Why Los Angeles Chargers Will Win
Kansas City doesn’t care.
Oh it’ll put a football team out there, and it’ll have to play enough starters to have a game, but the main guys aren’t going. Chad Henne will get the start with Patrick Mahomes sitting out, the star receivers aren’t going to play, and with the No. 1 seed all locked up, the Chiefs will get a full two weeks to be able to rest anyone up.
The Chargers pushed the Chiefs into overtime way back in late September when both teams are fully functioning – it was Justin Herbert’s first game – and now the team is on a three-game winning streak with the offense playing well and the defense doing a great job of taking the ball away.
Why Kansas City Chiefs Will Win
The Kansas City backups will try.
It’s a weird situation. If the team sort of needed it, there might be a half-hearted attempt to win this. However, this is audition time for a whole lot to KC players who’ll want to either keep a job of have film for other places.
The Chargers are still having problems running the ball, the KC D will still be strong against the ground game even with a few guys out, and the coaching staff is still going to run things as close to normal – at least trying to without No. 15 under center.
What’s Going To Happen
Kansas City will be surprisingly solid for at least a little while, and then the team will just want to get to resting and relaxing already.
The Chargers will fight hard to close out with a four-game winning streak, the passing game will click just fine at home, and it’ll be a fun win for Los Angeles, if only to finish with seven wins and look solid in a great finishing kick.
