The Chargers have dominated the Chiefs everywhere except on the scoreboard.
Los Angeles gained 312 yards on 43 plays and got into Kansas City territory on five of six first-half possessions. The Chargers’ two red-zone possessions ended at the Kansas City 9 and 8 and resulted in Michael Badgley field goals of 27 and 26 yards.
Badgley made a 49-yarder on the final play of the first half, but he missed a 40-yard field goal earlier and Philip Rivers has thrown two interceptions to keep the Chargers on the short end of scoring in the first half.
The Chiefs lead 10-9.
The Chiefs added a 41-yard Harrison Butker field goal with 1:43 remaining in the first half to cap a nine-play, 52-yard drive.
Patrick Mahomes has had his own problems, going 8-for-15 for 63 yards and an interception. It’s the fewest yards he ever has had in a first half in his career.
He does not have his lead receiver with Tyreek Hill having left after the first possession with a hamstring injury.
Mahomes is the team’s leading rusher with one carry for 24 yards.
The Chiefs have run only 23 plays and gained only 109 yards.
