The three best things from Chargers-Falcons

The Chargers actually pullled out a victory. A tremendous comeback led by the great performances of Melvin Gordon and Tyrell Williams. In a stunning display, The San Diego Chargers were uncharacteristically solid at the end of their game against the Atlanta Falcons. Philip Rivers made some great throws, the defense held strong against the run and Melvin Gordon ran harder than ever. Finally, Chargers fans will wake up Monday morning with a smile. Melvin Gordon Melvin Gordon was a beast today. Of course, his yards per carry stat was low, but he provided some tough runs that kept drives alive...

Chargers - Falcons Final Score: Falcons 30 Chargers 33 for the win in OT

Chargers find a way to win in OT playing a complete game. This was a different story this week. The Chargers, who have started every game quickly this year and gone into halftime with the lead were actually trailing 27-17 at the half this week. The team came out flat and had 2 first half turnovers on offense, an interception as a pass bounced off Dexter McCluster’s hands out of the backfield for an easy pick, and a fumble from Philip Rivers on a sack. Special teams also looked as bad as it has all season in the first half. Griff Whalen took a ball out of the endzone when he shouldn’t...

Chiefs Hold Off Mistake Filled Saints 27-21 to Move to 4-2

Spencer Ware ran for 77 yards to go with his 46-yard touchdown reception, and Tyreek Hill made an acrobat 38-yard TD […]

BREAKING: Caraun Reid carted off vs Falcons

It’s only the 1st quarter and already the Chargers have someone carted off After a relatively injury free week 6, the Chargers have had another injury in the 1st quarter here in week 7. Caraun Reid has been carted off the field with a lower leg injury to his left leg. Reid was hustling down field after a short completion and Denzel Perryman came flying over the pile and caught Reid right below the knee just as he had planted his left leg. Reid was pounding the cart with anger as they drove him off. Hopefully this one looked worse than it is, but with the Chargers’ injury luck this...

This awful and unnecessary Saints penalty iced the game for the Chiefs

Leading 24-21 the Kansas City Chiefs were potentially facing a third and eight against the Saints. That third down turned into a first down when Saints defensive lineman Nick Fairley did this away from the play: Nick Fairley bailed the Chiefs out. Very lucky to get the W after a fairly bad offensive game considering opponent. pic.twitter.com/fFkrXz2NgZ— Clay Wendler (@ClayWendler) October 23, 2016 This wasn’t a case of being over aggressive. The play was on the other side of the field. This is a case of being stupid. This 15-yard penalty gave the Chiefs a first down with a little...

San Diego Chargers at Atlanta Falcons: Week 7 inactives

No surprises this week. No surprises among Chargers' inactives vs. Falcons: OLB Attaochu, CB Flowers, S Addae, DE Philon, C Tuerk, TE Cleveland, T Burwell.— Michael Gehlken (@sdutGehlken) October 23, 2016 This is pretty good news for the Chargers. Jerry Attaochu, Brandon Flowers, and Jahleel Addae had all previously been ruled out, so their absences come as no surprise. Travis Benjamin was the only other man with his status in question for Sunday, but it looks like he'll be ready to suit up and go as normal against the Falcons. This is fortunate since the Charges will need to match...

The Chiefs can be very dangerous if Tyreek Hill can keep making catches like this

Throughout training camp we kept telling you that Tyreek Hill was making plays in the passing game. His hands looked legit as he was catching everything thrown his way. It’s hard to tell what will translate in camp and what won’t. It appears after a few weeks that Tyreek’s hands are indeed the real deal. Alex Smith wound up and fired one deep from 38 yards out. Check out Tyreek’s ability to adjust while the ball is in the air and make the catch. One-handed TD catch by #Chiefs' Tyreek Hill? CHECK. https://t.co/f90kHyWyKi— Jeff Rosen (@jeff_rosen88) October 23, 2016 That’s...

Chiefs get flagged for sticking up for Alex Smith

Alex Smith is slowly starting to find his legs. He rushed for a few yards to the right side and although he slid he was hit hard by the Saints’ Kenny Vaccaro. There was no flag called on the play. A few plays later, Alex ran to his left and got the first down and was hit as he stepped out of bounds. While it appeared the hit was legal as Alex was in bounds at the time, his Chiefs teammates took exception to the hit and went after the Saints. Check out Charcandrick West here: Vine: Charcandrick West says don't treat my QB Alex Smith like that. #Chiefs https://t.co/1mOpcBKxKM— Jeff...

Plays like this from Spencer Ware make it easier for Chiefs to rest Jamaal Charles

Spencer Ware is a great runner. I mean, really good. He took a screen pass against the Saints and, along with some great blocking, zigged and zagged his way to the end zone for a 46-yard touchdown run. It’s the longest scoring play of his career. Spencer Ware https://t.co/vzdKWy4toA— Papí♏️ (@mannsoosuave) October 23, 2016 (Watch the whole play here) He’s not Jamaal Charles but he’s still very good in the open field. I didn’t think that pass catching or running in space was one of his strengths but this run clearly proves me wrong. He has a second gear with his speed...

Jamaal Charles in, Phillip Gaines out for Chiefs-Saints game

The Kansas City Chiefs will have one key player and be without another in today’s game against the New Orleans Saints. The Chiefs have declared RB Jamaal Charles ACTIVE for the game while CB Phillip Gaines is inactive. Jamaal popped up on the injury report on Friday with swelling in his knee, putting his status for Sunday in doubt. However, an ESPN report on Sunday morning said the Chiefs were optimistic he could play but would check him out in pregame. Apparently that check came back good. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him with a limited workload. Meanwhile, Gaines tweaked his knee...

KC holds a fourth quarter lead with lots of Spencer Ware. Similar game as Oakland last week. -Joel Thorman Saints 24 Chiefs 21 I hate to say this, write this, think this. I think the Chiefs can and should win this game. I think the Saints are definitely the lesser team. But I have a feeling, a sinking feeling.

Chiefs hope Jamaal Charles can be active with limited workload, will test him pregame

The Kansas City Chiefs inactives will be out in about two hours and it sounds like Jamaal Charles’ name will not be on there as the Chiefs are optimistic he can play in this game. He was listed as questionable with a limited Friday practice due to swelling in his knee.

Arrowheadlines: Chiefs-Saints game day, gimmicky offense, Andy Reid's 300th game

Chiefs game plan: Scouting the New Orleans Saints (2-3) | The KC Star The Saints’ run defense has not been good through five games, and given the way the Chiefs pounded away at Oakland on Sunday — to the tune of 183 yards in 40 carries, a solid 4.6-yard average — they owe it to themselves to see if they can keep it up. Quarterback Alex Smith seemed to revel in the ground-heavy attack, managing the game and distributing the ball in a super-efficient 19-for-22 performance. The Raiders have a more talented defense than the Saints do, so why not see if a repeat performance is in...

All eyes on a questionable Jamaal Charles before Chiefs-Saints

We were all feeling good about Jamaal Charles’ return with 11 touches last week. He went through a solid week of practice and with a weak Saints defense coming up we thought this could be a big game for him. Then Friday came where Jamaal was limited in practice and listed as questionable with swelling in his knee. Hmm. That this came on Friday is a concern here. Players that are hurt in a game usually have a week to recover. Jamaal has just a couple of days to recover. Add in the fact that Jamaal has been coming off an ACL injury - an injury in which the Chiefs were extremely cautious -...
