Chiefs vs. Chargers: The best and the worst

His Dirkness of AHPKC.com recaps the Chiefs' thrilling 23-20 victory over the San Diego Super Chargers with the best and worst moments of the week The Kansas City Chiefs are a good football team.

Chiefs show resiliency in win over San Diego

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs were such a mess in their season opener against Tennessee that they were quickly written off, their dramatic turnaround last season considered a fluke. Turns out that conclusion was premature. After steadily improving over the first few weeks of the season, the Chiefs earned a marquee victory Sunday when they rallied for a 23-20 victory in San Diego — not only knocking off one of the league’s hottest teams, but taking a big step toward the top of the division. read more

Chiefs rested, ready for matchup with Chargers

SAN DIEGO — The bakery the San Diego Chargers have been visiting the past three weeks is closed. In other words, no more cream puffs. After fattening up on three bottom-feeders, including two winless teams, Philip Rivers and the surging Chargers (5-1) host Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs. While the Chiefs (2-3) are sub-.500, it’s an AFC West rivalry and the teams played two close, wild games last season. Overall, the Chargers’ six opponents this season are 11-22. The past three are 1-16. read more

Chargers CB Flowers practices Friday

SAN DIEGO — Chargers cornerback Brandon Flowers practiced on Friday as San Diego prepares for Sunday’s game against the visiting Kansas City Chiefs.

Coach Mike McCoy was encouraged with Flowers’ progress. “He did a nice job,” McCoy said. read more

Chargers face challenge against Alex Smith

SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Chargers’ streak of facing inexperienced quarterbacks ends Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs and Alex Smith. San Diego has faced two rookies and a second-year pro in its last three games, wins over the Jaguars, Jets and Raiders.

Otherwise the Chargers saw rookies in Jacksonville’s Blake Bortles and Oakland’s Derek Carr. read more

Chiefs pass defense faces tough test vs Chargers

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The sight of quarterbacks feasting on the Kansas City Chiefs’ defense left an impression throughout the final seven games of the 2013 regular season. The Chiefs allowed an average of 306 yards passing per game, and finished 25th in the NFL in pass defense last year. That doesn’t include Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck’s 443 yards passing in the playoffs. The swirling Midwest winds blew in a change from a season ago. The Chiefs are currently ranked seventh in the NFL against the pass. read more

Flowers hopes to play vs former Chiefs teammates

SAN DIEGO — Brandon Flowers hopes he’s a quick healer. The Kansas City Chiefs are coming to town Sunday, and boy wouldn’t Flowers love to be healthy enough to play against his former team. Flowers was released by the Chiefs in June even though he was coming off his first Pro Bowl appearance. The cornerback quickly signed with San Diego and leads the Chargers with two interceptions. He was forced out of Sunday’s win at Oakland with a groin injury and didn’t practice Wednesday, so his status for Sunday is uncertain. read more

Chiefs get back to work after bye

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Andy Reid won his first 13 games the week after a bye. He’s lost his last two. That doesn’t mean he changed anything this season. Reid gave his team nearly a full week off, despite a frustrating loss at San Francisco that sent the Kansas City Chiefs into their bye with a 2-3 record. That is a departure from many coaches who give their players only a couple of extra days off. read more
