Kansas City Chiefs
Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-17 last Sunday improving to a 7-2 record. The victory marked Kansas City’s third straight win–its longest win streak of the season. Mahomes finished 26-of-35 for 331 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 1 interception on Sunday. The fifth-year starting QB continues to be a consistent and dominant force for the Chiefs, leading the league in passing yards (2,936), passing touchdowns (25), passing yards per game (326.2), and ranking 4th with a passer rating of 101.6. Kansas City enters this week’s matchup as the top seed in the AFC and is on pace to host the AFC Championship Game for the 5th straight season.
Justin Herbert and the LA Chargers (5-4) fell 22-16 to the San Francisco 49ers last week on Sunday Night Football. Herbert went 21-of-35 for 196 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the loss. The Chargers, who have been heavily impacted by injuries this season, played without starting tackles Rashawn Slater (left bicep tear) and Trey Pipkins (left MCL sprain) on Sunday. The team also played without their top two receivers Mike Williams (ankle) and Keenan Allen (hamstring) and lost top tight end Gerald Everett who sustained a groin injury in the first half. 6th-year RB Austin Ekeler–who currently ranks second in the league lead with 10 touchdowns this season–says injuries are no excuse for the loss.
“We got guys that got to step up,” Ekeler told reporters at The Athletic. “I don’t care who is out there. If you’re on the field, you’re getting paid to play. You got to step up. You got to make your plays. It’s an opportunity. Yeah, I get it. Yeah, we got some of our guys that are down. But that doesn’t matter. … We all got to make plays. If we’re on the field, that’s what the whole team is depending on you to do.”
Sunday’s matchup marks the fifth NFL meeting between Mahomes and Herbert. The previous four meetings were all decided by six points or fewer (two went to overtime), with Mahomes and the Chiefs winning three of the four games.
