The Chiefs have taken the lead again in Los Angeles.

Tight end Travis Kelce‘s second touchdown gave Kansas City a 23-20 lead over the Chargers early in the fourth quarter.

The play opened the final period on third-and-4. Kelce went over the middle and caught the pass in a tight window, then bulldozed his way down the sideline for the score.

Kelce now has 98 yards on five receptions with a pair of touchdowns.

The Chiefs were down 20-13 at halftime but came out running to start the second half. Kansas City had eight runs and no passes on its first possession in the third quarter, which led to a 30-yard field goal by Harrison Butker. The Chiefs were stuffed on a third-and-1 run play, which led them to settle for three points.

Already thin at receiver, the Chiefs are down one more. Kadarius Toney has been downgraded to out with a hamstring injury.

Chargers linebacker Kenneth Murray had to exit the game early in the third quarter and has been announced as questionable to return with a neck injury.

  1. Why does a 6 foot 6 QB slide early so much when your team is trying to beat the top team in your division. For all the Tua haters for years that said Herbert should of been the pick, how does that taste now?

  2. Chiefs are missing a RT and two Safties. I mean that’s what they need to win a SB. The guys they have aren’t good enough.

  3. Travis Kelce is the best tight end of all time. I don’t care if he’s not an elite blocker. I’ll take him over Gronk, Gonzalez and Shannon Sharpe.

  4. And his 3rd TD was facilitated by a very Ticky tack call that most other pass catchers in the league simply do not get. That game winning drive was about to go to a 4th down but the zebras handed the Chiefs a new set over a contact that didn’t really transgress any part of the rule book.

    I didn’t have a dog in this fight, btw.
