Kansas City doesn’t need this.
It has the No. 1 seed all wrapped up with means it’ll get a full two weeks for the main man to rest up and get ready for the playoffs.
It’ll be debated about whether or not the team is sharp enough to use this game as a true scrimmage to get the backups some work, but at this point in the season it’s all about rest, rest, and rest.
On the flip side, the Charger team that couldn’t figure out how to win a close game – like the 23-20 overtime loss to the Chiefs back in Week 2 – now can’t seem to lose. It went from 3-9 to on the verge of terrific finishing kick after winning three straight thanks to playing mistake-free, and finally getting timely play, and …
Oh yeah. Chad Henne is playing in place of Patrick Mahomes.
Tyreek Hill is out for the Chiefs along with Clyde Edwards-Helaire. LeVeon Bell is iffy, the receiving corps is losing a slew of parts along with Hill, and everyone is just going through the motions.
Meanwhile, this means something to LA.
