Smith roasted for butchering Chargers-Chiefs preview

Smith roasted for butchering Chargers-Chiefs preview

The win clinched a postseason berth for the Chargers for the first time since 2013.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill (heel, wrist), who is questionable for Thursday night against the Chargers, will play, according to a source. And when it was confirmed by video review, Chargers coach Anthony Lynn sent his team out for a 2-point conversion and the win. Also, their top receiver, Keenan Allen, left in the first quarter with a hip injury and did not have a reception.

After trailing the entire way, and still facing a 28-14 hole with 3:49 to go, Rivers led his team on a drive that fill-in running back Justin Jackson capped with a touchdown.

The Chiefs and the Chargers come into this clash with great records and this Week 15 game could well decide the AFC West divisional title.

Smith came on to talk about the Chargers-Chiefs matchup on Thursday Night Football, the problem is that he knew little about either team.

On the very next play, Rivers looked for Mike Williams in the end zone, but overthrew him.

The defense, needing a quick stop, then forced a three-and-out, giving the offense the ball back at the Chargers' 40-yard line.

Rivers completed 26 of his 38 attempted passes for 313 yards and two touchdowns, while for the Chiefs Patrick Mahomes threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns, completing 24 of his 34 passes.

Rivers was sacked twice in that contest, marking the sixth time in seven outings that he has been sacked multiple times. He was limping badly late in the Week 14 overtime win over the Ravens, but Hill should be heavily involved in a big divisional game against the Chargers.

Williams found himself alone in the end zone to secure the 2-point conversion. Overall, he caught only 11 passes for 95 yards as a rookie. Again, it is understandable given the Chiefs had beaten Rivers and the Chargers nine straight times that complacency had crept in.

They also improved to 6-1 in one-score games and 6-1 on the road.

It still boggles the mind how we can continue to see this behavior out of K.C., the kind that makes rival fans afraid to cross its border, and see nothing change. "We've had a lot of close games this year and we find ways to win".
