Los Angeles Chargers vs Kansas City Chiefs: Open Thread

Tony Gonzalez thanks Chiefs Kingdom for memorable night

They still have Patrick Mahomes, though.

The problem is the Chargers could be without their two best running backs.

Throughout the day, we'll provide you with the latest news on Gordon's status and whether he will play.

The 24-year-old closed out last season with three sacks over his final four appearances, and has taken his game to a new level this season, with the 11.5 sacks he has amassed during his record-setting run, propelling him to ninth in the NFL. You get an opportunity to play in these games, it will be a little cool. That type of split could frustrate fantasy owners of both backs, as they would each become solid potential RB2s but would rely more on TDs to supplement their production.

Justin Jackson - Not a name you are familiar with?

"What is it, Week 15 in the NFL?"

A Los Angeles loss would've given Kansas City (11-3) the AFC West, but the Chargers, now also 11-3, held the Chiefs off for at least another week with Thursday's one-point win, clinching their first playoff berth since 2013 in the process. He wound up finishing his college career at West Alabama, and went through counseling and other requirements that convinced the Chiefs to give him a chance.

The house near Nablus where Naalwa was found was peppered with bullet holes after the raid, an AFP journalist at the scene said. Two soldiers were killed and at least two other people, including a soldier, were wounded and the attacker fled.

There have been signs this week that Chiefs safety Eric Berry will make his season debut against the Chargers.

Should Gordon miss the game, Jackson would be the man to start in the Los Angeles backfield.

"It is killing him not to be out there", Reid said, "but at the same time, you want to be smart with it". Rivers is completing almost 70% of his pass attempts on the season. He already has 29 touchdown passes, five shy of his career best, and his interception rate is the lowest of his career. The Texans slipped two spots to No. 7 after being defeated by the Colts 24-21 to end their nine-game winning streak. "He's a guy who can make all the throws", Chiefs cornerback Kendall Fuller said. Hard to envision that won't be Kansas City, at home. Benjamin would provide a big body on the outside and some additional depth with Watkins likely to be out.

The Chiefs' solid record of getting to opposing quarterbacks when playing in prime time should also work to Jones' advantage, as he looks to extend his newly established National Football League record.

I thought we were supposed to get respect after we beat the Pittsburgh Steelers.

I am going to go with a Yes here, they are an explosive offense, at home.
