Chiefs vs Chargers Predictions and Picks
Oddsmakers can give the Chargers twice the points that they are already spotting them and there aren’t a whole lot of football gamblers that would take that bet after watching QB Patrick Mahomes play in Week 1 like he was ready for his second Lombardi Trophy already.

In the first game of the 2020 season after a bizarre offseason and zero preseason games, nobody expected the Kansas City Chiefs to play like the well-oiled machine that they obviously still are, and thank QB Patrick Mahomes and HC Andy Reid for that.
The Los Angeles Chargers are only 1-0 because they beat a Bengals team in Week 1 that got busted for a questionable OPI at the end of the game, so credit new QB Tyrod Taylor for being the journeyman he is and stepping in like he owned the place.
These two AFC West Rivals have matched up 120 total times (including 1 postseason game), with the Chargers winning 56 of those games and the Chiefs winning 63 of them, with one tie ball game in the mix.
Can Patrick Mahomes and His Chiefs Be Beaten?
It seems like a dumb question this early in the season but watching Mahomes play in Week 1 made a lot of fans wonder if their own team could ever measure up to what they saw the Chiefs do repeatedly.
Which is score at will while stopping the opposition from doing the same, which given that was Deshaun Watson and his excellent Texans, that was as impressive a seasonal debut as it gets.
One of the many great things about the NFL, though, is how even things end up being by the end of seventeen weeks, so it will be interesting to watch these Chiefs and the direction they take after starting out with the bar raised so high.
Can Chargers RB Austin Ekeler Give Them the Rushing Attack They Need?
Chargers offensive coordinator Shane Steichen want the team to have an effective rushing attack to help their new QB Tyrod Taylor out of the backfield, and that’s where Austin Ekeler comes in.
Last week, the fourth-year back posted 19 carries for 84 yards and no touchdowns, averaging 4.4 yards per carry in addition to catching a pass for 3 yards.
The team needs Ekeler to not only churn out yards on the ground and with receptions, they need him to score touchdowns for them, something he did eleven times last season on the ground and through the air.
Chiefs Key Player: (RB) Clyde Edwards-Helaire
Anyone who saw Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire in Week 1 knows they witnessed the emergence of a superstar, the rookie, and former LSU standout having himself the game of a lifetime against the Texans.
In his NFL debut, Edwards-Helarie carried the ball 25 times for 138 yards and a touchdown, giving the Chiefs some much-needed run support out of the backfield to balance off of Mahomes’ excellent passing attack.
The key to this season and repeating a Super Bowl visit/win will be having the kind of rushing attack we saw from Ewards-Helaire in Week 1, where he looked fast and tough to tackle giving his Chiefs’ offense an entirely new dimension.
Chargers Key Player: (DE) Joey Bosa
One of the key reasons for the success of the LA Chargers is their defensive end, Joey Bosa, who caused opposing quarterbacks to lose sleep the night before any games, his sacking abilities off the NFL charts.
Take Week 1, for example, with Bosa already posting his first sack, plus 5 total tackles, 2 of those for a loss plus 3 quarterback hits, and that was with limited play due to an injury.
Bosa hurt his triceps during that Week 1 game, so now he is listed as questionable for this Week 2 matchup with the Chiefs, but chances are unless his arm is literally hanging by a string of cartilage, Bosa will suit up and give his team the pass rush they need to win this one.
