NFL Odds: Chargers and Chiefs Clash in AFC West Showdown

by: Staff Writer - posted on: 10-Dec-2018

Thursday Night Football features two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL as Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs go toe-to-toe with Philip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers. With the AFC West division on the line in this one, Los Angeles will attempt to atone for a Week 1 loss to the Chiefs and draw even with Kansas City in the standings.

A lot has happened since Week 1, but that was the last time Kansas City and Los Angeles saw each other. The result of that early-season meetup was a 38-28 victory by the Chiefs. Despite 13 weeks passing since, that win is all that separates these two clubs. Following an improbable Week 14 victory over the Baltimore Ravens, the Chiefs (11-2) clinched a playoff berth and held on to first place in the AFC West.

With an impressive 10-3 record, Los Angeles sits in the first Wild Card spot in the AFC and just one game behind Kansas City. While Los Angeles ranks a respectable sixth in the NFL in team offense, averaging 28.3 points per game, the Chiefs lead the league with 37 points scored per game. This matchup will be won on the offensive side of the ball, so be sure to tune in for a high-scoring affair. Kick-off is 8:20 PM ET.c
