Hunt rushes for a 5-yard TD (0:45)

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Philip Rivers has now thrown 13 interceptions with six TD passes in the last eight games against the Chiefs. All were Kansas City victories.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Kareem Hunt now has two career 150-yard rushing games. Both have come against the Chargers.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

I caught the Chiefs at a low point – covered their losses to the Giants and Bills in back-to-back weeks. At that time, the offense was struggling and the offensive line was taking the responsibility, saying they had to get it together and do a better job for Kareem Hunt, as they had earlier in the year. Credit to them and their coaches for turning it around. This win is huge.

Smith strikes quick to Hunt for TD (0:32)

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chiefs, by the way, have never won back-to-back division titles, not even going back to their days in the old AFL.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chiefs are well on their way to claiming their second straight AFC West championship. They can do so by winning either of their last two games, on Christmas Eve against the Dolphins at Arrowhead Stadium or New Year's Eve against the Broncos in Denver. The Chiefs would hold the tiebreaker against either of the two teams that could conceivably wind up with the same record, the Chargers and the Raiders.

play
Hill goes the distance for a 64-yard TD (0:55)

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chiefs have 222 yards of offense in the first half but only converted that bounty into 10 points. They can give credit for their four-point lead over the Chargers to another strong defensive effort.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

That Tyreek Hill TD feels like a win for the Chiefs. The Chargers haven't been down by double digits since a Week 8 loss to the Patriots.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Feels like a loss for the Chiefs to have to settle for FG on this drive. They overcame a lot, including a 15-yard penalty and an eight-yard sack and converted on a fourth down. Needed a TD there.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Travis Kelce already with two catches, or one more than he had against the Chargers when the Chiefs were in L.A. in September.
