 116 yards to pace the offense down the field with relative ease. Gordon and Woodhead have combined for 66 rushing yards to keep things balanced for the Chargers.

The Chiefs started last season 1-5 before winning their final 10 regular season games, so it’s probably wise not to rule them out just yet. Cleaning up their tackling and protecting Alex Smith better after two early sacks would be good ways to get things moving back in the right direction.

    Gonna be hard to mount a comeback when Alice Smith can’t throw a ball longer than 5 yards.
